You've Been Appointed Ambassador to the World!

Scriptures for study number 8 is 2 Corinthians 5: 1 - 6:10

What are the implications for being an Ambassador for Christ in the 21st century? Take time and reflect on who God used to be Christ's ambassador to you?

Seeing the World through God's Eyes
As we approach, the end of this entire Bible study we have a very strong picture for God's heart of the world. God is requiring the church to explore ways to be a mission mobilizer in your specific area.

Our prayer is that God will raise up a host of people to be his ambassadors. Are you ready for the task?

I welcome your Comments below. Study #9 is our last session.

Don't Just Stand There - Go!

The scripture for this study is Acts 1: 1-11

What if you knew that you only had five minutes to live and that all of the world was listening to hear your last words, what would you say?
It sometimes appear that many Christians view global witness as an after thought, something to do when everything else is in place such as various projects and programs.

Seeing the World Through God's Eyes

God is looking for healthy cburches. Everyone can have a part in making God's name known and honored in all parts of the earth in many different ways. To what aspect of global missions is God calling you? You see the Great Commission was written to each believer. Let's keep our heart open to whatever God is requiring each of us to do in our Jerusalem, in our Judea, in our Samaria, and in our ends of the earth.

Sometimes churches have a tendency to be inward looking and to focus only on their own needs. God, however I believe is looking, in this hour, for His churches to be more mission-minded to have a passion for world-wide missions. His desire has always been to reach every tribe, tongue, and nations. It is a theme from Genesis to Revelation. God is a missionary God. And, since we are imitators of Him, don't just stand there - Go!

Please go to the Comments section and communicate what Holy Spirit has spoken to your heart.

So Many Needs - Where Lord?

My prayer for International Missions in any church of Jesus Christ is to be who God called you to be and to go where he calls you to go. That is to complete the unfinished task of making Jesus Christ known to every tribe, tongue and nation! Find out what God is doing and plug into it. It's that simple and since it's God's mission, He will do the rest! He is looking for Carriers . . .enjoy this video clip and song as it expresses part of the heart of God for the nations.

Oh what an incredible awesome thing to know that the Father in heaven knows each one of us by name. Even the unreached and unengaged people groups of this world. What an awesome God( the true and living God) we serve! This is another one of my favorite songs. . .And, look at our brothers and sisters in other lands -... let us remember them in our prayers and in our giving. . .

Here is what God is doing in Haiti . . .watch this oh my God!

Here is a video clip in the Ivory Coast.  The husband of one of VCWC's member is from there.   This is not his video clip, but this is shown to denote the lack.  He states that there are many unmet needs especially for church structures and all that goes into them.  He is working with church leaders to establish a faith community with  integrity.  He is doing what I have been learning from the various presentations from the network meetings I attend monthly.
