Francis Chan called it Crazy Love. It is crazy! Imagine it…a love that surpasses knowledge. A perfect love. Many don’t understand it because all they’ve known is human love (which is broken and imperfect). Man will always let us down, but God’s love is forever. His love is unfailing. And He’s proved it…He laying down everything, even His life. We were his enemies, yet He drew us to Himself. We spat in His face, yet He pursued us. We rejected Him, yet His love remains.
Check out these lyrics from Matt Redman (You Alone Can Rescue) :
“You, oh Lord, have made a way
The great divide You heal
For when our hearts were far away
Your love went further still
Yes, your love goes further still”
Gospelink’s mission, in a nutshell is to carry this message…what we call “Gospel”- the good news of the truth of His love – to the various peoples of Africa and Asia. We want each individual, young and old to understand the love God has for them and how He has demonstrated that by sending His Son, Jesus Christ. Gospelink sponsors over 1,100 preachers on 2 continents in 12 nations, each one having an incredible testimony of how this love has transformed their lives. These men, because of His great love, serve faithfully day-in and day-out, risking everything – their comfort, their security, even their lives. Those of us serving state-side want to make their ministry as fruitful as possible, equipping them with the tools they need to effectively reach their world with the message of the Gospel. Team up with us! God is using us mightily; the Word is going out and it is NOT returning void – just as He said. Lives are being changed. People are being constantly awakened and re-awakened to the glorious truth of God’s love.
Our prayer here at Gospelink is that which Paul prayed for the church at Ephesus – that God would strengthen you by His Spirit, that you would grasp the crazy vastness of the love He has for you and stake your very lives in that love (be rooted in it). If this happens, God will flip a light on inside of you and those around you in darkness will see the light and be drawn to it. This is already happening in Africa and Asia and anywhere our preachers are – people are being drawn to the light. Help us reach them! Join the movement.
