Dear Messengers:

Last Wednesday at MOA was awesome!  An excerpt from late 2016 'Bob had literally lived on a bench at the MOA Transit Center for many, many years.  Bob will move to more permanent housing in several weeks.  Tonight, Bob was blessed to absent from that Transit Center bench.  A twenty-three year old homeless, pregnant girl named Jessica was sitting there instead.  The Holy Spirit descended upon our prayer and brought conviction upon both our hearts.  Jessica agreed to join me at Church next Sunday.  Beloved, I need your help.  Examine your heart and then partner with us to live out the Book of Acts!'  Jessica and Jacoby [currently eight months old] have attended Church with my family several times.  Their temporary shelter evaporated one week ago.  Then she seriously injured her back having fallen upon the ice.  I pray for Jessica and her son each day but this morning I will adjust her back [pro bono] while a Ministry friend attempts to secure their permanent shelter.  To repeat my 2016 plea 'Beloved, I need your help.  Examine your heart and then partner with us to live out the Book of Acts!'

2 Cor 1:3-5 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.  For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.

Eph 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Jas 2:14-19 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?  Can such faith save them?  Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food.  If one of you says to them, 'Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?  In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.  But someone will say, 'You have faith; I have deeds.'  Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.  You believe that there is one God.  Good!  Even the demons believe that – and shudder.

Last Friday at the Minneapolis Jail was awesome!  We encountered Cain, a troubled young man who evoked the Biblical namesake.  We dissected The Parable of the Lost Sheep.  Jesus Christ pursues us even when we wander away to chase our carnal desires.  Cain described horrific abuses as a child, death and despair – a family literally ripped apart by heroin.  I shared the full Gospel Message, emphasizing our redemption through Jesus Christ.  I asked 'Cain, what would prevent you from surrendering your life to Christ right now?'  He cried out 'I am not ready!'  2 Samuel 12 pierced my heart.  I declared 'Cain, you are the lost sheep!  God sent us to find you and to carry you home!'  BOOM!  The Holy Spirit reigned down upon us.  Cain staggered but shouted 'I believe in God but I am scared to surrender!'  I shared the Jesus Christ / Lift Raft Analogy and handed my brother the Father's Love Letter to read privately.  Please pray.  In Christ, Jason.

2 Sam 12:4-7 Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man refrained from taking one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare a meal for the traveler who had come to him.  Instead, he took the ewe lamb that belonged to the poor man and prepared it for the one who had come to him.  David burned with anger against the man and said to Nathan, 'As surely as the Lord lives, the man who did this must die!  He must pay for that lamb four times over, because he did such a thing and had no pity.'  Then Nathan said to David, 'You are the man!'

Jn 12:24-26 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed.  But if it dies, it produces many seeds.  Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.  Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be.  My Father will honor the one who serves me.

Our children are dying.  I need your help to share Christ with the lost.

Dt 24:16 Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin.
