Think of it like planting seeds in God’s garden. You plant a seed by giving the gift of a cross to a person, sharing scripture, committing to pray for that person, and sharing the gospel about Christ. The Holy Spirit then begins to work in thatperson’s heart and life. Together, we can grow a garden of God’s love and peace across this earth. One Cross to One Person… It’s beautiful quiet evangelism. It’s being a disciple. The Great Commission: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and in the name of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always until the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
