Lift up Jesus!
Why "Lift Up Jesus"?
Because Jesus said, "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the winderness,
even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have eternal life." -- John 3:14-15
"And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all people to Myself." -- John 12:3
What does that mean to me?
It was in His being lifted up -- that is, the living God being crucified on a
cross in public humiliation -- that He demonstrated His love for His
enemies. That's anyone who opposes Him.
He died both to save us and to send us a helper, the Holy Spirit, so He
could change us and make us more like Him.
That's pretty amazing. A story worth telling, in whatever ways we can find.
So how does this "Lift Up Jesus Ministries"
propose to do that?
In any way God's Holy Spirit enables us: Steve, through his gift of
preaching through songs; Marcia, through her gifts of faith and prophecy.
As individuals and as a couple, we seek to testify to how GOd does what
He says He'll do.
Feel free to invite one or both of us to minister with you, or to fill in when
someone is absent. Though our own resources are limited, we are willing
to go wherever God leads and enables us with His resources.
As this ministry grows, and as this website builds to support it, we pray
that we can minister to you with the same Holy Spirit who ministers to us.
Through our words and deeds, we -- and all believers -- can never go
wrong by lifting up the name of Jesus, our banner of deliverance and of
reconciliation with God.
He has promised this, and He does not disappoint.
