More than a Mile Deep

2017 05 26 - Samuel Ajayi CrowtherSamuel Ajayi Crowther would fit right in with More than a Mile Deep (MMD), Entrust’s ministry partner in Africa.

Ajayi Crowther was born in Nigeria in 1809, sold into slavery at about age 12, bound off to South America, freed before he got there by the British and returned to Sierra Leone (not his home country). In Sierra Leone, he became a Christian, a Bible teacher and eventually a missionary back to his homeland, taking dangerous ministry trips up the Niger River. He became the first Anglican bishop in Africa.

Bishop Crowther emphasized true repentance and obedience to Christ, not what some would call “cheap grace.” He aimed to equip local leaders to carry on the ministry. He sought holistic transformation – helping to establish schools and local businesses wherever he went – while keeping the gospel central to all he did.

That’s MMD! Check it out at www.entrust4.org/mmd.

Amazing Grace

 If you saw the 2006 film “Amazing Grace,” or you enjoy reading history, you know about the courageous British parliamentarian, William Wilberforce, who spoke out against his country’s slave trade until that practice was officially abolished on this date in 1807. A good start.

We know that a law does not end all sin. Blacks were (and still are) treated poorly in England and in “the new world” long after they were officially declared “free.” Changing those laws was the right thing to do, but bad behaviors remained. No law sets any of us free from our slavery to sin. Only God can do that. And he does when you trust him in faith for forgiveness of your sins.

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:36) That is amazing grace!!!
