“Season’s Greetings – 10:02 – and Beyond”
Season’s greetings Alaskan Nazarenes and friends of “The Great White North”. “The Great White North” seems especially fitting as I write this blog today looking out my office window on a snowy South Central Alaskan day.
The holidays will soon be upon us, with Thanksgiving, Christmas and a New Year all coming in rapid succession.
Is it just me or is time passing way to quickly?
I was just reminded early this morning as I heard of the home going of a loved friend and wonderful servant of our district, of just how important it is to continually invest in our relationships with our loves ones and friends.
The holiday period is a tremendous opportunity to build relationship and make relational memories. Its also an opportune time to intentionally share our love relationship with Jesus with those in our families, our friends and our wider circles of influence, naturally – organically as the Holy Spirit opens the door and directs.
The best gift I have ever received, or hope to receive was and is the gift of Salvation in Christ; sin forgiven, a transformed life, and the wonderful knowledge of knowing my name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Praise the Lord Jesus, I am so thankful for His grace and mercy.
Its my prayer that we may be Holy Spirit empowered to share the gift of Jesus during this holiday time. Could I also encourage you to join countless thousands around the world in 10:02 prayer.
Luke 10:2 says:
“. . .The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask
the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out
workers into his harvest field.” NIV
Set your alarm on your phone or watch for 10:02 am or pm and join with thousands in every time zone around the world praying for a spiritual harvest like the body of Christ has never seen before!
He is exceedingly abundantly able (Eph. 3:20)!!!
Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and a God blessed New Year to each of you!!!
Sharing the Gift,
ALASKA FOR JESUS, EVERY HEART & HOME,
EVERY CONGREGATION & COMMUNITY, NO ONE LEFT BEHIND!!!
