Ahhh....fall is here! This is so many people's favorite time of year, and it certainly is mine. We are fortunate to live in an area that gets to enjoy the four seasons, and there is something so special about fall. Of course one of the things that defines it is the change of color on the leaves. What is interesting is that what brings out the beautiful color of the leaves is the fact that they are dying. You know, there is in interesting parallel we can draw from this. When we die to selfish ways and allow Christ to shine through us, that's when the beautiful colors (expression) and fragrance of Christ is shown through us. The Bible says "for we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and those who are perishing" 2 Cor 2:15 (NAS). As a Christian there is a wonderful spiritual fragrance we carry to the world when we get "self" out of the way and completely yield to God's plan for our lives!
I am so appreciative of the many churches I've gotten to minister with since I launched this ministry in July 2010. I thank you so much. We've seen some wonderful things that God has been doing in the churches, and I believe God is truly preparing His people for end times ministry. I believe God is accelerating...I don't know how to explain it completely, but I believe things are happening very quickly to prepare God's people for action. We see this with technology especially. I believe God is going to use it as a vehicle to reach so many people for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Lord make us ready for whatever you have for us to do!
