The power of one video

Years ago while doing outreach in our community I learned the power of having just one video and what it can achieve.

As a ministry we were giving away free Jesus Films in our local community. We would deliver pamphlets during the week to let people know that we would come the following weekend to give them a free movie about Jesus.

We found that one in every three homes wanted to take a video. This was inline with the national averages. They found one person wanted a video, one was not home and one person was not interested.

At one home we knocked on the door. A lady answered and said she was waiting for us to come. She was very keen to have a copy of the Jesus Film as she had been thinking about God lately.

We left her a free video and said we will be back in a few weeks to see how she went and if she had any questions.

When we returned a few weeks later we were very surprised by her response. We asked if she had watched the video. She said I watched the video and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Saviour. We were very happy.

Then she said that is not all. When her husband came home, they watched it together. Then all of her children had watched it and received Jesus too. We were overwhelmed that one video had brought a whole family of six to Christ.

Then she said that is not all. She took the video to her work in a nursing home and the 66 residents watched it and many of them received Christ. We were overjoyed and praised God.

This experience showed the power of just one evangelistic resource. One Jesus film reached over 70 people for Christ. Our intention was to reach one person, but it snow balled in to over 70!

From this time on I have never doubted the power of one video, one tract, or one visit to our website. We never know how God is going to use what we have in our hands.

Toady I wonder what I have in my hands that God could use? What have you got in your hands? We never know how God could use one evangelistic item for His Kingdom!

Free discipleship Bible study

One of our most popular resources at PASSION Australia is our free discipleship Bible study. It has been downloaded tens of thousands of times.

I originally wrote it to disciple my children when they were younger. Since then I have revised and expanded it and used it with our church for new Christians and our young people when I was a Pastor.

Over the years I have received emails of people telling me they used it for themselves, to disciple a friend, and churches using it for new Christians program. It has been even translated in to other languages.

Each page of the booklet has a simple study that will teach you about the Bible, prayer, church, serving God, sharing your faith, the role of the Holy Spirit and being assured of your salvation.

It includes a number of Scriptures on each topic, some reflection questions, an explanation of a key Bible word, a simple prayer and some Bible memory verses.

If you are interested you can download it for free. You don’t even have to put it your email address. You can find it here.

Time for a new blog

Hello all,

I have decided to begin afresh and start a new blog on WordPress. After blogging since 2005 mainly on PASSIONAustralia.org, I decided to hit the delete button and start again from scratch. It is something that I have thought about doing for a while. But it took a while to take the leap!

As you can imagine 15 years is along time and things change a lot. Fifteen years ago I lived in a capital city, now I live in a small country town. I had young children, now they are grown up and have left home. I worked in the government, now I have worked as a country church Pastor at several churches.

Those things alone are a lot of changes, but I have also since starting blogging I have attended Bible college. This changes you too. So much so that much of what I wrote 10-15 years ago, I would not write today or I would say it differently.

So what I am going to write about? Being an ex Pastor and a former Bible college student I want to write about faith, life and the Bible. I will also share my sermons I preach, the articles I write, and others resources that I have written over the years.

So I hope you enjoy my new blog. I am hoping to post a few times per week.

God’s Richest Blessings,

Dave
