Dear Partners, Just coming out of Passover week and the Easter weekend we have been reminded of the power of the blood of Jesus. It reminds us of the fact that our debts has been paid in full once and for all. In Ephesians 1:7 it says, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.” We have been declared righteous and now we have the power to walk in the assurance of all that Jesus has for us today. Because of His perfect love that casts out all fear we can walk in all the fullness of God which gives us the ability to walk in unity. In 1 Corinthians 12:27 it says, “The Lord is calling us as the body to come together in one mind and one accord. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” Life can be messy and in times of stress you may possibly experience strained relationships. We have to purpose in our hearts to live in peace and harmony. Through Jesus, God has given us the ability to be patient, loving and kind through actions and words. It says in 1 Corinthians 1:10, "I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought." Then it says in 2 Corinthians 13:11, “Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.”
When we come together in one mind and in one accord and begin to focus our lives on Jesus and put Him first it seems like everything else begins to fall into place as referred to in Mathew 6:33. When our mission team goes to Honduras one of the exciting things we get to do is put together bags of food to give to the poor. This will feed a family of 5 for an entire week. What would normally take days to put together we can accomplish in two or three hours. We are focused on one thing….. to get the bags ready to give to those in need. If we will focus on Jesus first and His righteousness all the other things we are concerned about will be taken care of. Thank you for your generous donations.
