GIVING TUESDAY - Harvest Missions - November 28, 2023

Connie and I are so grateful for the way God has blessed Harvest Missions over the years. We began several years ago with a burden and call to reach the nation of India. I have made several trips to India to preach the gospel of Jesus. We have seen God powerfully touch thousands of people hungry for Jesus.

We have launched many outreaches to the nation of Honduras since 2007. God has moved mightily. The Holy Spirit has also called, anointed, and appointed us to minister to precious children in Honduras. We have been privileged to make several children available to be sponsored through loving folks here in the U.S. and the numbers continue to grow!

In 2011, while in Honduras, the Holy Spirit laid upon my heart these words, "Pray that I will cause Harvest Missions to flourish for My glory." When I heard these words I was extremely excited and began immediately to pray them. God has honored those words powerfully since then. I still pray faithfully that He will continue to cause Harvest Missions to flourish for His glory alone!

This giving Tuesday (and beyond) would you prayerfully consider making a donation to Harvest Missions? All donations are completely secure through PayPal and tax deductible. Harvest Missions is a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit, and a certified non-profit by PayPal. See the donation card below. Thanks so much for your consideration.

Servants and Managers

"This is the way any person is to regard us: as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God." (1 Corinthians 4:1)

I love this verse. I love the way Paul clearly states how we followers of Jesus are to be regarded as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.

Every true Christian should be considered as servants to our master, Jesus. That's who and what we are. A follower of Jesus (a Christian) has surrendered their entire life to Jesus. We haven't done this simply to go to heaven, and not hell, but to follow His every command and leading right here on the earth. He is our master, and we are His servants. We serve Him, not the world. I don't know about you, but I want to be considered first and foremost as a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. My calling, profession, or vocation is secondary to my being His servant. And since those who follow Jesus should be regarded as His servants, we must serve others as well. Serving Him gives us the authority and the power to serve others.

According to the verse above, we should also be regarded as stewards of the mysteries of God. A steward is simply a manager. The mysteries of God are the mysteries of His kingdom. A natural (yet to be born again) person cannot accept the things of the Spirit of God. (See 1 Corinthians 2:14-15) But those who are born again have the capacity to understand and follow the principles of God's kingdom. To the unsaved, they are mysteries, even foolish.

A manager of the mysteries of the kingdom of God has the capacity to discern and appraise all things. This means we can distinguish between the natural and the spiritual, making clear to us what are mysteries to those who don't serve Jesus. One who is a good manager of the mysteries of God is one who faithfully lives by the principles of His kingdom and manifests His love through the mysteries, even if misunderstood and rejected.

Fellow believer, know that you are a servant to master Jesus, and a manger of the things of the Spirit of God. Apply what you know. Allow God's Spirit to reveal His mysteries. Desire to make an impact on lives wherever you are, at any time. Have a blessed day!

Jesus doesn't promise us that as His followers we will never have struggles. What He does promise us is that He will be with us always, even in the midst of the storms of life. With things in our world today spinning out of control, listen to these comforting words of Jesus. “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me." (John 14:1) “These things I have spoken to you so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) What a comfort! Jesus has overcome the world. Matthew's account of the Great Commission ends with this statement by Jesus, "...and behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

John later writes under the leading of Holy Spirit, "For whoever has been born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world: our faith." (1 John 5:4) Jesus has overcome the world, and those who receive Jesus into their hearts also overcome the world!

Jesus promises you and me peace that passes all comprehension, because in Him we overcome the world, every single day. (See Philippians 4:6-7) Our part as Christ followers is to stay close to Jesus and His Word. We must live according to His Word, applying it to our lives every day.

A distinguishing characteristic of a follower of Jesus Christ should be a supernatural peace, in the midst of challenging circumstances. This peace is connected to the blessed hope we have in Jesus. It is not based on circumstances, but on the truth that Jesus has overcome the world, and has given you and me the same victory!

Put your trust in Him my friend. Hope in Jesus, and experience the supernatural peace that passes all understanding. Peace in the midst of the storms of life is one of the greatest blessings of knowing Jesus. Call on Him now. He is waiting lovingly for you.

I discuss a major key to overcoming the struggles of the flesh. We are dead and alive. It's important that you know what you are dead to, and WHO you are alive to. Please give this video a "thumbs up" if you are blessed. And please subscribe to my YouTube channel. Thanks so much!
