And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
Matthew 5:30 NKJV
What a radical portion of scripture. What is so extreme about it is the lengths one must go through to deal with sin. What we see here is the extreme nature of sin and dealing with it and also the extreme cost of not dealing with it. What is clear here is that if you do not deal with sin in your life sin will deal with you. The Bible tells us the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus. Jesus Christ dealt with our sin at the cross and it is through his work that we can cut off sin by putting our trust in his finished work. This is our very approach in dealing with drugs and alcohol and restoration.
Here’s what’s going on this quarter at U-turn for Christ New Mexico.
At the woman’s ranch the men assembled some raised garden beds to start a nice spring garden this teaches good stewardship and shows good life skills to our students.
Easter service celebration at CCSW church service. U Turn for Christ Men’s ministry was blessed to be able to participate in the setup and teardown of this awesome outreach where we seen lots of people come to Christ and our families were blessed at the outdoor service. It is an awesome thing to be able to teach the students to serve and not to be served just like Jesus!
Finally we took the ministry to participate in the national Day of Prayer where we heard leaders from churches and government lead us in prayer for our country and our community. What a joy when the body of Christ gets together and seeks him in a powerful time of prayer.
Pray for our women’s ministry taking time to get trained to go into the prison and establish a prison ministry presence for U Turn for Christ New Mexico. We hope to see much more influence and people coming to Christ and able to come out of prison and transition into life that Christ wants for them.
Thank you so much to all our supporters and people who have generously supported us. We couldn’t do it without the Lord and his prompting in your hearts to give to support the ministry. You can do so by visiting our support page helping further the mission that God has given us here at the U-turn for Christ New Mexico ranch.
