Faithful Deeds

"And so we keep on praying for you, that our God will make you worthy of the life to which he called you. And we pray that God, by his power, will fulfill all your good intentions and faithful deeds."

2 Thessalonians 1:11

The Dong Christians who want to reach out in mission are doing so in many different ways, and just like anybody who is honestly trying to spread the gospel of Christ, they are constantly trying new ways or implementing new ideas. In some ways, evangelism does not change, but many aspects of the style or method do change depending on the audience.

Our Dong brothers and sisters come up with many "good intentions and faithful deeds" as mentioned in the passage above. Let us pray, as Paul did for the Thessalonians, that God, by his power, will fulfill these acts of faith on the part of the Dong Christians.

Father, our Dong brothers and sisters often feel like they are under trained or inexperienced, but we all do...because the gospel is beyond all of us. Father, we ask that the steps of faith they take and the plans they attempt in your name would bear eternal fruit and see lives of men and women changed. Make them worthy of their calling, a calling to share their faith with others.
