A sense of appreciation for blessings and gifts received, accompanied by the good will from the benefactor and a passion to pay it forward. This is Medical Ministry International’s definition of Thanksgiving.
The Bible begins with God, and any governing body best take heed that He is in command. The Apostle Paul urged all Christians to pray for our leaders, kings, governments, etc. as a peaceful society allows the presence and word of God to be heard clearly without distraction. Rules, Processes, and Authority are meant to separate evil and punish those who try to harm society. Satan thrives in chaos. A chaos that only can occur when others allow it to infiltrate our lives. It is only at a point where our loyalty to God and Scripture is being hampered that we must be willing to stand up and be defiant to abuse of Leadership.
What would the world look like today if you were not around? It’s a question that many people ask for a variety of reasons. Those that suffer from depression may get to the point where they have lost all perspective and think that the world would be better if they were not around. Not a chance! We are here for a very specific reason. We may not even have any idea what that reason is, but we must lean on our faith and plow ahead as God has big plans for our lives!
We had an amazing day yesterday as Medical Ministry International joined with Innovate For Jesus and the #ThankAPastor Event. Pastors and Church Leaders were thanked for four hours non-stop! The stories, lessons, etc. shared by ministry leaders from around the world not only paid tribute to some amazing people, but provided great insight for us all. This event highlighted the impact that can be made using the skill and gifts that God has given you!
