Christian Action Calendar
Work for Reformation by Establishing a Christian Calendar
We want God to bless our nation - but God cannot bless a nation in rebellion to His Laws. We cannot expect God to bless a country that kills babies - legally - with tax- payers' money, which legalises and tolerates blasphemy as entertainment and which removes Bible education from the public schools.
"See the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, that we will no longer be in disgrace."Nehemiah 2:17
- Start or join an Action Group in your city. There are Action Groups that already exist all over South Africa. You may want to join an existing Action Group, start one yourself, or you may want to inform, inspire and involve your Cell Group, or Bible Study Fellowship, in prayer and action from the materials that we provide.
- Purchase a copy of Make a Difference: A Christian Action Handbook for Southern Africa. Make a Difference has excellent Bible Studies and "sound byte" information on pressing issues such as abortion, pornography, evolution, entertainment and abstinence, plus lots of How To's on letter writing, public speaking, events and outreaches. Our Christian Action Starter Packs have up-to-date info, ideas and tips for Action projects that you can get involved in.
1.Participate in the six-day Great Commission Camp (Starting on the first Friday in January every year.).Do you want to learn how to share your Faith effectively? If so, then join us for an Evangelism and Discipleship ‘boot camp’ at a forest campsite by a lake, in the mountains near Grabouw. The theme of The Great Commission Camp is Changing the Nations for Christ.
2. Celebrate Sanctity Life Sunday by preaching on the Sanctity of Life (last Sunday in January).
3. Observe the anniversary of the legalisation of abortion on demand in South Africa as a National Day of Repentance (1 February every year).
4. Attend the KwaSizabantu Ministers' Conference in KwaZulu Natal (every second year in March).
5. Use Human Rights Day as an opportunity to campaign for the most basic right of all - the right to life of the most helpless and innocent of all - pre-born babies.
6. Observe Good Friday as the most solemn holiday of the year contemplating the sacrifice of Christ that redeemed us from our sins.
7. Celebrate Resurrection Sunday as the most joyous holiday of the year. We serve a risen Saviour! Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life.
8. Celebrate Ascension Day. Forty days after Easter Sunday, Jesus ascended into Heaven. He is King of kings and Lord of lords. He has all authority in Heaven and on earth. We must therefore go and make disciples of all nations - teaching them to obey all things that the Lord has commanded.
9. Celebrate Pentecost Sunday - the official birthday of the Church. We need to continually go on being filled with the Holy Spirit.
10. Use National Women's Day (9 August) as an opportunity to campaign against the exploitative pornography industry.
11. Promote International Life Chain Sunday (the first Sunday in October) with a prayer rally and placard protest against abortion at a busy intersection in your city.
12. Celebrate Reformation Day (31 October) either by participating in the Reformation Celebration in Cape Town or by organising a special seminar or service at your church or school. We can provide you with recommended films, powerpoints or speakers.
13. Observe the International Day of Prayer (IDOP) for the Persecuted Church (second Sunday in November) each year.
14. Celebrate Christmas as the official birthday of the King of kings. Remind family and friends that Jesus Christ is the reason for the season. Wise men still seek Him. Christmas is a great time for evangelism, reaching out to the poor and lonely, for Christ-centred Christmas cards to relatives and witnessing to strangers. Put Christ back into Xmas (25 December).
