How many officers in The Salvation Army will it take to win the world for Jesus? More than we have now.
This weekend past we commissioned 57 new officers. That’s good…very good.
The next session has 44 cadets. That’s good too.
In August, we expect 55 or so cadets to enter. That’s good.
On Sunday, 120 came forward for commitment to officership. It looks like God still has plans for us. I’m most grateful.
About the numbers? Read between the numbers. These are lives committed to Jesus. This is a sign that more people will come to Jesus as a result. Hallelujah!
“Up with God! Down with his enemies! Adversaries, run for the hills! Gone like a puff of smoke, like a blob of wax in the fire— one look at God and the wicked vanish. When the righteous see God in action they’ll laugh, they’ll sing, they’ll laugh and sing for joy. Sing hymns to God; all heaven, sing out; clear the way for the coming of Cloud-Rider. Enjoy God, cheer when you see him! Father of orphans, champion of widows, is God in his holy house. God makes homes for the homeless, leads prisoners to freedom, but leaves rebels to rot in hell.” Psalm 68:4-5 MSG
