Have you thought about God’s heart lately in your ministry? God’s whole thought for us is expansion! God is in the “big thinking” business!
Welcome to the transformed podcast.
Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California says that, “If you took a hard look at this motley crew of 13 men standing in Jesus’ presence, hearing these words, you would laugh yourself silly. These losers are supposed to change and invade the entire world! Ludicrous? Yes! Was He serious? Absolutely! He also believes we are to continue that dream by reaching one more for Jesus!”
Let’s open our Bible to Ephesians 3 as we see how far we should go to reach one more for Jesus!
