Bulletin 2008-04 – Alpha News

“In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those (other) kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.”  (Daniel 2:44)

“Sometimes the stories are so awful that I just sit on my bed and cry. All of my Alpha leaders were killed. Every one. Eleven of my staff have been killed in the last year. So this isn’t easy. It’s really, really difficult.”

“The guests on Alpha risk their lives just to come to the Prime Minister’s office (where some of our Alpha Courses are held), because coming is dangerous. It takes them three hours to come approximately one mile.

It takes that long to get through the all the checkpoints. But we have the most wonderful courses ever.”

Which kingdom are we called to serve?

That which will be swept away like chaff on a threshing floor in summer… or… a Kingdom not made by human hands but that which will endure forever? (Dan 2:35, 44, 45).

Praise God for our daily opportunities to serve Jesus in the way we apportion our affections, our energies, our time, our resources and our prayers. Will you be inspired by our brothers and sisters in Baghdad to connect with your workplace Christian colleagues and commit in prayer to run a business Alpha in your sphere of influence?

What Sacrifice will you make today to serve Jesus in Your Marketplace?

Your Occupation is Your Mission!
