Over the course of four weeks, Pastor Allen introduces the Christmas gifts that God has for his people. Reap the benefits of gifts requires the ability and knowledge to receive. The gift of righteousness is received by accepting Jesus as Lord of your life. Only through the divine exchange on the Cross, where Jesus took the penalty for our sins, can we receive the righteousness that was due to Jesus. When we confess our sins, and receive His gifts with appreciation and humility, God purifies us from all unrighteousness and leave us with no blemish before Him.
People who pray make a difference. That’s why we want to send you Pastor Allen’s book Today I Will: 30 Days of Prayer – along with a beautiful olive wood Christmas ornament – as our gift to thank you for your support today. Request yours when you give by December 31 to help Intend take the Gospel further in 2017!
Since its inception in 2010, Intend Ministries has taken this mission seriously and has developed tools to take the message of God’s Word to where people live around the corner or across the globe. This is being accomplished through such avenues as creating curricula for small group Bible studies (called “God Spots”), hosting conferences and training pastors around the world, and engaging in a national and international television ministry.
