House of ill Repute

11 Nov

House of ill Repute…

On a mission trip to Central America, we discovered that we had been booked into a house of ill-repute, a house of prostitution. The prostitutes were away, but still, staying in a house of prostitution is not exactly the kind of thing to put in a ministry newsletter.

Something led us to stay and pray. We anointed all the rooms and gathered to worship the Lord. Then hotel employees joined and listened. A woman there had a dream that she was in a party and people were going to hell, but then she saw Jesus and He came to her.

When we told her what her dream meant, she accepted the Lord as well as the hotel manager and many others there. The Lord called us to go there. Jesus was called a friend of sinners.

God came to this world so you could overcome your circumstance, your situation, to bless and transform the people in your life. Don’t run away. Don’t react, but be a light to them. We are here to bring the Good News and life to this world which is a house of ill-repute.

When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Mark 2:16-17

No matter where you are today, no matter what your situation, find God’s purposes in it and work it to redemption.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
