As we take on a new outlook for the year, we need to remind ourselves that Jesus has plans for each one of us to be guided by the Holy Spirit and do the same ministry as He did. (Jn. 14:12; Lk. 12:12). We have been commissioned by Jesus to "go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation” (Mk. 16:15) and to be His "witnesses unto the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8). Every day is a new day, and an opportunity to do the ministry of Jesus. (2 Cor. 6:2).
Where and why was Jesus born? It is hard to imagine that Jesus our “Saviour, and Christ the Lord” (Lk. 2:11), was born in a lowly manger in a stable amongst the animals because there was no room for Joseph and Mary at the inn. Despite His humble beginnings, the new born's first welcoming guests were 3 wise men/shepherds bearing gifts, who were invited by an angel, and accompanied by a host of angels (Lk. 2:8-20).
Jesus was and still is, "God in the Flesh," and His birth was not just to take away the sin of the world, but to establish a "New Covenant" with all His people. Each year people make new year resolutions, promises or oaths to God that they struggle to keep (Ecc. 5:4-7). God doesn't want our empty promises, He wants us to keep His "New Covenant" which offers Salvation, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, healing and deliverance: "Our God will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philip. 4:19).”
Gordon continues to minister Salvation and the "Gift/Gifts of the Spirit" all year 'round by accepting invitations from all around the world to preach the Gospel. And because of your prayerful help, he does not charge fees to these churches or ministries that invite him, regardless of their size. Like the Apostle Paul, Gordon is led by the Holy Spirit, and asks for a love offering gift to allow him to continue to accept invitations anywhere in the world.
Please pray and continue to be a “cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7) asking Jesus how you can contribute. (All offerings and gifts are income tax deductible. Income tax receipts are sent out during February 2018).
Please continue to help us to increase the harvest of people of all ages into the Kingdom of God for 2018 (Jn. 4:35).
