I can acknowledge that Jesus is the Savior, Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, Healer and the Soon-Coming King, but everything changes when He becomes my Savior, my Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, my Healer and my King.

I serve in a context where there is often great resistance to the message of the gospel. However, the gospel of Jesus Christ is not only a message I preach, it also is a new reality of fellowship with God that has transformed my life and continues to do so day after day.

I cannot stop proclaiming what I have heard, what I have seen, what I have looked at and touched (1 John 1:1-3). His life has come to mine—this is truly Good News! Time and time again I have seen the Lord, heard from Him and then been placed by Him in contact with someone else who needs to see and hear exactly what I have just witnessed.

Daily living in the fullness of the whole gospel, we share His life with others, giving what we have received.

Prayer + Reflection

  • Lord, in the areas of life where I have not yet experienced you as my Savior, Healer, Baptizer with the Holy Spirit and King, come.
  • I want to preach Your whole gospel with my whole life. Let Your life be revealed in and through mine.
  • Open the eyes and ears of those to whom You have sent me, that they too may have fellowship with us and with You.
