Passion for the lost!
“And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest. (Matthew 9:35-38)
“For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost”. (Luke 19:10).
Dear partner and mission friend,
The message is clear: for a Christian, to follow Jesus means compassionately seeking for the lost and bring them to Jesus. Numbers are not the important factor here. But the vital issue is, faithfulness to the call and the mandate God has placed before the Body of Christ.
How do we from Chrisma Ministries to the Nations go about this? Well, I trust you took some time to go through our website and read about the various aspects of our plans and believe. Basically we say: “We care and therefore we go into his harvest”
We from Chrisma strongly believe in partnership and friendship. By supporting us financially you will enable us to go into the harvest and partner with us. It is not how much but how you give unto the Lord. Let me try to explain our intention with an illustration: I ministered during a Conference for university students in Nigeria. During one of the meetings the Holy Spirit spoke to me and told me to ask the students for a special offering. So I did, and before I knew we found ourselves in the midst of an awesome, tangible and holy presence of the Lord. Students started to come with their gifts to the platform. >>
In addition to financial gifts, bibles and notebooks, they presented all kind of other personal belongings unto the Lord. The men stripped off their ties, jackets, shirts, nice shoes, watches, belts and even their socks, the ladies took off their, shoes, shawls, earrings, etc. How wonderful was it to be part of that meeting. These attributes meant a lot to those students but they sacrificed their belongings unto the Lord. It was really a special offering, a fragrant one, an acceptable sacrifice.
So, while reading this, let the Holy Spirit speak to you and then, from you heart, offer unto him whatever He asks of you.
