We are excited in these days to be part of God’s big design for expansion and pioneering into new territory. This we do in partnership.
As All Nations Church, this is the second year of ‘God Touching the nation’, an initiative to touch the nation of Namibia. God wants us to reach more people this year and we are embarking on a similar strategy with 10 towns being impacted with His unique touch in our wonderful country. There is a great hunger for God to move and for fresh vision to be given to church leaders and their congregations and Holy Spirit demonstration.
God partners with the church to fulfil His plan: Ephesians 3:10-11 says “His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
The five-fold ministry gifts in Ephesians 4:12-14 partner with the local church: “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up. until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
Say ‘yes’ to partnership because obedience brings liberty: Jesus said to Peter in Luke 5, “Let down your net and Peter said, ‘Master we have toiled all night and caught nothing, nevertheless at your word, I will let down the net”. Obedience yielded the reward of a great number of fish. The reward of partnership did not stop there, Jesus said “From now on you will catch men”.
Jesus has the faith that what He has told us to do will result in great reward, the reward of obedience to partnership with Him and fruit that will remain.
