NEXT ABILITY PROJECT SERVICE September 1, 2018 11:00 am

What is Ability Project?

The purpose of Ability Project is to help people with disabilities to know their purpose in Jesus Christ.

There are 57 million people with disabilities in America, that’s 1 in 5 people.

As a ministry we are looking for opportunities to:

1. Bring awareness to God’s people about the disability community
2. Start up Chapel services for those with disabilities in other communities
3. Train Disability Leaders/Pastors
4. Promote Camp Ability, a time of refreshing for those with disabilities

THE CORE VALUES OF ABILITY PROJECT

Inclusion
All people with disabilities should be valued, treated with respect and accepted into the body of Christ. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” (1 Corinthians. 12:21)

Evangelize
To bring everyone, including people with a disability to the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ! “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”(Mathew 28:19, John 13:35)

Discipleship
Give opportunity for people with disabilities to learn God’s Word; giving each individual an opportunity to discover their God-given abilities and to exercise these gifts in the community. (Ephesians 4:8-16)

Serving
Jesus says in Matthew 20:28 “I did not come to be served, but to serve others.” It is important to ‘wash’ one another’s feet as Christ Jesus did. (John 13:14,15)

Christ Centered
Recognizing the value of God’s Word in everyday living by following Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Proclaiming that “Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)

Triumph Through Failure

John 21:1-9

We’ve all left footprints in the valley of failure. What matters is how we respond afterwards. Do we give up and live a defeated life, or do we believe God can restore us?

The story of Peter’s failure and subsequent restoration gives us tremendous encouragement. Jesus warned that Peter would fall short, but He also prayed for the disciple’s faith not to fail. Jesus assured Peter ahead of time that his failure would not be the end of the story—he would stand up again and strengthen the others (Luke 22:31-32).

The Lord knew that before Peter could be molded into a strong yet humble leader, his pride and self-confidence had to be brought low and his heart broken. Although Satan wanted to sift the disciple to make him useless, Christ commandeered the process to make Peter useful.

In the same way, God can use our failures to prepare us to be more effective servants for Him. Although we may feel as though we have slipped from His grasp, Jesus has promised that nothing and no one can separate us from His love. He sits at the Father’s right hand, always interceding for us (Rom. 8:34).

When we wallow in our failures and build walls around our heart to deny the Lord access, we are resisting much-needed brokenness and healing. If we want God to use us, we must allow Him to get rid of the chaff that keeps us from being who He desires us to be. But if we will humbly turn to the Lord, He’ll give us a fresh start and a renewed understanding of His goodness and purpose.
