Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.
It has literally been an awesome week working with 70 men from several different states and about 15 different churches. These men are working like well-oiled machines accomplishing various tasks on our new and future campus. We are blessed.
The work the “men on a mission” group is doing totals up to around $100,000 of donation in labor costs. That is a huge gift to our church and a huge push forward to the completion of buildings for The Community Fellowship and Dream Center.
One of the blessings and encouraging things that happens when a mission team is together are the stories and testimonies we hear from those on the team. Two men from our church and I sat with Dr. Don yesterday for several minutes listening to all God has done in his life (he is the man standing in the picture). I will not recount his story for you other than to share how God had mercy on a young man when he was ready to literally give up. He also shared how God saved him through the prayers for a faithful acquaintance and then how God saved his father. The story of his dad’s salvation including acts of forgiveness that took my breath away.
Are you ready to share what God has done for you? Be ready as the verse above says. Tell others what God has done, what you have learned and more. Just like the building and how it is coming together, share how God is putting your life together for your good and for His glory.
I cannot wait to hear more from this team and see their accomplishments over the rest of the days of this week. We really are blessed!
