Luke 8:1-2 GW – “After this, Jesus traveled from one city and village to another. He spread the Good News about God’s kingdom. The twelve apostles were with him. Also, some women were with him. They had been cured from evil spirits and various illnesses. These women were Mary, also called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out…”
Have you ever wondered how Jesus and all the disciples were able to get by day after day preaching and teaching…without a secular job? How were their daily needs provided? They didn’t have a regular church and congregation with weekly offerings and such. It had to be expensive, with 12 men and others, to buy food, and a whole host of other things. So, how did He do it? Read the next verse….
Luke 8:3 GW – “Joanna, whose husband Chusa was Herod’s administrator; Susanna; and many other women. They provided financial support for Jesus and his disciples.” WHAT??? The WOMEN, women who were blessed by His ministry, provided everything they needed! In fact they provided sooooooo much that they needed a treasurer, Judas. My first thought about this is, “Where were the men…where was their money?” My second thought was, “Those women were probably blessed beyond measure for their generosity.”
Our ministry is supported the same way…by people who are blessed by our ministry. Churches are supported the same way too, by people who are blessed by their church’s ministry. Nothing has changed since the time when Jesus was on earth. It’s all part of HIS plan. Do yourself and the world a favor. Do YOUR part, to supply churches and ministries who have blessed YOU and YOUR family, with plenty of finances to keep the ministry of Jesus Christ going around the world! Be generous from month to month….both women AND men. The Gospel is certainly worth it. Remember, the Gospel is free….but proclaiming that same Gospel to all nations is costly!

Yes, that’s a link to my support page for our ministry. I am not ashamed to make it available to you because I believe in what we do. We are not winding down due to ALS. We are gearing up because of the healing and restoration that God is doing and will complete. We are getting ready to get busy!
