Matthew 10:7-8

"And as you go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.' Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give."

I hinted in my last post about churches that are beginning to gain momentum.  Where people really do believe that they can change a nation.  Churches breaking out of the "mold" so to speak.  Churches that are more concerned with what is going on outside the walls than in.  Churches where people understand that the church is not a building, but it's really the people who are trained and equipped to take the good news of Jesus outside the four walls with boldness.  Tonight as I watched this video I was reminded of a passage in Luke 10 where Jesus sends out disciples into the towns and villages.

"He (Jesus) told them, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest therefore, to send out workers into the harvest field.  Go, I am sending you out as lambs among wolves.'"(Luke 10:2-3, niv)

"Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God has come near you.'" (Luke 10:9)

Tonight I am confident that the workers are increasing quickly in numbers.

Boldness is rising up among God's people.  Ministry won't always be easy.  Sometimes it is really hard indeed, but we are not to grow weary in doing well.  Sometimes........................ministry can be really fun, though, as you will soon see.

This video is of "The City."  A church in a small town of Geneva, Ohio.  A church that meets in a small town, but has big visions of how to get out of the box in bringing the kingdom of heaven to earth.  Churches just like "The City" are beginning to spring up all around the nation.  Together, these churches will bring the power of God back into a nation that has lost its morality.  Is your church making an impact?

Since this event this church has received cards with notes such as, "Thank you for helping me to find my way back to God," and,  "I had lost my faith a long time ago, thank you for helping me to find it again."  Those are just two, but the others are similar.

All glory to God,
Mark S.
