The Lord is calling for servant lovers who will call in the outcasts, who will go into the dark corners of the world and compel them to come home. And they will come. Who will go and leave their life of comfort and call in the broken? Who will go and be a learner? Who will go among those who are mourning and lay their life down for Jesus? The Lord wants His house to be full. It is time for us to go to the poor, to the broken, to the homeless, to the dying, and to the lonely and call them in. Thousands and thousands of “sent out ones” need to go out to the darkest places, to the poorest places, to the forgotten places, because the wedding feast is about to begin.– Heidi Baker
Here am I, Lord…send me.
Poverty is not the world’s greatest problem. Our greatest problem is the division in our relationship with God, which is caused by sin. Christ lived on earth and died to erase that barrier, and longs for us to come back into fellowship withGod–the fellowship we were created for. People with money often face a poverty of a different kind: poverty of spirit. Insecurity. Depression. Addiction. Self centeredness and pride.
Jesus is calling. And He’s calling us to join Him in calling. Are we answering both calls?
