Jesus’ Command: Preach the
Gospel to People—Serve People

C.H.A.R.G.E.

CRENSHAW CHRISTIAN CENTER

By: Minister Brenda Daniel
The command of Jesus was
that those who are followers of Him would go into all
the world preaching the
gospel to PEOPLE, making
disciples of PEOPLE, and
serving PEOPLE. We are to
do this with the hope and
faith of influencing change
in the lives of PEOPLE! It is
not the Church’s call or
responsibility to change
systems.
As God’s ambassadors traveling to different nations
around the world, many
times we find that while
Satan is the cause, it is the
injustice of systems, governments, political platforms of greed, and power
that strives to keep PEOPLE
in bondage. If our attention
and focus is kept on the
world systems (what they
do or don’t do or how we
can change it) we will soon
become overwhelmed and
unprofitable.
Our efforts
can become and feel like we
are putting a band-aid on a
very large gunshot wound.
Jesus said it this way in
John 17:9-19 :
I pray for them. I do not
pray for the world (system)
but for those whom you
have given Me, for they are
Yours. 10And all Mine are
Yours, and You are Mine
and I am glorified in them.
11
Now I am no longer in the
world (system), but these

are in the world (system).
And I come to You. Holy
Father, keep through Your
name those whom You have
given Me,[b] that they may
be one as We are. 12 While
I was with them in the
world (system),[c] I kept
them in Your name. Those
whom You gave Me I have
kept;[d] and none of them
is lost except the son of
perdition, that the Scripture
13
might be fulfilled.
But
now I come to You and
these things I speak in the
world (system), that they
may have My joy fulfilled in
themselves. 14 I have given
them Your word; and the
world (system) has hated
them because they are not
of the world (system), just
as I am not of the world
(system). 15 I do not pray
that You should take
them out of the world
(system), but that You
should keep them from
16
the evil one.
They are not of the
world (system), just as I
am not of the world
17
(system).
Sanctify
them by Your truth.
Your word is truth.
18
As You sent Me into
the world (system), I also
have sent them into the
world (system). 19 And for
their sakes, I sanctify Myself, that they also may be
sanctified by the truth.

Inside this issue:

Could it be that some of the
reasons those “few” laborers Jesus spoke of in Luke
10:2 are not “going” or
“sent” to the field for the
harvest is because we (the
followers of Christ) have
become overwhelmed and
discouraged by focusing on
the world’s system?
It is easy to feel insignificant and powerless when
our focus is on the devastation of organized and controlled poverty, self seeking
political powers, and the
overall planned systems of
injustice.
Jesus has empowered us to live beyond
the confines of this world’s
system, and to also empower others through the
preaching and teaching of
the Gospel to do the same.

Jesus has commanded that His followers
would go into all the world preaching to

After the evil spirit was cast out of Lunga,
he received Christ , began to talk intelligently, and wanted to attend the meeting.

long enough for the team members to get

close and lay their hands on him and pray!
After the evil spirit was cast out, Lunga
received Christ and began to talk to the
team intelligently. He also wanted to attend the meeting that was already in progress.
As they walked through the courtyard, the
crowd that had formed was in amazement
as Lunga, in his right mind, led the ladies
into the conference. He was given food
and drink and sat and listened to the
Word. He would later give his testimony at
the service saying “...My name is Lunga.
Jesus came to me today, and now I am
free!” Praise God!
The nations are taken one day, one outreach, one meeting, one conversation or
one person at a time. We are called to
finish those greater works that Jesus
started with PEOPLE.

Serving the People of South Africa and Namibia
The ministry in South Africa included a
women’s conference, tent revival
meeting hosted by a local church, outreach to a senior village where food
was provided and distributed, reading
glasses, lunch and mani/pedi’s for the
ladies. The ministry teams also hosted
an All Faith church meeting at two different churches.

In Namibia, we partnered with Koi International for an outreach to a children’s cancer hospital.

These pictures capture the joy in the
faces of the people.
