Opportunity… The ministry of Jesus was all about bringing as many opportunities for people to hear the gospel. To the culture in which he preached, people were abused, beat-up, and hopeless. It was his mission to show them that another type of life was possible. We see this in the words he spoke to the disciples:
“And he said to them, ‘Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.’ And he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues” (Mark 1:38-39).
It is with this reality in mind that I am starting a new mid-week ministry. On Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm, I am inviting people from our community to join me at Gwynn’s Coffeehouse to engage with the Bible. We will be starting with the book of Colossians. Why? Paul’s point in writing this letter is to help people understand both the supremacy and sufficiency of Jesus Christ. There is nothing that people need more than to hear this timeless truth brought into our current context.
Please pray for this new ministry and consider bringing a friend to hear the message.
Love to all,
“Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching” (2 Timothy 4:2).
