Reveal Jesus Christ to a struggling world
James 2:14 says “What good is it my brothers if someone says I have faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food and one of you says to them, “Go in peace be warmed and well filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works is dead.
Works are the outward expression of our inward faith. To love, express joy, have peace, display patience, be kind, provide goodness, express faithfulness, be gentle and have self-control are all ways to outwardly show our inward faith. The things we say and how we say them. The things we do and how we do them. The giving of our time, talents, riches or specific possessions along with our intentions, expectations and motivations behind them all being held into account. Are we doing all we can to help those that have mountains in their lives to climb? Mountains that the friends we serve can’t necessarily move on their own.
Circle City Relief likes to think of itself as mountain movers. A lot of our friends find themselves in need of counseling, appropriate transitional housing, or detox which require some type of fee to take advantage of. A fee that looks like a mountain because they don’t have the money to pay for it. It is a mountain that keeps them from an opportunity that can change their lives forever.
Last year CCR spent 22% of the $113,000 that came in on programs and fees that helped our friends with life transformation. Whether that was to get out of an addiction or get into housing and no longer live on the streets. We would very much like to double our efforts in 2018 but can’t do that without like mind and hearted individuals like you that want to put their faith into action. We do understand that the majority of you give to your local church and we wouldn’t want to come between that. But as a parachurch ministry (501c3 organization) that exists to reveal Jesus Christ to a struggling world, we need your support to be able to support our friends who need us to stand in the gap. The gap that separates them from life changing programs.
If you commit quarterly to Mountain Movers you will change the trajectory of their lives and will in essence tell that mountain “Move” and it will move. No longer there to keep someone stuck in the same old addictions, hang ups or habits.
The only questions are...What type of faith do you have and how many mountains will you move with it?
