|SALVATION IN THE SUPERMARKET!
Since the beginning of Celebrando Navidad (is this #4 or 5, I can't remember?), we have purchased the
grocery supplies to be used in Rio Bravo, Mexico. ... in Rio Bravo, Mexico. Nathan had found a HUGE
supermarket with a friendly manager, who we look forward to seeing every year. Yesterday Nathan and
Arturo made the visit again but this time the manager started telling him that he had seen the movie...
God's Not Dead and was overwhelmed by it. Mr. Manager then asked N and A about 'what is it you do?,'
they looked at each other and knew... this was it! They both shared about Jesus and the WAY to heaven
and that he could have that assurance today. He prayed to receive Christ! 5 years they had been laying
out a path and not realizing it, all for this day! He even wants to drop by Celebrando to see the events.
|WHAT IT MEANS TO BE LOST
by Rick Warren
“The Son of Man came to find lost people and save them.” Luke 19:10
If you don’t understand the purpose of Christmas, you might as well skip the
Christmas lights and decorations this year. You might as well forget about buying
Christmas presents. You might as well forget Christmas dinner.
If you don’t know why we celebrate Christmas, all the
festivities are pointless.
To find the purpose of Christmas, you have to fast forward beyond the manger,
the Wise Men, and the shepherds. Jesus told us the reason he came to Earth on
the first Christmas: “The Son of Man came to find lost people and save them”
(Luke 19:10 NCV).
Quite simply, Jesus came because people are lost without God. To be spiritually
lost means to be separated from God, disconnected, and out of whack. Without
Jesus, everybody in the world is lost — no matter how much power, wealth, or
fame they have.
And our lostness has immense ramifications on our lives. To know why Jesus came
to Earth, we must understand what it means to be lost. Without God, we’ve lost:
•Our direction. We’re bound to have little understanding of where we should go
and what we should do in this life.
•His protection. We’re on our own when we’re not under the Lord’s protection.
That’s a huge reason many people are stressed out. They’re trying to live under
their own care and protection instead of God’s.
•Our potential. We’ll never know half the gifts and talents we have if we’re not in
a relationship with him.
•Our happiness. We can have all the money and power in the world, but without
God we will never have true joy.
•Our home in Heaven. God allows us to rebel while we’re here on Earth, but there’
s no rebellion in Heaven.
But no one who is lost has lost one ounce of value to God. Even if you don’t have a
relationship with him, you have immense value to God. Lostness implies value.
Whatever someone is willing to spend to recover something that’s lost shows how
valuable that item is.
In the most famous verse in the Bible, Jesus clearly explains our value: “God loved
the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in
him may not be lost, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
The Good News is God loved us so much he sent his Son to Earth on the first
Christmas to seek and save us. That’s a reason to celebrate!

|For several years our friends at Trinity Baptist Church in
Bartlesville, OK have made it possible for us to distribute
THOUSANDS of the printed books of John and Romans, to
Mexico and Nicaragua! They work in cooperation with
Midwest Seedline ministry. THANK YOU to those who make
Midwest Seedline is a ministry that helps to provide a means
for the local church to have hands on involvement in the
mission field - while staying stateside! This is accomplished
by bringing the printed page to a local church, along with all
the necessary equipment to complete the task of making a
Bible. The local church body works together in collating it,
folding the covers, put the printed Scripture in the cover,
stapling it, and cutting the book to the final size. Lastly, the
Bibles are boxed for shipping to the field for the missionary
to share them.
This month they included a bit about our ministry (with
pictures) - check out this link...
