Letter from the Editor
The love of Christ and the peace He brings is reason enough for Kirsten and I to jump for joy. Jump with us, Saints, because He is risen. Amidst everything that goes on around us daily, sometimes we need to act a little ridiculous to bring us back down to earth. I pray that you can take some time to laugh at yourself and others (in a good way).
The burn in my Spirit is about our role as a hospital for the sin-sick and terminally ill. I shared last night at Inspiration Fellowship about the struggle we have as a ministry to save, heal, or change anybody. And God is so gracious because
He then gave me this vision into the inside of a hospital where patients were coming in with wounds that, if unattended, were going to cause death. A truth about hospitals is that in an emergency, the doctors have an obligation to do whatever possible to save the patient regardless of who they are and whether or not they have insurance. Of course, we as individuals cannot save anybody, but God spoke softly to remind me that those who walk into The Cupbearer Café and the Fellowship Center are His responsibility. Their salvation is His obligation.
Thank you, Holy Spirit, for being the encourager and comforter that You are. Brethren, my heart hurts, and I know that I am not alone. The enemy is attacking through addiction, dysfunctional marriages and families, unemployment, and apathy. Not only do we see physical death because of sin, but we are seeing what little life some have left slowly drain out. However, the time is upon us to allow the same power that raised Jesus from the dead to empower us for His will and work. It is time for us to show our thanks to God by doing what the Word says, allowing the Spirit of God to lead us.
This month, as you make your list of those who you are thankful for, be sure to share your testimony of God’s grace in your life. Allow people to see a life that is not dictated by circumstances, but by the Spirit Who resides in you. Decide to love others until they ask you why. Make the Cure available to those who are riddled with death.
I thank God in my remembrance of you (Phil. 1:3). To you whose faith testifies to the life of Christ Jesus, I thank you. For a God whose obligation is the salvation of souls who do not know the Truth, to Him be all glory and praise. Thank you, Brethren, for continued prayers. Thank you, Jesus, for your faithfulness when I was terminally ill, away from You. Thank you! Hallelujah!
Inspired and thankful,
