God doesn’t need your money. Neither do we.
It’s simple. This Ministry is going to continue with or without you. In fact, it could go on without us. Why? The message of Grace Turned Outward is bigger than any one of us. It’s a God Message and God will be the one to carry it out.
Did you know that God did not call Abraham to take his family out of Ur of the Chaldeans? No, really, he didn’t! It was his father, Terah, who began the journey. In Genesis 11:31 we find out: “Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, the wife of his son Abram, and together they set out from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan. But when they came to Harran, they settled there.”
You know where Harran is? It’s just halfway to the promised land. Terah stopped short. So, God called Abram to go the rest of the way.
God’s plan was to build a nation from the line of Abraham and reveal himself to the world through them. Terah stopped short. But that didn’t stop his plan.
When the children of Israel crossed the wilderness but lost their courage to go on, that didn’t stop the plan of God. He just waited for a new courageous generation to arise led by the two people who saw the land flowing with milk and honey and not the giants.
God’s plans will go forth. That is not in question. The only question is who is going to be with Him when they do?
No, we don’t need your money. God doesn’t need your money. This ministry will survive. This ministry will thrive. The message of Grace turned Outward will be proclaimed if we have to stand in the marketplace and shout it out through megahorns. The Gospel of Welcome will be proclaimed in cyberspace if we have to log in at the public library.
We are not begging for your support because God needs it to share his message with others. No, we are begging for your support because YOU need to be part of His great mission to preach acceptance to the rejected, to share hope with the despairing, to speak peace in the midst of conflict, to defend the weak, to vanquish hate with love, to banish the darkness in the brilliance of God’s light.
We sometimes say you are partnering with us. That’s not quite it. Both you and we are partnering with God in His great enterprise. We are building the Kingdom of Heaven. That’s not a burden. That’s not a nuisance. That’s not something annoying. That’s a great opportunity!
