Have you ever wondered what the world would be like if people shared how much God loves them with a complete stranger? Or even with the people they know in real and practical ways? That is one of the ideas behind our Outflow teams. Far too many believers these days find it difficult to share verbally much about God. In the Gospel of Matthew (11:4-5), Jesus is asked by John the Baptizers followers if he is indeed the one to come. When at other times Jesus’ response might be “it is I” or “I am” this time Jesus sends them back with these words, “Go tell John what you heard and see: the blind receive their sight and lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them.” Jesus said, “Wisdom is justified by her deeds.” As believers we know that the ultimate wisdom comes from God the Father. Our desire is to show God’s great love through small acts of kindness.
May the God of of HOPE fill you with all Joy and Peace as you trust in Him, so that you may Overflow with Hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13 (NIV)
