Pursue God With All Your Heart

Weekly Ministry Tip #2

Below is a picture of the desert of Judah, which is on the western side of the Dead Sea.

Judean Desert, East of the Dead Sea

In Psalm 63:1, David writes from the Judean desert,

“… earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.”

The Judean desert environment, can be sweltering hot at times. How does anyone survive that? That was the environment David was in when he wrote Psalm 63. David’s heart was to seek for God diligently with his whole soul, mind, desire, emotion, and passion. In the same way that he longed for water in that dry and parched land, he also pursued God.

How about you? Are you pursuing God with all your heart?

Follow-Up Of New People To Your Ministry

What are the keys to good follow-up once you have done a survey/questionnaire on campus and/or have identified some very interested students?

First, be sure you know how to share with them the Gospel message.

Second, do a good job at leading your Bible studies.

Third, party! Be sure you’re doing some good social events that allows people to connect and build close relationships – that is a great foundation for why people will continue to come back to your meetings/Bible studies.

Fourth, do it quickly. As soon as possible, be sure to call and text interested students and let them know you care and would love to connect with them.

Go for it!
