Being Part of God’s Answer
JOHN SUMMERVILLE, TWR – GUEST BLOGGER. Imagine someone getting ready for bed and casually turning on his radio to keep him company and hearing about Jesus for the very first time. That person is so intrigued that he begins listening every night. Soon he accepts Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior. The excitement bubbles inside of him and he begins to tell his friends to listen too. In just a little while three of his friends are listening, and in the morning when they see each other they discuss what they’ve heard.
The “buzz” about this little radio group continues to grow and their numbers increase from four to six. Then it grows again to 10 and the group decides that they need a bible and should start a formal study group.
Now when the group gets to be 12 members with others asking if they can join, someone in the group suggests that they ought to start a church. They choose one person to lead this effort. They choose one person to be their pastor.
They choose you.
But the only thing you know about the bible is what you’ve heard on the radio. And you only began listening to it because your friend asked you to just 3 months ago.
Imagine how important it would be for you to receive TWR’s China Radio Church Kit! How valuable would the hard back study bible with its notes, references, and maps be to you and your ability to share spiritual truths with your new congregation of enthusiastic believers? How crucial would the text books that correspond with the programs heard over TWR become in giving you solid theology and answers to so many of their questions?
Now imagine someone handing you those resources. The smile on her face reassures you that despite being unprepared as a pastor, she is part of God’s answer in supplying you with everything you need to lead your congregation.
Let’s change the scenario. Suppose you are that someone who is able to hand valuable teaching resources to a house church pastor? Your smile reassures that new pastor that you are giving him these materials for his spiritual growth and you are one of many who are standing behind him in prayer. Be a part of something big.
