Our memory verses for this week are:
These verses I share with you every week come from a list that “The Voice of the Martyrs” uses in Iran for house church members to memorize. They need our prayers!
The world is full of so-called underground churches who love the Lord and want to spread the news that He loves them… no matter what the cost.
There seems to be people who are hungry for the Lord everywhere these days. Here and around the world!
We must continue to use our freedoms to share Christ every chance we get.
Paul said to Timothy: 2 Timothy 4:1-5
1I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: 2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
Our readiness to give was proven again just a couple of weeks ago!
Once again… our Special Missions Offering went over what we asked for! But… the need for the Hibbs and Brother Relova is great! They do so much with so little. They will be guided by the Holy Spirit and use this offering to accomplish a lot more than if we were spending it on ourselves!
What we received in the Special Offering became sacred, given to the Divine with pure hearts. It became a divine instrument that God will bless the missionaries and their ministries with. The money will go further in their hands than it ever could in ours.
Now… let’s follow through to pray for those we have just invested our money in!
It’s an investment that God Himself says will come back to you with even more blessings!
Thank you for your faithful giving and the sincerity in which it was given!
