Like Paul in the above Scripture we give thanks to God for you. Your prayers and generous financial support mean listeners and readers are equipped and ready to do the good work of the Gospel.
How can we become mature and discerning Christians—not led astray by every wind of false teaching? Through hearing the Word! Then we can boldly speak the truth in love, even in these troubled and uncertain times.
“We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people.” Colossians 1:3-4 NIV
Your support means The Word for Today is a daily source of hope and encouragement from God’s Word to seasoned, and new, believers. We love that your faithful financial support means we are able to send them out without charge.
This, coupled with Vision Christian Radio’s ever expanding and freely available radio network—now rapidly approaching 700 community locations—is providing a strong clarion voice to the nation. You’re bringing truth, hope and encouragement to a world that’s become hopelessly lost and disconnected from reality, which we know can only be found in Christ Jesus.
During Visionathon I was particularly inspired by a young mother and her 13 year old daughter, both relatively new believers. They shared how listening to the radio and reading our daily devotionals helped them grow in faith each day. The young girl, whose name is Faith, was introduced to Vision180 youth magazine by someone from church. This equipped her to share with her friends at school the reason for her new found faith in God.
I hope you will be inspired and encouraged as you read the testimonies and positive reports of how you are continuing to reach the lost and the broken and give strength and purpose to those from all different backgrounds, locations on this journey of faith we have in Christ.
As we approach the Christmas season we are reminded God has given us His one and only Son as His perfect, free gift, to set us free. We too should consider what we can give back to our Lord as an expression of our worship and gratitude. Together we can reach out to those less fortunate than ourselves and demonstrate the true meaning of the season—being Christ’s hands, feet and voice for those who haven’t found Him yet.
In His strong and Mighty Name
