Our greatest and primary resources are spiritual. We seek to live by the NT claim that our primary resources are spiritual and come from God through his appointed means of grace. The gospel is the power of God for salvation (Rom. 1:16). Our confidence is in the saving work of Jesus Christ. The gospel means nothing less than the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the Bible presents him – savior of all who repent and believe (i.e. the 4 gospels). Our responsibility is to share that news with others. Echoing from history are Christian voices that turned to Christ and found him to be their sole source of life (e.g. Acts). So, with confidence in the gospel that God continues to save supremely and beautifully, we tell others about Christ. Prayer and promises are two other resources that dominate scripture and these have created many testimonies throughout the ages. Pascal said, “God instituted prayer in order to lend to his creatures the dignity of causality.” (as quoted by C.S. Lewis in The Efficacy of Prayer). God’s promises are staggering, motivating and dependable. Entire nations have been changed through the gospel, prayer and promises acquired through faith. These range from prayer to obedience, from worship to suffering, but always have Christ at the center, in whom all God’s promises are “yes” (2 Cor. 1:20). Obviously, we cannot ignore our physical needs, and God does not want us to. God desires priority not presumption (Matt.6:33-34). We are grateful and acknowledge that without the cooperation of SBC giving sacrificially, we cannot participate in expanding the kingdom of God as IMB missionaries, but we desire to keep every need in Biblical perspective as we rely on God for the great resources granted to all of God’s children.
