An Unlikely Choice (Judges 6; Acts 10)

“To him all the prophets the bear witness that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name,”  Acts 10:43

“Please, Lord, how can I save Israel?  Behold, my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.”  Judges 6:15

This morning, as you awake, I find myself in a foreign field of service.  I cannot but identify with Gideon. “How could God possibly use someone like me?”  All the need that surrounds us in each of our particular environments is overwhelming. I find myself crying out to God, “What can I really do?”

Certainly this had to be the cry of Gideon and maybe your cry today?  Hear the response of God, “But I will be with you…”  Brothers and sisters, this is the x factor before us.

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is both our life (John 15:1-5) and our love (John 15:9-17).  As our love we seek to make him known to every man by the way we live and by the truth we speak. As our life we know Him to be the power that causes dead men to come to life.  The gospel is for every man.

Every man who has the gospel is a man who is living a life that is able to overcome all the darts of the enemy!!!  

Please pray for our team as we fight the good fight of faith with the understanding that God is with us.
