SOWING THE SEED
One will view “investment” differently if we approach it from the standpoint of “increase” having to do with bringing souls into the Kingdom, and our eternal reward, instead of earthly benefits. God prospered us for His Kingdom purposes but until now we haven’t taken that seriously.
I take seriously the likelihood that because of new national policies and possible changes in national/world monetary systems, our time to exchange earthly treasure, for eternal, will be limited.
Someone asked me to share Elaine’s and my favorite charities. We are not deep pockets but try to give in accordance with 2 Cor. 9:7-8 and Mt. 6:19-34. Here they are, in alphabetical order. (Click on links)
EVERY HOME FOR CHRIST, Colorado Springs, CO – www.everyhome.org/ – Works with local leaders in 152 countries to share the truth and love of Jesus. They believe that every person on earth deserves the opportunity to respond to the truth and love of Jesus.
GLOBAL DISCIPLES, Lancaster, PA – www.globaldisciples.org/ – Partners with local churches in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, training those who will make disciples, plant churches, and give spiritual leadership.
HORIZONS INTERNATIONAL, Boulder, CO – www.horizonsinternational.org/ – Very effective in reaching Muslims in the Middle East. They proclaim the Gospel, disciple new believers and equip them to reach others.
PREGNANCY CARE CENTER, Wooster, OH – www.pccwayneoh.org/ – Skilled, compassionate care for woman and couples with pregnancy related and parenting needs. Free ultrasounds. Effective men’s ministry. Or find and support a PCC near you.
SAT-7, Easton, MD – www.sat7usa.org/ – Satellite broadcasting into the Middle East in several languages, including evangelistic, educational, children’s, and discipleship programs. Responses have increased dramatically since Covid-19 struck the world.
UNFOLDING WORD, Orlando, FL – www.unfoldingword.org/ – Highly respected leaders in developing Bible translation tools for nationals, and training in their use. Creative and skilled, with a focus on accuracy of translation even as they help to dramatically reduce the time needed.
VOICE OF THE MARTYRS, Bartlesville, OK – www.persecution.com/ – Serving persecuted Christians around the world, and dedicated to inspiring believers to deepen their commitment to Christ and to fulfill His Great Commission, no matter the cost.
Check them out! You might even find yourself selling some of your treasures to generate funds to partner with them – – while we still can. I believe that God is setting things up for a great END TIMES HARVEST and this is one way we can be part of it.
Supporting them financially also reminds you to pray for them, which is equally important.
