Dear <<First Name>>,
When Jesus sent out his disciples to proclaim the kingdom of God, he did so with granted power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases. He also instructed them to take nothing else, because His power and authority were all they needed. How is he equipping us to proclaim the kingdom of God in this day and age? What would be the thing that we need to proclaim the kingdom of God that requires nothing else? I shared with you in the last newsletter (no.36) about a boy name Siyamthanda. He was 5 and was a very violent boy with an abusive mother. A week after we returned the "I'm Precious to Jesus" bracelet to him from his mother, he was a changed boy. He was gentle and calm. He interacted with his friends kindly. That was what God did for him through love. As Jesus equipped his disciples with His power and authority to do such miracles, he granted Siymathanda some of the fruits of the spirit. Do we need anything else to proclaim the kingdom of God in this day and age other than the true fruits of the spirit? We live in such a depraved world and if someone truly understand the fruits of the spirit and has love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, it would be an absolute wonder. He has equipped us with the wondrous things that we need to win this world over to Christ. Now, shall we?
