“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever” (Isaiah 40:8).
This passage is carved into the stone at the entry to the building that will become Truth For Life’s new home within the coming weeks. Each day the verse will serve to remind us that it is an enormous privilege to proclaim God’s everlasting truth widely and boldly during our fleeting stay here in a place and in a body that will wither and fade.
I mention this because we don’t walk beneath these words alone. You are always and faithfully at our side. Your partnership upholds Truth For Life and enables the Word of God to be proclaimed to “the whole of creation” by way of technology unimaginable by the New Testament writers in the first century. Our hope is that the advanced features in our new audio studio, along with the production capabilities of a first-time-ever video studio, will help bring the Good News of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ to people in ways we ourselves have yet to imagine! Our prayer is that God will lead us to this end.
This move marks the end of a construction project that many of you made possible by your generous financial support. Because of your commitment to seeing the Word of God go out to so many, Truth For Life will move into a building that is fully funded and debt free. I’m reminded of the Apostle Paul’s sentiment in the opening verses of Romans, “First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world. For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I mention you always in my prayers...”
At the end of Paul’s ministry, he appealed to Timothy by urging him to preach the Gospel according to the pattern of sound words “in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 1:13-14). As our small team here transitions to new space and new technology, guarding the good deposit remains at the forefront of all we do, thankful for your partnership and undergirded by your prayers. We look forward to the years ahead with a great sense of expectation to preach the Word in season and out of season and to proclaim through every channel possible that, “God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
With my love in the Lord Jesus,
