I'll Fight Day

 

What is I'll Fight Day?

I'll Fight Day is a Salvation Army youth servant evangelism day that will take place all across the world on Saturday, December 6th, 2014. I'll Fight Day is a way for you to share the Gospel through practical acts of kindness: like giving out free hot chocolate, returning shopping carts or cleaning up at a mall food court. These acts are done "in Jesus name" for the purpose of sharing God's love in a way that leads others to ask "Why are you doing this?"

This event is a local, youth-led initiative where you and your friends can decide how you want to serve others in your community. There are many helpful resources available to help you participate in this event. Instructions, resources and promotional graphics can be downloaded on this website.

The opportunities are endless for you to show the love of Christ in practical ways and help identify the Kingdom of God in your community. This is a great chance for you to join the revolution. I'll fight to the very end! Will you?

Where do We Do This?

I'll Fight Day happens in your own city, neighborhood, corps, local mall, parking lot, intersection - wherever you can plant the seeds of revolution! Use this site as a resource for ideas, but I'll Fight Day is what you make of it, right where you already are!

 

What about Servant Evangelism?

Servant Evangelism

Servant evangelism is an opportunity to surprise people with God's love.

You can do this in many ways: like giving out free hot chocolate, returning shopping carts or cleaning up at a mall food court.

The goal is to show God's love to others in practical ways with no strings attached.

Essentially, servant evangelism is any activity that is:

Servant evangelism softens the hearts of people who are not yet Christians by doing a "low-risk" activity that shows "high grace." It is a way to bless others in the hopes that they will become more open to the saving message of Jesus Christ. These small acts of kindness can nudge a person closer towards God, often in profound ways.

Every Christian should be willing to participate in a "low risk" activity such as handing a stranger a cold can of Coke on a hot day. The "high grace" is seen in the typical reaction: "Oh, thank you!" "This is so nice!" "I can't believe this is free!" Ultimately, servant evangelism tries to open the door for conversation, in the hopes that someone asks the important question, "Why are you doing this?"

“ The goal is to show God's love to others in practical ways with no strings attached. ”

Jesus talks about this kind of ministry in Matthew 10:42, when he instructs: "It's best to start small. Give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty, for instance. The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice. You won't lose out on a thing." (Message).

What makes servant evangelism so effective is that almost anyone can participate regardless of age or spiritual maturity. Anyone can give out a cold cup of water, shovel snow or pay for a free load of laundry. These seemingly random acts of kindness can help others receive a touch of God's love. Just make sure that you are ready to share why you are doing these things-"in Jesus' name"-when the opportunity presents itself.

I'll Fight Day is something that anyone can do in their community. We pray that this exercise in servant evangelism will spur you and your friends on toward love and good deeds. We hope that you will catch a glimpse of the exciting Gospel of Jesus Christ; Good News that can be shared in many beautiful and creative ways. We believe that I'll Fight Day is just one way we can fulfill our calling as Salvationists to "win the world for Jesus."

When The Salvation Army ceases to be a militant body of redhot men and women whose supreme business is the saving of souls, I hope it will vanish utterly.
- William Booth
There is a danger of the old clergy and laity idea creeping in amongst us. The common church idea is that of a minister doing all the fighting and feeding, while his congregation does all the looking on and swallowing. We are an Army. Every soldier is expected to fight.
- Frederick Booth-Tucker
Work as if everything depended upon work and pray as if everything depended upon prayer.
- William Booth
Soldiers of Christ must be abandoned to the war. They must be thoroughly committed to God's side; there can be no neutrals in this warfare.
- Catherine Booth
We are not sent to minister to a congregation and be content if we keep things going. We are sent to make war and to stop short of nothing but the subjugation of the world to the sway of the Lord Jesus.
- William Booth
They say the fighting is too hard,
My strength of small avail,
When foes beset and friends are fled,
My faith must surely fail.
But, O how can I quit my post
While millions sin-bound lie?
I cannot leave the dear old flag,
'Twere better far to die.
- Frederick Booth-Tucker
Show them the very essence of religion is love; the love that shows itself in benevolent effort for the salvation of others.
- William Booth
If the people will not come to see us, the greater is the necessity and urgency that will be laid upon us to go to them. And to them we Salvationists must and will go.
- William Booth
Why we might give the world such a time of it that they would get saved in very self-defense, if we were only up and doing, and determined that they should have no peace in their sin.
- Catherine Booth
Love will not be barred by criticism, not bound by custom. It bursts forth and flows over in new ways every day.
- Catherine Bramwell-Booth
The world for God, the world for God;
I give my heart, I'll do my part;
The world for God, the world for God;
I give my heart, I'll do my part. - Evangeline Booth
The church of Christ is perfect when she is fulfilling her intended end as the body of Christ, acting as His eyes to search out human need, His feet to run to meet that need, His hands to succor need, His lips to speak comfortable words to those in need. Thus behaving, His church is a glorious church, without spot or wrinkle, perfect in the Father's sight because she is fulfilling His purpose for her.
- Frederick Coutts
It is the timidity and delicacy with which men attempt God's work that often accounts for their failure. Let them speak out boldly like men, as ambassadors of heaven, who are not afraid to represent their King and they will command attention and respect and reach the hearts and consciences of men.
- Samuel Logan Brengle
What we want is more of this love which touches, breaks, and melts hearts. It is the greatest force in the universe. This love requires nothing for itself; it can live without gratitude and die without a thank you. It can endure, persevere, suffer. This love hopes where everyone else despairs. Love shuts the door on doubt and carries the feeblest in its arms. It encourages when all the world could discourage.
- The Officer - 1917
While women weep as they do now, I'll fight; While little children go hungry, as they do now, I'll fight; While men go to prison, in and out, in and out, I'll fight; While there is a drunkard left, While there is a poor lost girl upon the streets, While there remains one dark soul without the light of God, I'll fight- I'll fight to the very end!
- William Booth
