Working Together to Further His Kingdom
2016 has been an incredible year of spiritual growth for men and women in countries around the world. It is amazing to hear how God has transformed lives, relationships, communities, and cities. Biblical teachings paired with business materials, literacy lesson plans, and more are helping people not only learn about God, but how they can improve their personal well-being, and embrace their spiritual gifts.
We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
Romans 12:6-8, NIV
Romans 12:6 is one of many verses that we turn back to time and time again. We have all been created to help establish the Kingdom of Heaven, and that requires our unique talents and gifts. Whether it be in prophesying, teaching, serving, leading, encouraging or giving, God is using our gifts to help others find their identity in Christ and pursue a life with Him. Our goal is to embrace, harness and grow those skills so that people can act within their strengths and talents and help transform their communities.
In addition to providing translated Bibles, local champions are given the tools and resources to teach the scriptures, lead Bible groups and establish churches so that there can be a place for learning about and praising God. How incredible is it to have a community of believers teach others and share God’s love and forgiveness!
In 2017, we aim to continue to equip believers of Christ with all they need to develop and grow their gifting. Incredible things are happening in God’s Kingdom and we cannot wait to see how God will move in people’s lives this year.
