Loving the least, Yard Sale Countdown, Upcoming events!

This week, I would like to forward to you a message from Robbie McAlister, a friend of mine and a pastor and missionary who is in Greece, ministering at a refugee camp there. In this letter sent originally to my friend John Hopler, you will be touched by Robbie’s heart—his compassion for people and His love for Jesus Christ and His kingdom.

One aspect of being a disciple is being a good steward of all God has entrusted me with. These include my time, my personality, my strengths and abilities, my finances and the things I own. Stewardship can be defined as the management of my God-given resources for His glory and the good of others

To make your life really count for the good of God’s Kingdom, and to bear fruit in your life that lasts for eternity, you must build your life on a rock-solid foundation that never shifts or falters – and that foundation is God’s Word. To build your life on the shifting sands of worldly wisdom, fame, riches or pleasures is simply a foolish choice to make.

Sometimes, we want to get even with someone who's done us wrong. We call this vengeance, which is such a common and natural human reaction. But to take our own vengeance is of the flesh (fallen nature) and we are to leave it to God (Romans 12:19). You and I should not be returning evil for evil done toward us, or as my mom taught me, "Two wrongs don't make a right."

Praying for others (intercessory prayer) has powerful results! Why? Because we are taking our requests for others to the One Who loves us greatly and who has the power to answer any request we have.

The basis for answered prayer is to put your trust in the ONE who answers prayer. You will trust Him more as you know Him better! What are two key truths you must know and believe about God to be able to pray with power, and see mountains moved in your life? One, you must believe that God is willing to answer your requests. Two, you must believe that God is able to answer your requests.

As a member of God’s family, you are precious to God and are loved by Him no matter what level of spiritual maturity you are at. However, God desires that you continue to grow to the next level of maturity, for His glory and your joy.

Because of the sorrow in this world, mankind loves to escape. When things get tough, people escape to alcohol, drugs, sports, or the movie theater. Whatever will help us forget about the sorrow in this world, people seek in order to function in a world of sin. But Paul had another way for his young disciple, Timothy.

Our relationship to Christ is unlike anything else in the human realm. It can be described only by comparing it to relationships we are familiar with. It is like a deep friendship. It is like two people in love with each other, or like the love and respect shared by a parent and child.

Many of us have been “humbled” by hard times and difficult circumstances and have still remained arrogant. “Being humbled” is not the same as humility. The former is what happens to us. The latter is what we choose to do with God. Humility is an act of our will, a choice to rely on God and not ourselves. James and Peter describe the results of pride and humility this way: “God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (James 4:6, 1 Peter 5:5).
