What is my job? A good question. I’m a Youth Director at Christ the Redeemer, right? But what is my job here in Uganda? This morning we sat down as a team, with Darrie’s prompting, and read the first chapter of Colossians. We came across these words:
"Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me." Colossians 1:28-29
Here then is my job. Like the apostle Paul, I’ve been called to encourage, exhort and equip others with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Whether I’m with a group of high schoolers on a Wednesday night in Spokane studying through Ecclesiastes, or with a group of pastors in Uganda thinking through Biblical counseling within a struggling marriage, or even sitting at home with family reading through the gospel of Matthew, my job is to help men and women come to fully realize the powerful effects of King Jesus’ good news in light of eternity, and for today.
What truth! What a job! What a Savior!
Please be praying for our team that we would be able to magnify King Jesus as we share vital medical information for pregnant women, and as we share the power of the gospel to transform lives to the glory of God.
Stumbling toward Christ and His glory,
P.S. Here’s a few pictures of the market we visited today. Just a microscopic snapshot of what Kampala looks like.
