I am sure that you are aware that we are in the midst of a campaign to bring the good news of Jesus to the people that live along the I-35 corridor in our region. What a joy it has been to work with Pastor's and churches that are aligned with the great command (love people) and the great commission (go and make disciples). Yes, its not terribly complicated, we are called to go in love and tell people about Jesus Christ and what He has done for them. The good news for us as believers is that we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to go and tell the story of Jesus and what He has done for the world. Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Jesus also said, "The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore to send out workers into the harvest field." Matthew 9:37
On Sunday March 26th from 6 to 8PM the church will be gathering in our activity center to worship our God and ask the Lord of the harvest to send workers into the fields. We will also pray that God tenderise the hearts of people that do not know Him yet so that the gospel will open them up to Him.
Then on Friday April 28th from 7 to 9PM we will again gather in our Activity Center to worship our God and pray that God Himself will open wide doors for effective, fruitful ministry.
On Saturday April 29th starting at 9AM we will start off in prayer and worship and then send teams of people into Forest Lake to pray for people, love on people and share the gospel with people as the Lord leads. The event will be wrapped up by 3PM.
The day is coming soon when Jesus will return and call us all to Himself. If He returns in our lifetime or not, I want to be found doing what He has called us to: walking in purity, regularly receiving His power to witness and then in that power going forth to share Jesus and His great love.
Jesus said, "Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men!
