Declare His Glorify
by Bill Martin
I Chronicles 16:24 says, "Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples."
I've been writing for Connection magazine for some time now. I especially love it when people come up to me and say they love reading my articles. (I usually expect some comment about an I-Team report). I love to write them even though at times I pull my hair out to beat deadline.
This magazine is a blessing and the opening scripture is a perfect mission statement, for all of us. "Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples."
It's hard to get the truth. I know from being in Television. The media is biased whether deliberate or not. I see both sides almost every day and I try to fight and bring balance as a Christian. Don't get me wrong because I love the people I work with and they do a great job, but there are divergent personalities and not all love the Lord! It's like any other work place. My challenge to you: pray for us. "Pray without ceasing" (1 Thessalonians 1:17)
It's also time for you to know how hard the people work at Connection Magazine. I volunteer my articles, to be honest, and take no money. I consider it part of my own ministry, however Connection can be so much more effective with your support.
We need your support by word of mouth to tell others of this Holy Spirit filled publication. People have come to Christ through Connection Magazine. Others have reconnected to their faith. Through it all, I know the folks putting this together have taken the heat by speaking the truth in a culture choked with political correctness.
Connection Magazine also needs your resources, talents and money. Please consider advertising or making a donation so that we can grow Connection's ministry to advance God's Kingdom. Tens of thousands of readers will be blessed by your help. We have all been given the assignment to take the good news of Jesus into all the world. By sowing into Connection, the news of the Gospel goes forth into supermarkets, grocery stores, libraries and coffee shops. (Luke 6:38 promises that as you give it shall be given to you. Giving to Connection is a great way to store up treasure in Heaven. Connection belongs to you and me, but most importantly the Lord.
Let's spread the Gospel. Let's stand up for what's right. Let's take charge and speak the truth with love. Connection is a tool that will help us do that. I promise that I will continue to help.
Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
