The Spirit of the ANZAC's and Eternity

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
— John 15:13 (NIV)

Eternity Truck design by Steve Grace

It’s been 100 years since the end of the great war. A war that devastated the world and saw millions of lives lost. One survivor of that war was an Australian soldier, Arthur Stace… He returned home to Australia but became an alcoholic on the streets of Sydney. After his profound conversion to Christ he began to write the word ‘Eternity’ on footpaths and walls to remind people of their eternal destiny. He wrote that one word over 500,000 times in his humble crusade to reach people with the Gospel.

Today we honour Arthur Stace. We honour the ANZAC’s 100 years on from their battle for freedom. And we share a vision to keep the legacy alive across Australia. Our vision is for the Eternity Truck. A mobile concert stage that will be used to proclaim the Good News for many years to come.

It started out as a Tee shirt design but we now realise God has far more in mind for this image. We want to reach Australian’s with the Good News. We want to see people set free from sin and addictions and despair. We’ve set up a fund raising account for the vision of the Eternity Truck. Help us make this dream a reality.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
— Galatians 5:1

Seed Time and Harvest

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
— 2 Peter 1:3

Hang out with a farmer for a day and you get it. This walk of faith in dry times. Farmers do their best to feed the world. Unpredictable weather systems and climate changes are all part of the challenge to produce a harvest in due season. There are no guarantees. It is an expression of faith and determination every year as a farmer plants new crops in a field.

But it says a lot about life and who we are as well. Live your life sewing good seed into others, believing in others, supporting those who are out there going for it for God. When we take small steps of generous faith God turns up and provides so much more. Keep loving and serving people like Jesus does. You can’t go wrong.

Farming families across Australia have been forced to plant seed into dry ground again this year as the early season rains have not yet come. It takes great faith to invest so much into the land at this time and yet its that faith that eventually produces a harvest later in the year. And whether a crop is bountiful or fails, God’s faithfulness remains the same. He is at work in our lives as we seek first His Kingdom and righteousness.
 

And to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
— Ephesian 3:19-20
