THE THRILL OF Hope!
For an orphan wondering what he is going to eat tomorrow . . . there is hope.
For a family who has found out that their water supply is poisoned . . . there is hope.
For a young girl trapped in a prison of physical abuse and neglect . . . there is hope.
And hope is here! Right now.
Mark 10:45 paints a beautiful picture of sacrifice: “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Jesus Christ came to earth to serve others and to give up His life to pay the price that we could not pay.
While we are serving in the name of Jesus, we too are being served by the King of Kings! He is giving us the strength and ability to spread love and light in a dark and desperate world. We can’t do any of this without the power of His Spirit working in us—serving us.
So as you look through the SIM 2017 Gift Catalog, open your heart and see how the Lord leads you to offer eternal and current hope to a weary world. Help serve others and share the hope of Jesus Christ.
As you consider blessing others in need of hope around the world, you may give a gift in honor of or in memory of those people special to you. Add a card to your gift in the cart and they will receive a card to tell them about a special gift given on their behalf.
