As we begin to meet as a church in Morrisville in obedience to the vision given by God and after several months of prayer and waiting on the Lord, I am excited to launch this mission in this city of North Carolina. As we lift up our spiritual eyes we can see that the field is already white for harvest – people are hungry for the word, longing to have fellowship and also to experience God in their daily walk. I am convinced that the cities around Raleigh needs dedicated believers (disciples) to train, equip, and empower Spirit filled saints of God to take an active role in reaching the unreached.
We at Immanuel Assembly pray and seek God's guidance in fulfilling this vision as we are chosen by God Himself with a purpose and carried us thus far for such a time as this. Some of you may say, I can be a disciple but I am not called to make disciples and you may even doubt your call but I want to remind you that He has chosen you with a purpose and mission (Matt 28:19, 20;Acts 1:8)
When Moses received the call for the task, he doubted his abilities and pleaded with God to send someone else but eventually by faith Moses did what he was called to do. Millions of God’s people were delivered from bondage due to Moses’ obedience to the voice of the Lord. The same God has heard the cry of the people around us and is asking you to come out of your comfort zones and lead them out of the bondages of sin, to the promised land of healing, restoration, blessing and eternal life.
Can we say as Paul writes to Timothy "And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry". Beloved, the truth is that Christ Jesus counts you and me trustworthy. He trusts us to be faithful and that is one of the reasons He has chosen us. Can we be obedient to His call?
There are tough times, difficult situations, greater challenges before us, but when you hear the voice as it says in “Isaiah 6:8” Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?".....If not you, then who? If not now, when? If you are available to him He will strengthen you to overcome every situation that you are facing. “He is Immanuel” and you will see His glory and power being manifested. Therefore,dear friends we look forward to see you all who happen to read this message to join with us for fellowship, corporate worship, spiritual growth and to be obedient to His great commission to win souls for His kingdom.
