Our world is filled with hurting, lonely and stressed out people!! The Christian Church at large is called to reach out, starting at our doorsteps then going to the uttermost parts of the world. We should reflect the Legacy of Christ our Savior. When Jesus walked the footpaths of His homeland He questioned the motives of the religious phonies but He reached out to the outcast. He touched the untouchable, healed the sick, loved the unlovable, fed the hungry and even raised the dead. He brought hope to the hopeless but He was constantly criticized by the "politically correct powers that be" of His day! The powers that be of His day were religious in nature and by choice. They looked down their "holier than thou" noses at all those that were not in sync with their click. Jesus Christ defied their cultish mindset and set the "captives free" with the message of Grace to all who would believe!!
"For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."(John 1:17 KJV)
The message of "Grace and Truth" that Jesus gave us is still going forth today, it still changes lives, it still raises the hopeless to new heights of Hope! There are ministries in "regions beyond" that are still reaching the darkest corners of the world where the Name, Jesus Christ, has never been spoken...
I'm am honored to be part of such a ministry in India where God has placed our ministry in the leadership position to ordain, teach and enable 40 Preachers to go into villages that have never heard of Jesus, cleanse the lepers, feed the hungry, care for orphans and widows!!! The ministry has now grown to 13 God's House/India Churches!! Even though we constantly hear an extreme amount of negativity, we watch in amazement a world spinning out of control but God is working miracles in the lives of people every day!!
God is so amazing He knows where you are today and what you are processing at this very moment, so lean on Jesus, He will do whatever is necessary to see you through your time of trial.
