On Friday we’re welcoming about 3,000 people to the Minneapolis Convention Center for the Desiring God National Conference.
The topic is on missions – this is a massively important conference!
There are hundreds of millions of people around the world who are disabled – when we add in their families and caretakers, the numbers of people impacted by disability easily exceeds a billion people.
Every culture, every ethnicity, every economic strata, every geo-political entity experiences disability.
They need to know about Jesus and the real God of the Bible. And they need to know that the health, wealth and prosperity ‘gospel’ is a lie – disability is no sign of disfavor from God nor are they ‘lacking’ faith if God calls them to live with it their entire lives.
As Pastor John has said:
There are only three kinds of Christians when it comes to world missions: zealous goers, zealous senders, and disobedient. May God deliver us from disobedience!
Please pray that God would help everyone at this conference to see him more clearly and understand their role in missions, for his glory and for our good.
