Editor's Heart for September 2022

But Jesus called them to [Himself] and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave-- just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

~ Mat 20:25-28 NKJV
My heart has been meditation lately on the subject of changes happening in times and seasons, the need for the Body of Christ to be flexible in situations yet unmoving as to what is true and holy and righteous. Seasons change, but Jesus Christ -- the Word -- does not. What does that have to do with the verses I quoted from Matthew (above)? Well, there seems to be a lot of talk lately about elevation, promotion, being lifted up, etc. But the truth remains the same: The way up is down. Kingdom dynamics say that we must humble ourselves before God will even consider lifting us up. The heart that SEEKS elevation cannot be trusted with an exalted status. The heart that DESIRES promotion cannot be trusted with a position of command. The heart that HUNGERS to be seen and noticed and acknowledged cannot be trusted with being in the spotlight. To be great, you MUST serve from your heart. And get this: if you are only serving because the Scripture says you have to serve to be great... to be elevated... to be promoted... you've missed it already. Rather in our seeking, let us SEEK the face of God (Psalm 27:8); in our desiring, let us DESIRE God (Psalm 73:25-26); let our HUNGER be for Jesus the Bread of Life (John 6:35). If we seek, desire, and hunger for God, for Jesus, for the things that pertain to righteousness and holiness... if our hearts are set on these things... God will elevate/promote us and we will never even notice we've been elevated because that is not where our eyes and hearts are fixed.

Father, teach us to hunger and thirst for You in greater measure than ever before. Cause us to lay aside our desire for acknowledgement so that we can desire You more. Amen!
If you seek the Lord, you WILL find Him!

Praise Reports

There is always so much going on that it's difficult to make mention of it all! This past month has brought a lot of change. Some of it has been uncomfortable and "stretchy"... I'm sure you know how that feels! But it has been good for us as individuals and as a ministry.

We took a trip to Wilderness Deliverance Camp in Calion, AR. For those of you who don't know, WDC was founded by Pastor Daryl Nelson, who was the Senior Pastor over Mission Evangelism International (Timothy House and Mary Magdalene House) in New Orleans. He recently went home to be with the Lord, so we took a much needed retreat weekend there. I think I can speak for all who went on that trip when I say it was such a sweet time of refreshing. We came home rested and ready to push forward with renewed vision and rekindled FIRE!

Repentance Call Mission:

The next Repentance Call (RC) mission trip is taking place this month on Friday, 09/23/2022, and Saturday, 09/24/2022. We greatly need prayer warriors to come alongside us and cover us with prayer. Some general guidelines for intercessors:

Pray for the churches/ministries in the host city:
• For laborers to be sent into the harvest. (Matt 8:38)
• To return to their first love and have the fire of God rekindled.
• To have God’s heart for the lost.
• Renewed desire to proclaim the gospel in their own city.
• To not be ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pray for the RC Team:
• All boldness and clarity to speak the Word of God. (Acts 4:29)
• Health and safety of the team.
• Spiritual preparation for the mission.
• Gentleness, patience, and humility to correct those who are in error. (2 Tim. 2:24-26)
• An open door for the Word to be preached. (Col. 4:2-4)
• To operate in unity and one accord as a team.
• For the world to see the love of God through their love for each other.
• For all financial needs for the mission trip to be met.

Pray for the lost in the host city:
• To receive salvation, deliverance, baptism in the Holy Spirit, healing. These things are the will of God, therefore we can ask with boldness.
• To break the spiritual blindness that stops them from seeing and receiving the light of the glory of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (2 Cor. 4:4)
• Spiritual thirst. (John 4:13-15)
• Ears to hear and hearts to receive. (Luke 8:11-15)
