Daily Devotional for Saturday November 1, 2008
A Call to Serve
A call to serve! The Bible calls us to not just be hearers of the Word, but DOERS of the Word! Here is an opportunity for YOU to serve! With the election next Tuesday, I know God has soverignly raised up the Jonah Project for this moment in human history. We are the vehicle that can lead this nation back to God and Biblical Truth, something no politician can or will do. In the process, we can see literally millions of souls won to faith in Christ, while amassing an army of true followers of Jesus Christ as these last days unfold before our very eyes.
I am excited to announce that Bill Goins and Michael Brown of the newly formed Common Sense Coalition have joined the Jonah Project. Bill and Michael founded "Hucks Army" and "Its Not too Late to Save 08" the very successful grassroots organizations that was one of, if not the major force that enabled Governor Mike Huckabee, a little known Governor from a small state, to finish second, only to John McCain in the Republican primary. Bill and Michael will be using their army building skills to help bring together millions of true followers of Jesus Christ through the Jonah Project .
This army will be modeled after the First Church. Leaders will be selected and trained just as Jesus selected the Apostles and discipled them. These discipled followers then went out and found others to become followers of Christ and then they were discipled to do the same. This process has been going on for the last 2000 years, but somewhere along the way, especially in this country, this disciple process has not only lost its fire, but the fire has almost gone out. It is time to rekindle this fire and make it into a fire that will once again sweep over this great country and around the world as it has in the great revivals of the past.
Obviously an undertaking such as this will require the help of people - dedicated and committed people. We embark upon this endeavor with a sense of destiny on our hearts and we are in search of others who would share this same sense of urgency.
We are so committed to ensure the success of our quest that we cannot afford to request or to accept the participation of anyone who does not feel that saving America is worth their total dedication and focus to this project. We are seeking an army like Gideon's. We are only going to start with 30 people who are totally dedicated to becoming the best leader they can be for Christ and this mission.
We are searching for 30 individuals whose hearts and motives are pure.whose focus and dedication are unquestioned.and who are willing give their all in order to preserve America. Are you one of the ones we are searching for? Would you please commit to pray for the Lord's revelation to your heart if you should be such a person?
Minimum Requirements to become one of the foundational builders of the Jonah Project.
A true leader must be called and prepared by God. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses and David are great examples. This is often a painful process, but the leader God uses is a person of character and faith.
1. You must be a follower of Jesus Christ.
2. You must be totally committed to the cause of reaching the world for Christ and turning this country and the world to God.
3. You must be above reproach, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money and able to manage you own household well.
4. You must not be a recent convert.
5. You must have a good reputation with outsiders.
6. You must be willing and able to lead and disciple a group, this takes time and energy.
7. You must be available for two conference calls a week. Enough conferences will be held to meet the schedule of most people.
8. You must be willing to have your name, state and county you live in posted on the internet as a leader in the Jonah Project.
If you meet the above qualifications and believe God want's you to become involved as a leader in the Jonah Project, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know some things about you that would qualify you to become one of the original founding leaders of the Jonah Project's army. After reviewing your email, I will contact you and discuss your prospect of being an original founding leader.
I love you and care about you so much! This is an opportunity for God to use your life in a very meaningful way. It is no accident that you were led to be part of the Jonah Project. Now you need to pray about being one of the 30 leaders who will form the foundation of the Jonah Project that I believe God is going to use to turn this nation and many of the nations around the world back to God and Biblical Truth, while bringing millions of lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ, while we take a bold and visible stand on the pressing spiritual issues of our day.
Even if God is not calling you to be one of the 30 leaders, every true follower of Jesus Christ needs to get on board with the Jonah Project. Please take a few minutes and go to the Jonah Project homepage. God to Liveprayer.com and simply click on the JONAH PROJECT icons at the top and it will take you to the Jonah Project homepage. Watch the "vision video" that will automatically play, sign up, and become part of this last days move of God that is going to help lead this nation and many nations around the world back to God and His Truth, and see millions of lost souls find faith in Jesus Christ.
Tomorrow is promised to NONE of us. Each day is a gift from God. We live our lives day after day, eventually God says our life is over and it is over. We get very few opportunities to make a real difference with our life, to make it really count for Christ. For 30 people, this will be your opportunity. Pray today and seek the Lord if He is calling you to be one of the 30 leaders in the Jonah Project Army. Everyone who loves the Lord needs to be part of this special group of people God is going to use in a bold, visible, and powerful way. God bless you as we take our stand for Him!
In His love and service, Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ, Bill Keller
