Sharing the Love of the Gospel Through Stationery- Why Does it Matter? Pt. 2

 

In last weeks blog article, I shared with you ” The Beginnings of Have Faith Stationery. ” Today in my two part series I will share with you my biggest reasons why I share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through stationery and paper crafting.  If you haven’t read part 1 of this series, please take a moment to visit it here

In today’s part two blog article, I will share with you 14 examples of the most needed and desired people to share the Gospel with through your handmade stationery and greeting cards. At the end of today’s post is a wonderful reminder from the King of Glory about giving to the needy and about earthly possessions.

If you are a card maker and have found yourself asking what else can I make? Who can benefit from the greeting cards I make?

 May I encourage you to create stationery to Glorify God and spread His message? I plan on using the tools and talent He’s given  to reach the lost and broken hearted in my sphere of influence. Would you like to join me in sowing the seeds of faith to reap a harvest of blessings for the Kingdom of God?

If this topic interests you, please have the liberty to get started.  In the weeks to come I have planned out a series of blog articles for Cricut Design Space Files that can help you get started with making cards.

14 examples of expanding the Gospel in the lives around you


  •  First, make cards for your family.  It’s so important to focus on the spiritual needs of your household before you branch out to share the Gospel.

  • Make greeting cards for the homeless
  • Make greeting cards for the lonely
  • Make greeting cards for the elder
  • Make greeting cards for the single parents and orphans
  • Make greeting cards for your enemies
  • Make greeting cards for the people who clean the toilets at your job
  • Make greeting cards for the sick and lame and tell them the Good News that Jesus heals all sickness!
  • Make greeting cards for the military, the veterans, and their families
  • Make greeting cards for the poor and meet their needs
  • Make greeting cards for the missionaries who will visit other countries ( the workers are few but they need your help)
  • Make greeting cards for your neighbors
  • Make greeting cards for the fellowship you attend so as a community of believers you can further expand your reach of the lost
  • Make greeting cards for the people that everyone else forgets about.

Jesus didn’t forget about You or them and we shouldn’t either!

Jesus’ Teaching about Giving to the Needy Matthew 6 NLT

 “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.”

Isn’t this message about giving powerful? In our culture the average person spends most of their time “sharing” all their good deeds on social media. Let us all live the example that The Lord Jesus Christ has set before us and give to those in need privately.

Jesus’ Teaching about Money and Possessions Matthew 6 NLT

19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

22 “Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. 23 But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!

24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.

25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God[e] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. 34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

I am thankful for the reminders from The Lord Jesus Christ about the things of this earth.  I am thankful that I don’t have to worry about my life because Jesus already has the provision I need daily. I really like making cards but I don’t want to make it more important than my relationship with God or people.  My focus for 2019 and beyond is that I will love the Lord with all my heart, mind, and soul. Then I want to love myself more and extend more love to my neighbors.

It is my hope that my 2 part blog article series “Sharing the Love of the Gospel Through Stationery- Why Does it Matter?” was a enormous blessings to you in your paper crafting journey and with people.

“How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”
Many Blessing in the Messiah,
