outreach program of Christian Family Fellowship Ministry. It is a 100 day commitment to discipline oneself to incorporate prayer and praise, reading God's Word, speaking God's Word, deliberate and
purposeful giving, and fellowshipping with the saints into one's
lifestyle. The main thrust of Messengers
For Christ 2
is walking by
the spirit and preaching Christ according to the mystery. This is facilitated by
executing the curriculum in the Messengers
For Christ Handbook 2
Programs options: There are
two options: at home or at large. The at
home program is where the Messenger
For Christ remains in his current living situation and performs the program
by himself or with a partner, with direction and support from program
coordinators. The at large program is where the Messenger For Christ makes himself
available to relocate to a new area and unite with at least one other Messenger For Christ to do the program
together with direction and support from program coordinators.

Using Your Handbook Lessons
When you awake turn
your heart to God in prayer and praise by speaking in tongues. Continue to speak in tongues as you wash
and dress and prepare for the day. Sometime in your regular morning routine (It could be before or
after eating) reserve 20-30 minutes to do your Lesson for the Day. This should be separate from the time you set aside to accomplish your
lift list or handle other MFC responsibilities.
Reading the Lesson for the Day:
Your MFC commitment involves reading God's Word for at least 15 minutes and reading your Lesson for the Day. I suggest reading your lesson first,
because you may want to follow up by reading some of those verses in context. Prayerfully approach the time believing
God for it to be meaningful. Psalms
119:18 says "Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy
law." I have found that repeating
that simple prayer before opening the scriptures has been very valuable in
making my time in the Word more profitable. After a few moments in prayer begin
reading with the anticipation of learning something valuable.
Hebrews 4:4 says, ";For unto us was the gospel preached, as
well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed
with faith in them that heard it." To receive the profit of God's Word we
must mix it with believing. To do
so requires that we act upon what we read. The design of the lesson is to lead the Messengers For Christ into walking forth on what is read. The complete cycle of learning involves
receiving, retaining, and releasing. We receive with meekness (James 1:21); we retain with conviction (Titus
1:9); we release with boldness (Acts 4:31). The plan begins with reading, so receive
with meekness. The next challenge
will be to retain it with conviction. So, identify two or three important points you want to remember and take
with you into your day. Perhaps you
might want to memorize the verse of the day or write down a point or two to
share with someone later. The
purpose of the lesson is to teach you something to share later on with a new person. If you live with other Messengers For Christ perhaps you might
want to share with each other before leaving home in the morning.
You may be familiar with the hymn, How Firm a Foundation. It begins, ";How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, is laid for
your belief in His excellent Word!" It is only the Word of God that provides the solid foundation for our
lives. One great way to establish
that foundation is to affirm it. The way you affirm it is by stating it. We confirm or ratify the truth by
solemnly asserting it, by expressing agreement to it and commitment to it. Use these affirmations at the bottom of
the page or make up your own. They
will make the verse of the day more living and real. Say them; express them; state them with
verve. Be enthusiastic, vivacious
and animated as you do so. You can
make the truth more living and real to you with affirmations.
I'd like for you to discipline
yourself to start every conversation saying, ";God bless you!" or some variant
of that like, ";Well, how's the Lord blessin' ya today?" or ";God bless you my
brother." or ";The Lord be with you." The idea is that we train ourselves to go beyond the customary, ";Hello."
or ";Hi." We want our greeting to
communicate our heart. Ruth 2:4
contained the kind of Biblical greetings exchanged among God's people in the
Old Testament. Boaz greeted his
reapers, saying, ";The LORD be with you." and they answered him, ";The
LORD bless thee." These were
God-fearing men who wanted God's best for each other. Indeed Psalm
129:8 tells us there was something wrong when God's people passing each other in
the way did not say, ";The blessing of the LORD be upon you: we bless you
in the name of the LORD." We have
the privilege and authority to extend God's blessing to those He sent His son
to die for. We want our greeting,
our handshake, our embrace to really
communicate that we honestly care about them and desire God's best for
them. When we bless them in the
name of the Lord, they will be blessed. We have the right and authority to do that, and we must learn the impact
we can have on people as we do. We
are looking for an occasion to pray with them or minister to them, and this
kind of greeting may start us down that road. Remember to get into the habit of
smiling; smile at everyone you see. Smiling will make you approachable and open doors of utterance. Let God's love shine! The idea is to break the inertia of not
speaking by opening your mouth with the intention of helping someone.
A Suggestion Regarding Retemories:
You have committed to memorize ten verses of scripture
during the program. Get started
right away and make sure you use them in affirmations and conversations. The sooner you learn them the longer you
will be able to use them and bring the power and impact of the Word into your
life. (See page 52 for more on retemories.)
the Checklist and Daily Schedule
Checklist and Daily Schedule are designed to aid you in remembering and keeping
your commitment. Prayerfully use
them in the evening to review your day and plan the next. There is space on the right side of the
schedule to write down things you learned and keep a daily journal. Then, after completing your morning
activities, check them off the checklist and review your schedule for the day
before leaving home. If you have a
plan of whom you are going to speak to and when you are going to do it, it will
help facilitate you successfully completing those tasks. You will learn to see the doors of
utterance God opens to you. Your
faithfulness to go through the doors will help solidify your relationship with
your loving heavenly Father and see how He works with you and within you to
will and to do His good pleasure.
These tools are not to be a source of condemnation,
but rather a springboard for success. Ecclesiastes 5:4 says, ";When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no
pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed." It is important for our personal growth
and integrity that we follow through on our commitment. This is only a 100-day commitment. We can do anything for 100 days. Most of us will be establishing new habits,
and the transition isn't always easy, but it doesn't have to be difficult
either. You can do it! Don't let the devil plant thoughts of ";I
cannot" in your head. Condemnation has no place in the walk of
20:25 says, in the Bible
in Basic English version, ";It is a danger to a man to say without thought, It is holy, and, after
taking his oaths, to be questioning if it is necessary to keep them." Other versions render ";danger," ";snare"
or ";trap." The devil will always
try to convince us that any and every commitment we make to God is impossible
to fulfill. So don't question
whether or not you are able to keep your commitment. God has promised to work within you to
will and to do of His good pleasure. You can do it. If you miss
or skip a day just double up the next day and go at it more aggressively than
before. Even if you are sick or
restricted to bed for a day or two (which we should not expect or experience),
use your phone and be inventive. You and God can always figure out a way to do what you have vowed.
Psalm 61:8 presents the key to being able to keep your
vows. It says, ";So will I sing
praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows." We praise God so we can keep our
vows. Our praise indicates how
grand we think He is... how magnificent we believe He is... how mighty we know He
is... We expect Him to work in us and
bring the best out of us. We can do
what we committed to do because we do not have to do it on our own. We are laborers together with God. Let's expect success. Let's also make sure we ask for help
when we need it. You can reach me
(Wayne Clapp) at 937-308-9324 or email@example.com. Don't let the devil get you discouraged. I also love testimonies of God's
deliverance. So if you are tested
turn it into a testimony of praise for God's presence and power with and in
You will notice there are extra lines on your
checklist. These are there in case
you would like to add other things to the list, like: follow up with new person, go to the
park/mall, floss my teeth, etc... There are enough Checklists to get you through the entire 100 days. In addition to this handbook you also received
a booklet with schedule sheets and a set of retemories. An additional schedule booklet will be
mailed to you upon request. The
pages before the lessons start are designed to help you establish a morning
routine, and the pages after the lessons are designed to help you with your
evening activities. Before you
close your eyes to enjoy a peaceful sleep, collect your pay. Your pay comes from knowing you did your
utmost for His highest. You can
close your eyes in peace and sleep in safety because God has granted us peace
with Him. This 100-day Messengers For Christ program is all
about developing your relationship with your loving heavenly Father. Keep your focus on Him and His love for
