Okay God

Courageous Obedience to Curious Calls

When the Lord first caught me off guard by asking me to take a semester off school and go back to Uganda after spending close to three months there already this Summer, He directed me to do three things: Love the people, serve with all my heart, and demonstrate to His people what "obedience to the call" and "the front lines" really look like. This blog is my attempt to do just that. I pray that what you read here would leave you encouraged and inspired to wholeheartedly take the leap to do whatever God might be asking of you.

Bringing the Gardener to Christmas



It is easy to get overwhelmed by the details of the Christmas story; animals, wise men and no vacancy signs - all important in their own ways. Often we get so focused on Emanuel (God With Us), we forget the mutiny of sin, the willing Son sent to die, the Father's daring grand gesture and, the death and resurrection of the matter, all to, (you guessed it) be with us once again.

Adam and Eve fellowshiped with God in the Garden. In the cool of the evening God himself would walk with them. When sin destroyed this incredible bond, God made provision for us to draw near again. G.K. Chesterton wrote, "On the third day the friends of Christ coming at daybreak to the place found the grave empty and the stone rolled away. In varying ways they realised the new wonder; but even they hardly realised that the world had died in the night. What they were looking at was the first day of a new creation, with a new heaven and a new earth; and in a semblance of the gardener God walked again in the garden, in the cool not of the evening but the dawn."


By the victory of Christ we have been given a way to draw near to God again. Ask Him today to make himself real to you. He wants to walk through life with you.


How fitting that we center our celebrations around a tree at Christmas - a visual reminder of the Garden He will restore once again. Until then He wants to walk with you through the realness of your life. Ask him to today.

About Zac

As a child of parents in full-time missionary-evangelism, traveling across North America and into North Africa and the Middle East, I have had amazing opportunities to serve, learn, and preach. Through these opportunities, I received my personal call to ministry and have had it confirmed time and time again.

 

I spent the summer of 2018 in Uganda aiding my parents in the operations of Global Harvest Ministries and Pastor Mike Quinlan as he pastors Arua Pentecostal Church. While there, I felt the Lord ask me to hold off on the next semester of school and spend more time serving the people of Arua. Upon arriving home (Ilderton, ON, Canada) in August, instead of preparing to return back to Portland, OR, USA, for my junior year, I went for a short trip to collect my car, pack my belongings, visit some greatly missed friends (my surrogate family away from home), and get one last Dutch Bro’s Rebel before making the trek home and then back to Uganda in mid-September.

 

I am passionate about reaching the lost and leading the next generation into a personal encounter with the Holy Spirit. I value an honest, arms wide open, love till it hurts, ‘Jesus-like’ life, and am passionately pursuing it. While in Africa, I will be using these passions, while I help manage the numerous operations of Global Harvest Ministries, as well as helping in Arua Pentecostal Church. I will be working with South Sudanese Refugees, empowering impoverish women through skills training, and doing hands-on prison ministry, youth ministry, college ministry and much more.

I have earned my Associates Degree in Christian Humanities in May 2018 and am pursuing a Bachelor of Theology through Portland Bible College Online, although I intend to return to Portland to finish my education in person once released by the Lord.
