Last Wednesday at MOA was awesome! During our worship at the clinic we sang 'Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God. Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine.' [Reckless Love by Cory Asbury] At the MOA Transit Center, I prayed to be led by the Holy Spirit to my 'lost sheep'. I opened my eyes as a young woman walked past, literally glowing. She suddenly stopped then turned around. Our eyes locked. Perhaps refined by our seven-day fast, my Spirit knew. Amber had been expelled from Park Avenue Center due to methamphetamine relapse. She was initially raped at thirteen then sold to a heroin dealer at sixteen – the details too horrific to describe here. Self-inflicted scars enveloped her forearms but her deepest wounds were internal. Amber's bus never arrived and she was unable to reach her father. I prayed to be led by the Holy Spirit then drove Amber to their planned rendezvous restaurant during which I shared the full Gospel Message then my personal testimony. BOOM! The Holy Spirit reigned down upon us. Amber wept as I spoke True Identity unto her life. Although unable to surrender to Christ, her words 'I am so much closer' were genuine as is her desire to attend Church with my family this Sunday. I met her father then began to drive home. The restaurant cashier suddenly chased me down – Leon pleaded 'Can I come to your Church too?' Amen.
Lk 15:3-7 Then Jesus told them this parable: 'Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn't he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.' I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.'
Beloved, Love Twin Cities 'is an opportunity for the church to experience the book of Acts and to grow in hunger to live a lifestyle of intimacy and mission.'
Last Friday at the Minneapolis Jail was awesome! I encountered a student named Lei on the Blue Line train downtown. She was raised Buddhist in China while I was raised Roman Catholic here. We both obtained psychology degrees at the University of Minnesota during which she became Agnostic while I became Atheist. I shared my testimony then handed her the Father's Love Letter as I departed. I prayed with Stan at the Jail then coerced my brother back inside before I boarded the Green Line train to Mariucci Arena to attend my son's graduation ceremony. There sat Lei. She smiled then handed me her number to learn more about Jesus.
Back inside the Jail, Stan shared 'Armando will be leaving for a two-year sentence on Monday but has a strong desire to be used by God to help others. Armando's prayer request was for his wife Amber and their five children. Amber suffers from severe anxiety that keeps her from going out in public. Even though she needs help, it is unlikely that she will go out and seek what she needs. We prayed for Amber to be healed by Jesus of her anxiety and to gain courage.' We then shared further resources too. In Christ, Jason.
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.
