The Untouchables!

So here we are posing for our church directory which is being finished as we speak. We took this picture back in October!!!!!
As we look back on 6 months, there have been alot of changes. The small country church is very different from the big city church but God is in love with everyone!!!! He needs different people for different jobs. I've learned that a NY boy does not need to know the area and the people (in's and out's of an area) to minister there. He needs the power of the Holy Spirit! It is not about what we know and can do, it is about the Spirit of the living God working inside the individuals. Just as I asked God 'How can a NY city boy minister in Michigan, I asked the same question of God...How can I minister in a rural setting were almost everyone told me not to go." The reason was very clear but I did not understand it fully.
So How can I minister in a small rural setting of NJ.
You see my calling is still the same! It never changed!
Look at Matt 10 which says:
"Don't begin by traveling to some far-off place to convert unbelievers. And don't try to be dramatic by tackling some public enemy. Go to the lost, [who are the lost? Anyone who doesn’t know Jesus and live for him].. confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. TOUCH THE UNTOUCHABLES, kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously." (The Message)
Wherever I am, I am to go to the LOST! the Untouchable! (THEY ARE EVERYWHERE) I have been given much and much is required!
God’s love is for EVERYONE – no one is a LOST cause. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish (die) but have eternal life” John 3:16
Lets start by touching the untouchable like Jesus did! Lets finish the job and go home!
