When you build anything, the foundation is critically important, and a good foundation requires good stones. You are an essential stone in the foundational strength of globalLead. As you support the ministry of globalLead, you can be assured we will always stand upon the strong foundation, Jesus Christ, in all that we say and do. Jesus Himself used the picture of building upon a rock in Matthew 7:24-27:
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
Both men heard the words of Christ, and both men were thrust into the midst of a storm–rain fell, floods came, and winds blew and beat. Their only difference was where their foundation had been laid, and it made all the difference.
We are sure that “in this world, [we] will have tribulation,” but those who hold fast to Christ have also been promised the presence of the One who overcame the world. What a lavish gift! The rest of the world lacks it and still faces suffering, and we, as believers, face suffering and often forget it.
Together, we get to remind leaders, globally, about the truths of Christ–encouraging them to dwell on these words and inviting them to endure their tribulations and sorrows while having eyes for eternity and remembering the King is in control.
He is sovereign at the start of it.
He is the Sustainer in the midst of it.
He is the Healer at the end of it.
And He is the only sempiternal Foundation.
To God be the glory!
For these reasons (and many more), we rely upon only His wisdom and character as the foundation of our ministry and lives. Thanks for being a part of what God is doing across the world in the lives of ministers of the Gospel. We love doing this together.
