This week at our church, we are having Missions Conference. Tonight we spit up on groups and met at individual homes. At each home there was a missionary to speak about their mission field. Our mission family was Bro. Mike Groves and his family. They are going to go to New Zealand.
My daughter wrote about the meeting and even videos some of the beautiful music we were blessed with. Check out her blog , you will be blessed.
One thing that struck me was Bro. Mike said allot of churches are not taking on missionaries because of the economy. That is so sad. Our country, although we are in a recession, we are still very wealthy compared to the poverty throughout this world.
My prayer is that more churches will be taking on this missionaries that are willing to sacrifice and go. We can be a part of their team and support them financially and with prayer.
Our homeschool group from our church is planning an missions trip to Mexico in May. We are going to be doing some serious fundraising for this trip. I will have a blog up in the near future to explain what we will be doing on our trip. I'll let you know when that is up.
Please go check out Rachael's Blog about the Cottage Prayer Meeting tonight. Also, another touching post that shows how God works is on Shaivangi's Blog..Check out this awesome testimony.
This is my works for me this week. The Missionaries need all our support, financial or prayer. I hope this has inspired you to become involved and work for missionaries...That's what works for me!
Do you know for sure where you will go when you die?
The Bible says you can know 100% that you will go to heaven when you die. How you ask?
1. You must Recognize Your Condition
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." This means that NO ONE is good enough to go to Heaven on his (or her) own merit. No matter how much good we do, we still fall short of God's perfection.
Uh oh....that's not good....but read on!
2. You must also Realize the Penalty for Sin
Romans 6:23a "For the wages of sin is death...." This means that just as there are wages (payment) for good, there is punishment for wrong. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called Hell.
Uh oh...still not good...but here comes the good....no...GREAT news!!!
3. You must Believe that Christ Died for You Romans 6:23b ".....but the GIFT of God is eternal life through Christ our Lord." Romans 10:13 "For whosoever (meaning anyone and everyone) shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." This means that Everlasting life in Heaven is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him in faith.
If you would like to accept God's gift of eternal life all you have to do is ask God for it in prayer. (realize that it is not mere words that save you, but your faith that Jesus died for you.)
We'll help you word a prayer.
Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sins. Jesus, come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. I believe you died on the cross for my sins and I'm trusting in You, and You alone, to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving my soul. Amen
If you prayed this prayer please let us know so we can Rejoice with you!
