"Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me."  Isaiah 6:8

Our Burden

Jesus said, "He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." At the feast of Tabernacles, the Jews would take a golden pitcher and fill it with water from the pool of Siloam. They would bring this pitcher to the Temple and pour the water into a silver basin at the altar so that the water would overflow representing both the abundance of rain for the harvest and the Spirit of God amongst the nation.
Water is a necessary element for physical life and the Holy Spirit is necessary for spiritual life. In Matthew 9:38, Jesus called for more laborers to work His harvest. It is no secret that our country is in a spiritual drought. While there are faithful Christians in our country flowing with living water, there are many more souls thirsting in a barren land. It is our responsibility as servants of God to bring the life giving Water to the harvest. In Acts 1:8, Jesus said, "But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
As Christians, we have the responsibility to witness in the power of the Holy Spirit. We are fully equipped, yet still fail to go even to our own back yard. Paul said in Romans 10:14, "How shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?"
This world is full of thirsting souls waiting to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Lord has given us a burden for those souls in the Southwest. Please pray that God will use us to share the Gospel in the Southwest. We desire to be faithful in accomplishing that which God has called us to do. Please pray and consider the part God might have you to take in this great need.
