An Encouraging Word
On the front lines for Jesus
Lord's Gym Ministries' mission statement begins with the word "GO."
"GO to people in need in Greater Cincinnati neighborhoods."
If you've been keeping up with the news of late, you know that these neighborhoods are getting more and more violent and deadly every day. Domestic violence, drug use, killings and death are regular occurrences for the friend we help.
They are not alone. God is with them and so are you. With your support, we are serving the Lord by serving our friends in their time of greatest need. You are on the front lines with us. These aren't battles between husband and wife or gang against gang. These are battles of good versus evil. It's spiritual warfare.
We recently held our Community Awareness Breakfast at the Kenwood Country Club and chaplains from each Lord's Gym location - Price Hill, Queensgate and Covington - shared stories of violence they have witnessed while on the front lines. (A few clips are shared in this blog post.)
Still they GO. Still, together, God, you and us, GO. Why? Jesus tells us to in Mark 16:15.
Please, encourage others to join us in this fight. Share with them the amazing things you are a part of - the amazing things the Lord is doing in such a time of great need.
