Are you viewing the world from a perch, or are you engaging broken people with the Gospel of Jesus?
Pastor Keith encouraged us to not sit up on our “Christian ladder” and judge a hurting and broken world, but rather to enter into the messy work of ministry and share the Gospel with the marginalized.
As we seek to share Jesus with our continent, we give to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions. Join us in praying, giving, and going so that our people may know the joy and life that is found in Christ Jesus.
Keith Carpenter is the Senior Pastor of Epic Life Church in Seattle, Washington. This is a fairly new church plant through the North American Mission Board. We love to support this church in the Northwest because they are actively involved in changing Seattle for the Gospel. To find out more about Epic Life, visit their Web site.
9He who has ears,let him hear.”
10Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” 11And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. 12For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 13This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. 14Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says:
“You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive.”15For this people’s heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’
16But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. 17For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.
