Greetings, peace, and joy be upon you this Advent Season.
I love this time of year that the Church celebrates God becoming a baby, born of a virgin girl. Jesus, the Anointed One, sent by the Father to bring salvation for all people, has given His Church a Great Commission to proclaim this good news to all people. It is a humble joy for me to encourage and equip
leaders to engage the poor to participate with our Lord in this Great Commission. Recently, along with a World Impact Team, I went to Africa to do just that.
Dr. Don Davis and I presented on the theme, MOVING FORWARD TO MULTIPLY, by using an “Unimpressive Method” (2 Timothy 2:2), by “Unlikely People” (Luke 8:26-39), for “Unlimited Impact” (Matthew 28:18-20). Truly, everyone was touched to the core of their spirit–that to magnify Christ for the sake of missions, we must go low (humble ourselves) that He might be lifted up.
There is an African proverb that says, “When spiders unite, they can tie down a lion.” The Kingdom unity amongst these church leaders will “tie down” any obstacles as they move forward in the Lord’s Great commission to take AFRIKA KWA JESU (Swahili for AFRICA FOR JESUS).
“…not of those who shrink back…” Hebrews 10:39
