“For such a time as this”: Prayer and Self-Denial 2021
For the next 3 weeks we are going to hear extraordinary stories of how God is working amongst ordinary people like you and I to bring Gospel renewal to places in our world. Satan is having a field day across all nations, using the pandemic to instil fear into the hearts of humanity. Perhaps our old ways of doing mission have been thwarted, but we follow a creative God who will never stop working until all things, in Heaven and on earth, have come under Christ’s rule and reign.
Our New Zealand Baptist Missionary Society (NZBMS) has people serving in South and East Asia, deeply committed to their communities, and partnering with locals, to bring gospel renewal where God has planted them. Prayer and Self-Denial is our chance to partner with them and save our pennies, over and above our tithes, to support their work.
Maybe you could choose to give up your bought coffee for 3 weeks and save that money or give up your take-aways or other luxury items and save that money for this great cause. We will be gathering up an offering on Sunday, August 15, to give to NZBMS. What a pleasure to partner with Christ in His mission in our world.
