Ask for Help…

What a tragedy that we should hesitate to ask believers for money and allow our ministry to fall short of its potential — allow people who need help to be missed instead, for lack of funding. We need to get over our reluctance, over our pride, over our fear — whatever is holding us back from asking for help — because the cause is hugely important, and the stakes are incredibly high.

We have a God who gave His only Son to die for us; this should be incentive for us to ask for help. Jesus went to such extremes because hell is real and eternity is forever. Forgiveness is available because Jesus cast off every possible reservation, hesitation, objection, obstacle, and argument to the contrary and went to the cross. And there are a lot of people who still have never heard this Good News. Still have never owned a Bible. Still have never witnessed the story of Christ. Still have never encountered God’s love in a personal way. Still have never known the joy of growing close to God as a disciple of Jesus.
