When I fell in love with the woman who was to become my wife, I wanted to tell everyone! Have you experienced that feeling – not being able to keep quiet because you were so excited about something?
It’s funny, though, how we can get so tongue-tied when it comes to talking about our greatest love, Jesus Christ. All He has done for us – rescued us from a life of sin, immeasurable loneliness and eternal separation from Him – yet we talk on and on about the weather or a favorite TV show, but never mention Him.
I don’t say that to make you feel guilty. Let’s face it, we’re all human and God knows that we are filled with human weaknesses. That’s why He pours out His grace! And that’s why I am so excited that God called me into ministry – because Life Without Limbs resources have become effective ways for even the most timid person to share the Gospel.
Your faithful support is helping spread the Good News of Jesus through my preaching, but also through the videos people watch online or the materials they buy or receive as a gift. This month, your gift of $40, $60 or $100 as God leads you will strengthen our ministry as we proclaim the Good News that Jesus is sufficient for every struggle.
Your support makes it possible for God’s message of salvation be shared around the world through the opportunities He provides us to share the message of salvation. Without your prayers and generosity, we would have fewer opportunities to share the message of Jesus. God is using you and me together to tell the world that He is the only way to true peace, forgiveness and unstoppable love.
Kathy was very depressed after losing her legs in a car accident. She even attempted suicide. But after she discovered my story she sent us an email telling how God totally transformed her.
“I learned my legs weren’t mine to keep, and to not be ashamed of how God has allowed me to live without legs. It motivated me to live and go on with my life. So now I live my life to the fullest.”
I am so blessed. Sometimes people look at me with shock when I say that. After all, how can a guy with no arms or legs say he is blessed? But I really am, because God gave me a passion for telling my story and letting Him use it to bring people to Him – and He gave you a passion to help make that possible by giving so generously!
You may not think you have a dramatic story. You may feel your testimony of how God reached down and found you is only “average.” But there is no “average” when it comes to becoming a child of God. Every one of us was brought from death into life.
Scripture tells us, “Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples” (Psalm 96:3, NIV). So it’s really not about our story – we’re called to tell His story!
And that story is so powerful! In March, more than 20,000 people listened as I shared my story of God’s amazing love and power at The Rock in Anaheim, CA. For 3,682 of them, that was the story that brought them to faith in Jesus. Not my story – but God using my story to show people that He is the way to peace and a love that is truly indescribable.
My prayer for you each day is that you will be so filled with love for Him that you will not be able to contain it. People will look at you and see Christ … they will hear what you say and be overwhelmed by the words Christ wants them to hear.
And as you pray for me and the Life Without Limbs ministry and give as you are led, please ask God to continue to use me to “declare His glory among the nations” so more people like Kathy can experience real life as children of our living Savior.
In Him, Through Him, For Him,
P.S. In God’s family, there are no favorites – we’ve all been given the power to be His witnesses (Acts 1:8). Thank you for helping spread the message of Christ at home and to the ends of the earth by sending your gift today to Life Without Limbs. You are a blessing to me!
