What a privilege it is to be part of this church. This is a church that encourages its people to dream in God and run with the vision God has given them.
God called me to begin Emergency Resources as a way to reach the lost and bring them into a relationship with Him. Many people have come to us for food parcels over this time and we have seen many lives touched, people healed, and some have come to know Jesus as their Saviour. We on the friendship evangelism team are privileged that God has imparted to us the love He has for the people of this world.
Ezekiel 34:11-16 says, “For thus says the Lord God: behold, I, I Myself will search for My sheep and will seek them out…I will rescue them…And I will gather them from the countries…I will seek that which was lost, and bring back that which has strayed, and I will bandage the hurt and the crippled and I will strengthen the weak and the sick.” I love this passage because it speaks of God’s healing. Many of our clients have been battered by life’s circumstances, but Jesus can make them whole again.
Will you take hold of the Father heart of God and love those around you? It’s not always obvious when people are hurting. Maybe you know a colleague, neighbour or school mum who needs a touch from God. Ask God who you can reach out to in your sphere of influence. I pray that God will anoint you as you prayerfully reach out to someone.
