“In their case, the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we are not proclaiming ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God who said,”Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of knowledge of God’s glory in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2 Corinthians4: 4-6
These were the words read in Scripture by our team this morning in our quiet time. We live “sent”as light to the people of Panama and to our team. We are spiritually preparing for what lies ahead. We were reminded this morning that we are in a battle. The battle is real and our young adults get the opportunity to be on the front lines in sharing the Gospel.
We proclaim Jesus and because of this, our eyes are wide open to His amazing grace. Our eyes are wide open to the glorious truth of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Our eyes are wide open to seek the lost--those who have been blinded by the enemy. Would you continue to pray for us as we put on the armor of God and prepare for the incredible journey that God has us on?
This morning, Walker taught our young adults how to S.H.A.R.R.E the Gospel and engage the people we are sharing with. Peggy taught on Ephesians 6:10-12 on the reality of spiritual warfare and how to fight the battles we are in. This is the incredible part of the journey we are on: discipleship. Our young adults will be challenged to dig in the Word and seek the truth through the pages of the Bible. We want them to establish a solid foundation as they move forward in their journey with Christ.
You would be so proud of your young adults as they have learned the drama quickly. Many of them have never performed the drama before. We have one more day to practice in preparation for Panama.
This evening, we gathered for worship and the team spent time learning about traveling do's and don'ts, packing and logistics as we prepare to depart for Panama this week. The Lord is doing a great work in the hearts of our team.
