Mike Schrage, Executive Director
I read Amos 5:21–24 in The Message version recently. Actually, I read it several times. The harsh, convicting message from the Lord caught my attention.
“I can’t stand your religious meetings. I’m fed up with your conferences and conventions. I want nothing to do with your religion projects, your pretentious slogans and goals. I’m sick of your fundraising schemes, your public relations and image making. I’ve had all I can take of your noisy ego-music. When was the last time you sang to me? Do you know what I want? I want justice—oceans of it. I want fairness—rivers of it. That’s what I want. That’s all I want.”
Would you pray that the members of GNPI’s global network will be humble and pray as much as we plan? You have given us a charge and mandate to accelerate global evangelism.
We don’t want to get hung up on projects, goals, or anything we can do in and of ourselves. We need God’s presence and power to move the hearts of men and women closer to their Creator.
That’s your desire. It’s our desire. It’s what God wants, too!
