"Jesus answered and said unto her, ‘If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of Him, and He would have given thee living water.'" – John 4:10
Dear Friend in Christ,
What a spectacular promise the Lord makes in this Scripture! A cup of clean water offered unconditionally can bring eternal life! Sometimes Christians think that it is only big gifts like multiple buildings or millions of dollars that God blesses and multiplies. But the Word of God clearly states that He can open a heart that is hard and void of hope with a simple cup of water.
When a pastor in India can offer non-believing villagers clean water, a door is opened to their hearts. A cup of water becomes an opportunity to share the love of Christ. Over time a friendship grows and curiosity stirs up questions that allow the pastor to share the truth about a loving God. If not for the gift of clean water, most non-believing villagers would never step foot on church property. Jesus modeled how a simple cup of water could bring a Samaritan woman and an entire village face to face with the Messiah!
Fifty dollars ($50) purchases one filter that will clean 1,000,000 gallons of water! Please consider partnering with me to put one water filter a day into our churches this year! We have over 49,000 churches and we are stepping out in faith and believing for 365 filters for 365 churches in 2014.
Will you partner with us to meet this goal by December 31, 2014?
This goal is not only to provide clean water for the physical body, although this is extremely important. It is also about giving every pastor the opportunity to dialogue with non-believers about the living water, Jesus Christ.
"But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life" (John 4:14).
Is the Lord speaking to your heart about this need today? My prayer is that you will answer without hesitation! May God pour out His blessings on this project so that all of us see miraculous provision for every church!
"Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ" (Philippians 1:6).
Thank you for your prayers and for partnering with us to raise One Million Orphan Leaders Worldwide!
