June 30 is a critical date for Basic Gospel. It is the date we close the books on our fiscal year.
The target to hit between now and then is $199,000.
We want to see God crush this target.
I write today to ask for your most generous gift to help shatter this mark.
Let me share with you a recent e-mail I received from George to help amplify the significance of your support to Basic Gospel.
It's a story that shows how God's love punches fear right in the face, and how truth sets a person free.
If you had asked me, "Does God Love you?" I would answer absolutely! It's God's job description. But, does God accept me? – NO WAY! I know who I am. I know what goes through my mind. I know how I treat my wife, and if I don't she does, and on and on concerning my sinful heart. I felt that God just looked at me and shook His head as if to say, "Just what am I going to do with this guy?"
Now I know that even with my master's degree, a bunch of education, and lots of knowledge of the scriptures, that truly no mind can comprehend, no ear can hear, and no eye can see the things that God has prepared for those who love Him. I couldn't love Him until I believed that He loved me first. I know that contrary to what I had been taught by man, the forgiveness issue between God and me was resolved completely at the cross.
I am so thankful that I now have the freedom to draw near to my Father in heaven.
George is living out his identity as a child of God, no longer trapped by fear and a poor self- image.
Your gifts delivered the truth that made the difference in his life. Specifically, you made Romans 8:15, 16 a reality for George.
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!" The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.
But there are so many other Georges out there who are still trapped in fear, guilt and shame. They believe the lies of the enemy about who they are, and they are allowing these lies to shape their beliefs about the love of God.
This is why it is so important to finish this fiscal year strong. Falling short means less ministry moving forward.
This is not a time to shrink back.
This is a time to strap on that New Covenant boldness (2 Corinthians 3:12) and speak directly to the needs of the human heart… through every medium possible…to reach as many people as possible.
I ask again. Please make your most generous gift before June 30. Together, let's shatter this $199,000 target…and start the new fiscal year with an eye toward extending the reach of Basic Gospel…of giving freedom to more people like George to draw near to God.
As thanks for your gift of $15 or more by June 30, I want to send you a copy of The Real You. This brand-new CD series powerfully explains your identity in Christ, why it is so important and how it transforms your day-to-day living.
This is truth that convicts the heart that nothing can separate you from the love of God. You will want to share this teaching! Please request your copy when you send you gift to Basic Gospel.
Let's finish strong. Your gift WILL make a difference. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Because truth matters,
