THE MIND OF CHRIST (1 Cor. 2:16)
The only way we can have the mind of Christ is to study His word, believe it in our heart, and act upon it. This came in from one of our regulars ... Just look what happens when you get the mind of Christ and start listening to His call.
How are you my friend? Well I have wonderful news. God is so good to me, Praise His Holy Name. Last week I was praying for Jesus to show me in what area he wants me to minister. I have felt a need to feed the homeless. Last week I was in prayer and I felt I had to go to the store and buy food, cook and feed God's children downtown. Cheli was supportive and excited. I really didn't know what to do or how to do it. I just trusted God to show us. I picked Cheli up and we headed to the streets. We weren't doing very good so we prayed God would show us the way.
Then when we turned the corner we saw a line of homeless people Glory to God. A little lady was reading the Bible and praying. She was in a walker and had 3 boxes of sandwiches she made. I asked if we could help. She said she didn't have much to give but she prayed that it would be enough and she knew God would provide. I told her we had food/drinks in our truck for our friends. What a blessing. How wonderful our God is, How Mighty! Cheli and I realized that this is the ministry Jesus had put in our hearts.
We do not have the resources to feed 100-200 people a day. I was in prayer yesterday and felt God telling me to go, right then, to our church and talk with our Pastor. I felt it was so urgent. After getting there, Satan tried to tell me that I was wasting my time, I didn't have a right to be there asking for his help for who was I. I rebuked him.
The Pastor was very glad to see me. I told him of the calling in our hearts, he smiled and said this is confirmation of what he has been praying for. He has prayed for leaders to emerge and minister in different areas of need. He has wanted to have a ministry to the homeless and maybe even a van to pick them up to share bread on Sunday. He said that Cheli and I had come to mind that very morning and he had prayed for us. God is Awesome!!!!! The Pastor wants us to minister under the church and he will help us buy food from the food bank. What a blessing.
Ferd, I tell you this not only so you can rejoice with us but so that you can tell people that when God calls you to step out in faith, even though you can't see the path, if you trust in him he will guide you and provide for you. I know this is true. Your prayers have made a big difference. We look forward to meeting you and your wife soon. Cheli and I have gained a lot of strength from your web site. Jesus knows you are continuing his work and spreading the Fathers Kingdom. May God continue to Bless you and your family. I consider myself very fortunate to have you for my friend.
Your Brother and Sister in Christ Jesus, Jim and Cheli.
This is what makes the 2jesus site so fulfilling. Thank you Jim and Cheli our Brother and Sister for showing us the mind of Christ.
