Monthly Newsletter September 2013 Scripture of the Month: We're Christ's representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God's work of making things right between them. We're speaking for Christ himself now: Become friends with God; he's already a friend with you. 2 Corinthians 5:20 (MSG)
Monthly Highlights… “Let’s Rap”: Taking the Word to the Streets During the month of August, Swagga4Christ Ministries and Divine Faith Ministries, Inc. hit the streets of Springfield, Ma to begin the outreach “Let’s Rap.” As we walked the streets of Springfield, it was miraculous how open people were when talking about God. We were blessed to have the opportunity to talk to various people from various walks of life. From a grandfather walking his grandchildren to a teenage girl who was not ashamed to express her opinions on the church, it was a blessing to see God at work. There was one man in particular and his three children who confirmed the importance of this outreach. As we conversed with him and his children about Jesus, he told us that, a few minutes before he ran into us, his son found a cross pendent on the ground as they were walking down the street. He explained to us how he just moved to the area and how he was looking for a church home for him and his family. He felt our meeting was confirmation to him of God's calling and he said he would come to church. So many times, we forget the everyday people. Think of how many individuals you walk by, drive by on a daily basis. How many times, in the midst of our busy daily routine, do we actually take a moment to remember the everyday people we come across. Let us start becoming more mission and ministry minded and less "me" minded. Let us not get so caught up in our church cliques and our Sunday Services that we forget we are called to preach the gospel to the nations. If God's been good to you, you better tell somebody while you still have time!

The World & The Word Connection
For many of us, the month of September marks the beginning of the school year. As we start this new school year, no matter what grade you are in, whether it be middle school, high school, or college, remember that in everything you do, you represent Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20). As the word says, you are the salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13) and the light of the world (Matthew 5:14). As you interact with your friends, teachers, and whoever else may come your way, make a promise to act as Christ would have you act throughout the school day. Instead of giving into peer pressure and involving yourself in things you know are not pleasing to God, make a vow to yourself and to God that this year is going to be your year. Make a promise to yourself that you will not settle for less than your best, not just academically, but with the people you chill with, the conversations you have, and the things you involve yourself in throughout the day. Remember, each choice you make has an effect. Make the choice to choose Christ in all situations… and lastly, have a great school year! Minister Rhonda Watts-Robinson
