ECG Nelspruit branch has not only been reaching out with the word of God, but helping the need with a deliberate program set for health care and provision of some of the basic needs in human life. At least twice a month, they mobilize themselves as a church and extend a hand of comfort, feed those hungry and whisper a message of hope of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Today’s Church has an opportunity of being proactive at reaching out to people who are less privileged. However, there are not many efforts done to reach out to people who are in need.
To be “poor in spirit” is not the same as being economically poor, yet both kinds of poverty matter, and the church must address both.
We make them listen to sermons before we feed them, ask them to join the church before we clothe them. We use them as objects instead of people loved through us. God is love, and by being endowed in his image, as they are, we ought to love them for who they are in God’s kingdom here on earth. It is important to do this because Jesus loved them enough to die on the cross for them.
How we love the poor is a clear indicator of how we understand God’s love for us. Too often, in misunderstanding God’s love we make the poor the object of our charity, the front cover of our programs, the focus of our grant requests, or the target audience to fill our seats.
Pastor Rich Wills, son of Major 1, commands this project which continues to foster the corporate social responsibility and upholding the goodwill of the ECG Church in the said society. He gives particular emphasis that ECG is a Beacon of hope and our father in the Lord, Major 1 who has taught us a heart of love has sent us to reach out to the entire globe.
