Many people ask, “If God is such a loving God, then why does He allow so much hurt in the world?” But the true question to ask is, “If God’s people are His hands and feet, than why are they allowing so much hurt in the world?” God already demonstrated the greatest act of love by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to die for our sins and to make us worthy to receive the Holy Spirit. Through faith in His Son, God has empowered us to love and to set the oppressed free just as He did. We have received His Spirit not just to enjoy fellowship with Him, but to be His hands and His feet to this hurting world. Come Quickly Ministries seeks to mobilize prayer, awareness, and action among God’s people in order to bring God’s light into the darkness, particularly among nations who have yet to know the Lord.
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.
