God Gives Us the Tools

February conjures up all kinds of excitement and emotions for most of us.   Avid football fans anticipate the biggest game of all year, The Super Bowl, while sweethearts think on things of the heart, Valentine’s Day.  Then there are some of us who see February as early enough in the life game, that we still have plenty of time to do all the things we resolved to do a month ago!

These days our resolve seems to focus around the wonderful opportunity God has allowed HNA.  Because of our partnership with SWBTS, we have 8 Churches across the USA who have chosen to do a Harvest Project during RTN 2019.  These 8 churches chose the HNA Tract, knowing exactly what they were choosing to do. This is a big thing for Harvest North America!  

HNA had great results during RTN 2018 even though many of the churches who chose HNA didn’t really know what it meant. But God was setting the stage for our work to be the added element to SWBTS as they continue taking the Gospel to communities across the USA.  When you get a few minutes, look at the SBC Life magazine website.  If you don’t have internet access, let me know and I will try to get you a copy.  This article features a successful RTN/HNA project during the 2018 Revive This Nation effort.  We were so excited yet humbled by all that God did through this project and it says to all of us that it is a viable work.  

We will have our Training Simulcast on Monday February 11, 2019 from 3:00 – 5:45 PM.  Please be in prayer for me and Dan Welsh as we equip the RTN Preachers and the 8 Churches who will participate in the project.  Our strength and ability come from your prayers as you lift us up!  

Then the responsibility of such a great task seems to take over my thoughts and I sometimes stop and ask the Father, “Can we get it all done?”  The answer is in Mark 10:27 “…With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”    You see God has given HNA a tremendous responsibility and for each person He has chosen to be a part of this work, He has uniquely equipped.  In 1 Thessalonians 1:5 “For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance..”, we find that He has given us all the tools to accomplish the task of sharing Jesus.  He has chosen some of us to give, some to go and all of us to pray.  He has given us all the tools to get it done.  

In this special month of hearts and love, let’s not forget the one who loved us so unconditionally that He gave His life so that we could become the “…children of God…” 1 John 3:1.   Let’s continue in His love by sharing The Good News all across our homeland, beginning with our friends and family members who are without Christ.  

Thank you for your steadfast partnership in the Gospel.  

In Christ,
Doyle and Carolyn
