CONNECT people to Christ and POUR into their lives His teaching so they'll OVERFLOW for the glory of God

Far and Wide

I suspect that you are familiar with that fun Christian children’s song “Deep and Wide,” which alludes to the abounding grace of God found in Jesus Christ.  The news of that deep and wide fountain needs to be spread far and wide.  We need to spread the fame of God!

To help you do that, here are 10 biblical ways to make God’s name famous.  These are things that if you will do them in the name of the Lord, you will be so contrary to the norm of this age and this world that people with say, “God is awesome and worthy of praise!”

So, make the Lord’s name famous by:

  1. Living each second as if it says something about the glory of God because it does (1 Corinthians 10:31)
  2. Making God your heart’s desire (Psalm 37:4; Matthew 22:37)
  3. Loving your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:39)
  4. Loving those who don’t love you (Matthew 5:43-44; Luke 6:27-28)
  5. Boasting about God instead of yourself (1 Corinthians 1:26-31)
  6. Longing to please Him more than your flesh or man (Galatians 1:10)
  7. Giving your money a primarily kingdom-focus (Matthew 6:19-20)
  8. Leaving room for the vengeance of God (Romans 12:19)
  9. Sharing the gospel everywhere possible (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)
  10. Longing for the return of Christ (Revelation 22:20)
