This world is a dark place. Like the people described in Matthew 4:16, a lot of people today are in a state of spiritual darkness. They are lost. Others find themselves in dark and foreboding circumstances. They are scared. Maybe you can identify.
If so, listen up because there’s good news! As Mike Young reminded the men at our monthly breakfast last Saturday, “The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned” (Matt. 4:16). This verse is talking about Jesus – the Light of the world. When Jesus comes in, darkness leaves!
There are billions of people today sitting in spiritual darkness. Many have never received an adequate presentation of the gospel. They need light. This is why we dedicate an entire month to missions. I encourage you to attend each service and catch the spirit of world missions. I especially want to invite you to the Missions Café on Friday, February 22nd. This beautiful evening will include a special mission’s presentation by our Creative Arts team, along with an inspiring message from Assemblies of God missionary Ken Belbin (India).
When you stop and think about it from eternity’s perspective, there is nothing more important than reaching the world for Jesus Christ. Most people today are in darkness. If something isn’t done, they will spend eternity in darkness. Come on River of Life! Let’s turn on the light!
