By His PRESENCE, Christ brings the gift of OPPORTUNITY into the life of
each and every believer: the opportunity to share Jesus with others.

Matt 28:18-20
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is
given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have
commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto
the end of the world. Amen.

Light from the Word.

The presence of Christ in the world brought LIGHT to God's plan
for mankind to be saved from sin.
That presence brought the LOVE of God displayed by God incarnate
giving His Holy blood for unholy sinners.

His presence brought the realization that God is seeking PEACE with
all men; and that God desires to ADOPT us into His own family.
His presence also brings the ability to have COMMUNION with Him
at any time.
And, His presence brings the ability to GROW and be a part of His
FAMILY - the church.

The REASON for all these special PRESENTS given by His PRESENCE
is that:
God wants us to have the OPPORTUNITY to share salvation through
Christ with others!

By receiving Christ's PRESENCE, one receives the "power" imparted
by Christ to learn, grow and share His salvation with others.
(Matt. 28:18 above, John 1:12, Acts 1:8)

"Where the word of a king is, there is power...." (Ecc. 8:4)

Have you received His PRESENCE?
Then you have received OPPORTUNITY!
Teach others how to BE saved.
Get them baptized, and
Teach them how to LIVE saved.

Love ya!
