FEEDING

“Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me’” (Mt 25:37-40).

Gathering

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near” (Heb 10:23-25).

“Humility is the key to the spiritual life. What are we if we fail to abide in the great commission, to “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations” (Mt 28:19)? I suppose we’d be missing the point, altogether. As scripture states, “there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord” (1Co 12:5), which means that we all have different “missions” put on our hearts. As I’ve learned, the Spirit may move each of us differently at different times in our lives. For example, I’ve been standing behind a pulpit in some way, shape, or form now for about 15 years, with the past 7-8 of those years as head pastor over a congregation. The experience has been magnificent, but I’m now being called to lead in other ways, as well, beginning with a trip to the other side of the planet. God willing, my son and I will reach many souls, spreading the good news of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This world is accelerating towards darkness, but there’s always hope because there’s always God, and “with God all things are possible” (Mt 19:26).”

“‘Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you’ (Mt 7:7). After taking in various forms of the Word, whether it be reading my own Bible, re-listening to messages, or reading suggested material from the pulpit, it has become clear to me what my true purpose in this world is. Jesus didn't come into this world to condemn it but to save it (Jn 3:17, Mk 2:17) ,and so He focused His whole ministry on spreading His good news, doing the will of his Father. Being a believer and living in that truth has motivated me to want to do the same. I realize that God does not need me to do His work, but I am grateful to Him for giving me the opportunity to take part in His great commission (Mt 28:18-20). I am excited to see what He will do in the souls of others, as well as my own.”
