Jesus Heart

Christ calls us to go above and beyond the ordinary. In Matthew 5:41 Jesus says, ‘And whoever would compel you to go a mile, go with him two’. Locals understood the request to ‘go a mile’ as the means by which Roman oppressors would requisition local goods and labour – by force. So, here, Jesus instruction to also go an extra mile would have shocked them. But, this is typical of Jesus to call into question what is a normal response, and to show a different way, one that is above and beyond the human norm, and one that is representative of Christ’s sacrificial way. “Going the extra mile” today commonly means to do more than is needed.

 

He moves our hearts to a vision beyond ourselves to see His Kingdom come: to see people saved and added to His family; to see the Nations reached for Christ; and to see His church grow as a powerful witness of His majesty in our local area.

The Thessalonian Example

A passion to bless the nations

Paul in his letter to the Corinthian Church holds up the Macedonian churches as a wonderful example of sacrificial love and giving. ‘Out of their most severe trial., their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability  (2 Cor. 8:2-3).

God calls us to serve the nations, and we are strongly involved in helping churches, ministries, Children’s home and other needs. Currently we are involved serving people in Vanuatu, Sri -Lanka, India, Philippines, Middle East, and Australia.
