The Spirit Tells us to Encourage and Celebrate His Work

God is bringing about the good for He alone is good and His mercy endures forever. His hand moves in all places where the name of Christ is being exalted. As a result, the homeless and addicted have the Gospel preached to them and come off of the streets. Those in prison or jail have their minds transformed and renewed. People get baptized into the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Members of the Body of Christ are strengthened in churches and house fellowships as they are equipped for the work of ministry. Missionaries go out into the mission field to proclaim the Gospel where there has never before been a proclamation. 

These are just a few of the things God is doing – just as the Word says: “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written” (John 21:25). Because of this reality, we never minimize or cast off as casual what God is doing in our generation and instead encourage and celebrate it!

There is a renewed focus on unity among the Body of Christ as God draws those who have an ear to hear into a deeper understanding of what the Apostle Paul said: “One faith, one Spirit, one baptism” (Ephesians 4:5-6). Together, we can celebrate the fruit of our labor and rejoice in the works of God all around the world!  

So be encouraged, brothers and sisters, and know that you are not left alone to fulfill what God has called you to do and who He has called you to be. We celebrate, encourage, and pray for you – that you are strengthened in this hour with might by His Spirit in your inner man (Ephesians 3:16) and that you will live in the Truth that the joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10). 

Because of Calvary,

My experience with the Take the City crew was like coming into a family.  Our team was welcomed in with open arms with like-hearted believers who love Jesus and have laid down their lives to serve the broken of the city! It was an honor to come alongside them, be welcomed into their homes, share meals, and experience the transformational work that God is doing in and through them to see His Kingdom come.
