"It is impossible for gold to flow through a vessel
and not leave a residue!"
Bishop D.J. Hall, 1
James 1: 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this,
To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself
unspotted from the world.
We are a thriving multicultural ministry, ministering to the needs of God's
people through the love of service to His body, meeting their needs
through spiritual or substantial giving.
We believe that in each person is the God breathed life giving essence that is "greater is he
that is in you, than he that is in the world." After being delivered from the chains of bondage,
we then nurture the body back to health, spiritually and physically, "For you know that we
dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and
urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory; building up
yourselves on your most holy faith." "And we know that all things work together for good to
them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
We treasure the vessel, mending and patching up the broken areas, then present him so he
can be of service once again, showing the wonderful, magnificent splendor and glory of God
for the world to see. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good
works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied
with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the
There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith
unto her, Give me to drink. (For his disciples were gone away
unto the city to buy meat.) Then saith the woman of Samaria
unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me,
which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings
with the Samaritans. Jesus answered and said unto her, If
thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee,
Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he
would have given thee living water. The woman saith unto
him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep:
from whence then hast thou that living water? Art thou greater
than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank
thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? Jesus
answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water
shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I
shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give
him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting
life. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I
thirst not, neither come hither to draw. John 4: 6-15
Jesus and the
at the well
We can never tell when we will be that water for a thirsty soul down the road of life
for someone in need. We're to be ready in and out of season, to extend the love of
Christ to all, to pick of the shield of Faith, breastplate of righteousness, the sword
of the Spirit, the belt of truth, and sandals of the gospel of peace to be His helping
hands and feet to those over burdened, ensalved to powers, and worn out. To bring
the encoraging words of Christ, the refreshing unquenchable filling of the Holy
Spirit, and comfort to the restored and reconciled.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man
lay down his life for his friends.
"Likewise, it is hard to do ministry work, without getting it on you!"
