A lot of people love the ability to volunteer. They do this for multiple reasons:
For missions organizations, volunteers are especially a necessity, and we are no exception.
We are currently looking for volunteers to contact local Evangelical Churches in their area to fundraise on our behalf. In the future, there will be other volunteering opportunities available as well.
If you're interested in helping us through volunteering, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can learn more about our organization at https://www.pottershouseministries.org to learn more about us and the children's homes we're planning.
They're Not the Problem
”[I]f My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land,” 2 Chronicles 7:14.
It’s so simple to just blame everyone else for what’s going on. However, Scripture shows us that they don’t hold the solutions (God does), and healing comes from a revival of the saved, not from the purification of society.
We always want to look to other solutions because we feel that everything around us is evil (which it is). However, the solution isn’t better government or more pure (but unsaved) culture. Both of those would be good, but they wouldn’t solve the root problem - which is sin.
A revival of Christians is what’s needed, not less nudity in films, less violence on the streets, a purification of (still secular) society.
Until we as Christians (me included) realize this, we won’t see the change that is needed. Scripture tells us this clearly in 2 Chronicles 7:14. Yes, that was written for the Jews, but also for us (2 Timothy 3:16).
If “they” aren’t the problem, what can we do about it? James 4:2b-3: “[Y]ou do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.” When Christians’ motives become pure, we can see the changes that are needed.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9).
I don’t mean to frighten you, but there are real things out there that aren’t ok.
No matter what happens to you, God is with you if you are a Christian. You could be facing the worst of circumstances right now, but God has your situation under control, whether you believe it or not.
Take any major person from the Bible…
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego…
All faced major but different problems in their life, but they all have one thing in common. What is that?
God was with each one of them.
And, if you’re saved, He’s with you as well.
So, the next time Satan gets you to start worrying, think of Joshua 1:9. The enemy, who is the destroyer, will be destroyed.
Oh, and whatever you’re facing, don’t worry. God’s got this.
When the Wind Blows
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall” Matthew 7:24-27.
Jesus equates obedience to building your house on a firm foundation. Who is this foundation? None other than Jesus Himself. However, those who only listen to what God says (and don’t do it) are likened to a man who builds his house on the sand.
“[T]he rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” This is a powerful and scary warning. If you’re just attending Church, hearing God’s Word, but don’t apply it to your life and don’t obey God, the Bible calls you foolish.
COVID is a good example of this “rain,” “floods,” or “winds.” These are related to natural disasters as COVID is a natural disaster. COVID has either brought people closer to God or further from God. There are some who aren’t Christian after having gone through this period of COVID. They would be those with a house built on the sand. The scary warning given to those who built their house on sand is this: “And great was its fall.”
“Great was its fall” is an ominous warning to those who don’t follow what God says. This is the sudden destruction of spiritual life. It could mean at the end of someone’s life and they go to Hell, or it could potentially be the falling away of someone from the faith (1 Timothy 4:1, Hebrews 6:6).
Whatever this “fall” refers to exactly, it isn’t good. So the question is: What kind of foundation do you want to have when the wind blows? The storm is coming, so be sure you've built your home on the right foundation.
