Create in Me a New Heart

Literally this past weekend, a renewed passion for sending out the simple message of God's love that is so strikingly displayed in the sacrifice of His Son to rescue us from sin and Hell -- the Gospel -- is growing in me, and it is filling me with excitement and with joy -- joy at the truth of what Bruce observed one time when he said that the Lord is "perfecting our faith" through the making of JOHN.

Reading your prayers in Prayer Chain #3 I cannot help but be blessed. I cannot help but feel in my bones that JOHN is way beyond "beyond" in scope and scale -- of what God is doing and is planning to do.

Not only will the film itself be used by the Holy Spirit to bring countless many to Jesus, this process of raising the funds, and believing God for JOHN to come... it is a journey in faith that all of us are taking. It is the Lord perfecting the faith of His children.

So, dear saints! Let us "not grow weary in doing good!"

For God honors the labor of our hands. He honors every phone call we make; every email we send out; every postcard we write. And every sacrificial Dollar, Rand, Won, Euro, Pound, or Kuna (and etc.) that is given for this project we call THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN - the Lord sees.

The Lord sees. What more could we need or ask for -- than the fact that our Jesus sees us. HE SEES US!

PRAISE to HIS NAME!

Lord, we bow down to you and worship you -the Great I AM. We know that you have a Plan and a Purpose and we ask you to open doors in order for the Gospel of John to be produced and then distributed amongst the nations. We call on the Name of our Redeemer Jesus to hear our voices and answer in miraculous ways.

This morning,my neighbour asked me to help free an exotic bird ,trapped in her living room,frantically thrusting itself against the glass.
I took hold of it and let it go out the door.
This speaks to me...it's like us...struggling,flapping,seeing freedom but too panicked to rest and calm ourselves enough to find the open door..and along comes Jesus,and with big,gentle,loving Hands...folds them around us,and peacefully,tenderly,takes to the open door!!!What a picture!

The "new heart" realises,that in Heaven...everything is better....everything that was bad ..is gone ....there is one thing ...that we can do on earth,that we will not be able to do in Heaven....there will be no more chances.....no more opportunities...no more wishing we had seized the moment.....
That one thing is..
Sharing Jesus to the lost!!!

Seen the world and many places...
Worn out shoes and worn out faces....
I need You.....
felt the the surge of wild abandon...
need a hand to put my hand in ...YOU it's You....
Been lost,alone in empty spaces...longing for a cool
oasis...
You...it's You
Seen lonely sun on the horizon
Wonder when my star is risin'
You it's You
hoping for a new tomorrow
Love from You i now will borrow
You It's You
I will put my hand in Yours
Hope and Love in me now soars...
You It's You
Only You.
Thank You Jesus for the Gift of Love!!!!!

I heard you speak on WIHS today in Connecticut. I hope the Lord helps you complete your project on the Book of John Movie. We as Christians need to be more assertive in our mission of getting the Word out to those lost and dying souls that are so pleniful in these last and evil days. Also our young people are not hearing the Gospel as they should. Many of them do not believe in God. Newsweek ran an article recently depicted this very issue. So Christians get out there and make a positive difference.
