God's Transforming Power

At our Operation Christmas Child Northwestern PA Area Team meeting on Tuesday, our Prayer Coordinator (pictured above) presented a devotional.  Her talk concentrated on the power of God (dunamis) mentioned in Ephesians 1:18,19a.

She showed us a plain unassuming white box.  It didn't look like much of anything.  But Linda explained that when that box is filled with simple items for a needy child, when it is prayed for and sent to that child in another country, when that box is prayerfully distributed by a local church of believers along with a meaningful gospel presentation and when the child who receives it is offered a chance to participate in follow-up discipleship lessons....that box may become something very different.

When God's dunamis power infuses that box it can be transformed from a simple gift to.....

something as amazing as a newly-planted church where new believers can be nurtured in their growing faith.

Don't you love seeing God show His power?  Don't you love that He lets us come alongside Him in this ministry of Operation Christmas Child?
