In the Bible Jesus is called many different things. He is the bread, the rock, the anchor, and the water. He is the Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.
Many times in my topsy-turvy life I have cried out to Jesus and found that these are not just names from ages long ago, but tangible realities in the present world. I have experienced powerful peace rising up and sustaining me in seasons of heartbreak. I have received wisdom from on high that has guided me out of distressing and sometimes agonizing times. And I have discovered the meaning of the verse, “The joy of the Lord is our strength,” in the midst of deep disappointment.
To think on these things stirs up two emotions within me. The first is deep, deep gratitude. The second is a heaviness because, in this hungry, shifting, stormy, thirsty world there are many who do not know Jesus. Many all around us do not know the peace and wisdom that the Almighty, Eternal Father loves to give. And, just like us, they need someone to help them believe and receive all that Jesus is.
The month of April brings our Easter Season. We want to devote our entire focus this month to helping people who don’t know Jesus, get to know Jesus. Please partner with us as we devote this month to reaching out, speaking out, and seeking out those who could be one conversation away from the everlasting and abundant life that Jesus died so they could have.
