    SILVER CORD MINISTRIES

    believe in Me wont have to stay any longer in the dark. John 12:46 (The Message) Jesus came to set us free from the burdens of life! He came to lift that burden from us and carry it for us!

    Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:29 (NIV)

    Why do I men-tion these things? Because we, as Christians, are Christs disciples and are com-manded to bring this Good News to every-

    one!

    The other day, I had someone ask me if it was worth it to minister to those who might not remember the next day that I had been there. My answer was an adamant Yes! If I can relieve their burdens for that moment, I have done it unto the least of these. Matthew 25:40

    THE LEAST OF THESE... Gods Spirit is on me; Hes chosen me to preach the Message of Good News to the poor, Sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, To set the burdened and battered free, to announce, This is Gods year to act! Luke 4:18-19 (The Message) Have you ever stopped to wonder what Jesus was saying when He announced His mission that His Father had sent Him to do? Believe me when I say that He wasnt just sent to take care of physical needs! Yes, Jesus did heal many physical diseases. But, His main mission was to proclaim the Good News that He was sent to sacrifice Himself so that all humanity could experience Gods forgiveness! When Jesus said that He was sent to preach the Good News to the poor, He wasnt necessarily speaking of

    those without money. In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said,

    Blessed are the poor in spirit...If one is poor in spirit, this constitutes one who is destitute in riches in relationship to his spirit and one who is helpless or powerless to improve his spiritual situation on his own. Jesus came to give us a new spirit the Holy Spirit when we accept His gift of salvation! Jesus came to pardon all of us who were prisoners to sin.

    But Scripture has shown that all man-kind are the prisoners of sin, in order that the promised blessing, which depends on faith in Jesus Christ, may be given to those who believe. Galatians 3:22 (Weymouth Translation) Not only did Jesus physically give sight to the blind, He gives spiritual sight to those in spiritual dark-ness. I am Light that has come into the world, so that all who

    Are there nursing homes in your neighborhood or city? Consider adopting a Senior that is all alone. Regular, consistent contact is what is needed! If you need to know where to start, please contact us. We know lots of Seniors that would love to know that Jesus loves them! Be that example of His love to a Senior today! Dont forget that they are part of the world that He died for, too!
