“Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy…” Lk.2:10.
Dear Mission Partner,
Without cataloging the dilemma of unbelievable events, we are all living through in these last two years; the good news is, we can rejoice! Our joy in this moment is that Christ has come. In the Old Testament as He encouraged Moses with task the of leading Israel (Isa.41:10) with the words: “Fear thou not for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Likewise, He is present with you, to meet your need today.
In the New Testament, (Matt. 17:7), on the Mount of Transfiguration, when Christ was with three of His disciples, they were terrified at the sight of Moses and Elias, the bright light, and the voice of God identifying Christ as His Son, they fell to the ground in fear. “And Jesus came and touched them and said Arise and be not afraid”. So today , for the believer who is grounded by faith in Him, one who has been grafted into the True Vine, a son by adoption, brought into the family of God, the assurance remains for you today: “ O Israel: Fear not for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name, thou art mine”. (Isa. 43; 1.)
Be assured, the victory is ours no matter what befalls. Because He is with us and we are in Him there is no fear. Christ represents perfect love. And, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear” (1.Jn. 1:18).
This is a season when “…Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain”. (Heb12:26-27). The believer is “…Held in the hollow of His hand, (Isa. 49:2). is secure in the grip of the hand that created and holds the universe. Fear not- look up, for your redemption draws near.
Christ came as promised the first time, He resurrected as He said, and His imminent second coming is at hand. As we celebrate His first coming at this Christmas time, let us with the same anticipation welcome His soon return. We are confident, with the Apostle Paul, who declared: “And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised he was able also to perform”. (Rom. 4:21)
Please be in prayer for a strong finish to this year end. We have so many projects needing monthly support.
Not having the annual dinner has shown how necessary it is. This is His work He will meet the shortfall by year-end.
Your continued faithful investment in His work is vital and appreciated from the bottom of our hearts.
From our home to your home, We send our best wishes for a blessed Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
