We are not in the business of making speeches or giving presentations. We are instruments of God to change eternal destinies!
Acts 26:18 “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”
Our mission to preach the Gospel is supernatural. The commission comes from God. We must be empowered by Him to accomplish it. Good organization is not enough. A sound plan is sufficient. We are in God’s business. He must energize our efforts to make the difference. Acts 26:18 gives us a five-point outline of God’s work in individual lives through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
1. Open their eyes
Unbelievers are blind to the Gospel. They are lost not knowing their way to God. Their lives are filled with sin and their hearts with doubt. Often, they are in bondage to a false religion.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by life’s responsibilities? Do you feel like you are failing in a vital area? Would you like to finally get control of your schedule and finances? Then it’s time to get your life in order! Be more productive in every area of your life with the Biblical principles shared in this Stewardship Kit.
We are stewards of the gifts and blessings of God. One day we must give an account to our Lord of how we used our resources and opportunities. These Bible lessons will enable you to have the best year of your life and give you the tools to live as a wise steward.
In today’s busy world, you will not be successful by accident. There have never been more things competing for your time, talent, and treasure. Responsibilities and distractions are at an all-time high in the digital age. If you aren’t careful, the things that matter most will not get the attention they need. Relationships will suffer, and your quality of life will decrease if you don’t live on purpose.
You can order your life in such a way that will enable you to be productive and fulfilled while you accomplish your goals, build meaningful relationships, and make an eternal difference. But you must decide to live on purpose by Biblical principles if you are to please God and accomplish your purpose.
