Sonship: What does it look like in today’s world?

As Christians, we are constantly reminded that we need to exercise our faith and work on our individual relationships with God. But what does that mean? How can we become the sons of God that He intended us to be? Especially in a world that is ever-changing. 

The answer may be as simple as a tree. Yes, a tree. You see the Cedar is a very special tree, the Cedar in specific are mentioned more than 100 times in the Bible. Cedars can reach from 98 to 131 feet in height and around 8 feet in diameter, they grow on mountains and some of the most challenging terrains and even reach up to 8,000 feet above sea level.  

To break this down, we can look at Cedars as a perfect example of the characteristics of a son of God. Being above sea level means having the ability to see beyond the norm, beyond what this world offers and what culture dictates. You see, sons are not affected by what affects humanity, they are not swayed or moved by the winds or doctrines of men, they operate in a different way,  talk in a different way and think in a different way. 

Being above sea level moreso 8,000 feet means that you are above human intellect or human strength, you are in the Earth but not of it. Thus everything that you do on this Earth is not of you or for you but of a higher calling and purpose from God. 

John 1:12-13 says that “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.”

Sonship thus is today’s world means that you are DIFFERENT, and operate on a higher level than others do. But remember that this type of growth doesn’t come immediately, it takes time. Cedars can take up to 40 years to reach full maturity, so sons must have the patience to go through the necessary process as led by God. We must then allow the glory of the Son to have full rights to our hearts, souls, and minds. Because it will flow through us to touch and change the lives of others around us and ultimately reshape the culture around us too. 

In conclusion, being a son of God is a lot like being the Cedars of Lebanon, you are unshaken and unmoved by the things around you (in the world), and operate on an entirely different level, an elevated level that is growing and being shaped by Christ for a higher calling. So continue to work on your salvation and be more like Him because the purpose of our roles as ambassadors is to shine as lights to lost humanity.

Strategic Outreach By All Possible Ways – THE SOLAR KIT PROJECT!

Everyone deserves a chance to learn about Jesus. Some places are simply hard to reach. Some villages have little or no electricity, and some people cannot read.

GNPI-Africa has combined the latest technology with solar power to bring God’s truth to the most remote places in Africa. One Christian worker even called the solar kit “a miracle,” giving him the ability to draw crowds and then share the good news! Another team member said, “It’s amazing what the Lord is doing through this little yellow kit! We trained our partners, gave them the kits, and the Holy Spirit is doing the rest.”

A Solar Kit includes a projector which runs on a lithium battery (charged by a solar panel), cables, a set of speakers, and a waterproof case with a screen built into the lid. Each kit weighs 13 pounds and is about the size of a shoebox. GNPI-Africa provides not only Solar Kits but also media in a variety of languages for different cultures, so kingdom workers can present the gospel in the most helpful way to the people they are serving. Because they’re easy to transport and don’t require electricity, Solar Kits can be taken into rural villages, remote jungles, refugee camps, and any other region of the world where electricity is scarce.

Around 780 million people worldwide are illiterate today. Even if the Bible has been translated into their native language, they’re not able to read it. That’s why a visual presentation of the gospel, like the one we show on our Solar Kits, is a powerful tool for reaching these people. It’s one of the most meaningful and relevant ways they can learn about Jesus.

GNPI-Africa is a part of a network of production centers around the world, which are operated by Good News Productions, International (GNPI) located in Joplin, Missouri, USA. Since 1981, GNPI has mobilized more than 750 solar powered media kits in 50 different nations. They’ve been instrumental in evangelism, church planting, and leadership training around the world.

We work together to spread the good news around the world and are always looking to add new partners, and that includes you! Here are a few ways you could be part of the impact Solar Kits are having worldwide:

Find out if the missionaries and kingdom workers you support would benefit from a Solar Kit. Then, consider asking your church, Sunday school class, small group, or VBS to sponsor a kit for the workers you support.

Sponsor a Solar Kit for one of GNPI-Africa ministry partners and provide them with a powerful tool for sharing the gospel in their communities.

A Youth Initiative with a Difference! NIFAM Ministry and GNPI-Africa

COVID-19 has affected millions of people around the world. Teenagers and young people alike have experienced these effects. During lockdown in Kenya, there was a 40% increase in teenage pregnancies- 152,000 Kenyan teenage girls became pregnant. There has also been a surge in drug abuse and teenage pregnancy.

NIFAM Ministry thus pursued the need for a transformation and empowerment program within the Mathare – Kiamaiko slum to transform, empower, and equip young people to be self-reliant and responsible adults.

This aim is fulfilled through various activities such as; talent nurturing through dance, spoken word, music, and drama, behavior change programs (Life skills training, guidance, and counseling), mentorship programs, career guidance, and spiritual guidance.

GNPI-Africa was able to provide a professional counselor who spoke to the teenagers and youth about their relationship with God and assist in giving a platform for the youth and teenagers to showcase their talent on a large scale. We hope to see more youth being transformed and empowered to be examples for Christ in their communities and among their peers.

Sharing The Hope of Christ – The Global Gospel Project!

750 million people around the world cannot read or write. 1.5 billion people do not have access to the full Bible. How do we begin to share the hope of Christ? The Global Gospel series is made up of 107 short illustrated videos depicting the life of Jesus Christ. The series has been able to reach over 2 million views globally and translated into more than 40 languages.

Our Team is passionate about reaching out to African communities, and so far we have been able to translate the series into Swahili and currently we are translating The Global Gospel series into the Somali and Amharic languages.

The short length of each gospel story allows them to be shared easily on multiple devices and platforms. Any device that can play MP4 files and has the ability to accept and share files via Bluetooth, WiFi, or an SD card can be used to view. We began distributing Swahili videos through YouTube, Facebook, and other social media platforms.

Solar Kits – another tool we use for strategic evangelism have also been an effective medium for sharing The Global Gospel series. These solar-powered projectors are used by missionaries in places where electricity is scarce. Most of the people living in these areas are non-literate or prefer to learn orally. The Global Gospel is a way for us to share the good news with them through a medium that is meaningful and relevant.

Jesus Story: Creating a Lifelong Impact on Children!

There are so many children who have never had the chance to hear the Good News. Jesus Story was created with them in mind so that even the smallest of ears have the chance to hear.

In this program, engaging hosts present thirteen half-hour Swahili episodes of biblical content formatted specifically for television and young viewers. 

The Jesus story series came from an idea to rework The Global Gospel (TGG) as a program that the younger generation could enjoy.

We believe everyone should have the chance to hear about Jesus! It’s exciting to see hearts and lives changed through this strategic evangelism tool, and we’re almost done with this short Swahili series.

You can be part of teaching the love of Jesus to children all over the world, often for the first time. Your gift today can help the Gospel reach right into their homes. Together we can share the Good News about Jesus with families around the world.

Al Massira: A Journey in The Company of Others!

In Arabic ‘Al Massira’ means a journey and implies the idea of setting out in the company of others. Al Massira explores the messages and signs of the Old Testament prophets, their fulfillment in the person of the Messiah, and reveals the consistent revelation of Father, Son, and Spirit throughout all of scripture. 

The course, a chronological presentation of the biblical message, comprises a series of thirteen (40 minutes) documentary films, Discussion Guides, Participant’s Notes, Leader’s Manual, and other supporting documents. Usually, the course is accessed through a two-day interactive training event.

Typically, for those using Al Massira, a small group of friends draws together, some interested seekers and one or more believers, and together they embark on a journey of discovery. They meet regularly to watch the films, share food, and participate in a guided and open discussion of the biblical content of the course, with the opportunity for the Holy Spirit to work through prayer.

This is the primary context in which the resource is used, however other settings are also appropriate and can include: one-to-one, large group settings, and also within church contexts.
