Northern Asia-Pacific Division (NSD) Holds Week of Prayer
April 20, 2012

  Dr. Derek Morris, General Conference Ministerial Associate and Ministry magazine editor, was the speaker for the NSD Week of Prayer, March 12-16, 2012. The theme of his messages was “Radical Followers of Jesus.”

  Monday’s devotional was “The Radical Testimony of Jesus.” Seventh-day Adventists are to be foremost in uplifting Christ to our world. On Tuesday Elder Morris encouraged us to pray “A Radical Prayer” from Luke 10:2. “He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” He exhorts us to take the words of this verse personally, and go out and spread the gospel in our communities.

 

  “Radical Protection” was the message Pastor Morris shared on Wednesday. God is more than able to protect His witnesses. It is necessary for us to put on His full armor (Ephesians 6:9-11).  Thursday we were challenged to be “Radical Apostles”proclaiming the good news about Jesus and extending His healing ministry to those in our circle of influence. In his Friday sermon, Pastor Morris reminded us that every time Jesus was tempted, He responded, “It is written.” Our strength for a victorious Christian life of witness comes as we memorize God’s Word. The Holy Spirit will bring God’s Words to our remembrance when they are needed if we store them in our minds.  

  Through God’s Word, Pastor Morris invited the NSD ministry family and the Ministerial & Shepherdess Advisory delegates who met with them to share the message of Jesus with our NSD mission field. Each devotional time closed with a session of fervent prayer that we be more radical followers and witnesses of Jesus Christ and His soon return.
