Camille's April 21 editorial: The life of a true servant

Pastor Miki Hardy has for many years an international ministry with pastors. He has at heart to transmit the sound doctrine of Christ which the Church needs so much. 

Throughout his experiences, he observed how the Gospel message was sometimes perverted by false doctrines with the servants of God as primarily responsible.

From this observation was born the BATIR project, a series of four international virtual conferences for pastors to bring them a Jesus-centered message and restore His church.

The fourth and last conference of BATIR will be held on May 26 and 27, its theme will be “the life of a true servant of God”. All pastors who wish to do so are invited to participate!

Today's news shows us examples of two servants of God who, at first glance, have nothing in common. 

Starting with Justin Bieber. Tuesday night, the singer was in Cincinnati, Ohio for a concert. The star, who regularly uses her Instagram account followed by 231 million people to speak about her faith and evangelize her fans, published a video where we see him leading a short time of prayer with his team before going on stage.

Randy Miller lives in Seattle in the United States where he is homeless. Determined to be "a blessing to others", he walks the streets of the city to offer free haircuts to those who need it. The traveling barber claims to draw his motivation from the Bible, citing more precisely a verse from the book of Matthew, the famous teaching of Jesus: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”.

Today's editorial concludes with a study by the American Bible Society. 

The organization has published a report on Bible reading in the United States every year for more than ten years. The 2022 edition reveals that nearly 26 Million Americans Stopped Reading the Scriptures in the Past Year. A significant drop that researchers attribute to the closure of churches due to the pandemic.

In the preface to the report, Robert Briggs, general president and director of the American Bible Society shares a message of hope despite these alarming numbers.

He reminds us that this observation gives us a perspective on a reality that the Lord already knows, and invites American Christians to take this as a starting point to serve God and advance His Kingdom.
