It’s Care-a-thon time here at the Mars Hill Network. I think this will be the eighth for me and there are a few here at the network that can count twenty-five or more. Care-a-thon is that time of the year, usually landing in March , where we do a concentrated on air appeal to our listeners for financial support. If you listen during our Care-a-thon broadcast we will share many reasons why we believe this is an investment that pays eternal dividends. There are a couple of things I wanted to mention here that might help you decide that supporting Christian broadcasting on the Mars Hill Network.
The culture in our country is in a state of moral chaos. If you are alive today and watching what is happening in America it it easy to become discouraged and cynical. I love this country and it saddens me to see what we are embracing as right in our land. Every day on the radio and now through the internet Mars Hill is airing programs that are light in a world given over to darkness. We need to continue to make sure that ministries that proclaim the truth of God’s Word and the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ are heard in the clutter of the media madness. Secondly, followers of the Jesus Christ need to encouraged in our daily walk with Him. In Hebrews 3:13 it says “but exhort one another daily, while it is called Today, lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” The word exhort could also be translated encourage. We hear from many listeners all the time who give testimony that they have been encouraged in their walk with God by the many programs heard daily on the Mars Hill Network. Whether it be at home, work, or driving in a vehicle we want to be there when you need the encourage of the Scriptures that we might have hope.
I trust that we all might consider the value of a financial pledge of support during this important Cara-a-thon 2012. We’ll talk to you there!
