The Hundredfold Blessing
Dear beloved: Two scenes from the tree planting crews at the Living Water Orphanage near Mumias, Kenya.
Mark 10:29 So Jesus anwered and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields, for My sake and the gospel's, v30 who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time-houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions-and in the age to come, eternal life. v31 But many who are first will be last, and the last first." Beloved, the greatest blessings on the earth come when we submit to serving others, leaving those things and people that we are attached to and go to serve for the gospel's sake. This is how we recieve our crowns, the hundredfold blessing in this life and in the age to come.
Would you consider going to Kenya for a two week mission to help out at the Living Water Orphanage, where we will be building a home for fifty orphan children? You do not need construction skills or to be in great condition, just a willing heart to go. That is what Jesus is looking for, that you go from the head of the line of your own desires, and join the line to serve the less fortunate. Maybe if you can't go, you would consider supporting the project or sending the team with your financial support.
2 Corinthians 9:10 "Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness." May God bless you as you pray. In Christ, Jim Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654 501(c)3 Paypal at www.gathertheoutcasts.com or www.jimrowh.blogspot.com email: email@example.com
