Parable of the Talents

Dear beloved:  pics above, left, praying for pastors at Westlands Church in Nairobi; right, praying for students at kesha
Matthew 25:14 For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. v27 So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. v28 Therefore, take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. v28 For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance, but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.  v30 And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
In the strictest sense, this parable is speaking of money {talents}, but in a broader context it is speaking of your faith.  We have all been given a mustard seed of faith, the question for each of us is this: What are we doing with the faith God has given us?  Are you using your faith to move the kingdom of God forward?  If not, God will take it from you and give it to those who are on the move. What you do with your money is an expression of your faith.  I had the opportunity over the weekend to see the kingdom move forward in two very powerful services in Nairobi.  First, the all night kesha Friday night, where over 100 university students came together to cry out for Kenya. Then at a great church in Westlands on Sunday morning, where over 200 belivers came together to worship and hear the word of the Lord. God is on the move and opening doors for Gather the Outcasts in Africa.  Thank you for your prayers and support.
