Abiding Life Ministries International is a worldwide (150 countries so far) missions organization dedicated to the simple message that there is nothing the nearness of Christ cannot overcome. This message we call the abiding life (John 15) is best explained by the following illustration: Holding both hands out in front of you, imagine Christ on your right hand and your problems on your left hand. As you move the hand with problems toward you, the problems get your attention and become all-consuming. However, if you move the hand with Christ on it toward you, He gets your attention, and though the problems have not disappeared, they are not overwhelming. What gets your attention gets you.

The goal of Abiding Life Ministries is singular: We are missionaries to Christians and desire to see them focused on Christ and understanding all He has already done for them. ALMI does not present a one-time fix; it is our conviction that Christ desires a moment-by-moment relationship with Himself, and in the moment of an abiding relationship, we share in all of Christ’s victory, all of His power, and all of His work. The Bible proclaims that power comes through weakness, so as Christians we should pray to be weak, for we only fail where we think we are strong. The man who did everything did nothing, and all that He ever did, He never did. It was the Father doing it through Him.

In John 17 is a promise that we can be one with Him as He was with the Father. We never pray, “Help me be strong. Help me have love. Help me have kindness, etc.” We pray this: “Jesus, in this moment You come to be my love, my kindness, and my peace, for without You I can do nothing.” We believe in a purpose for suffering, and there are things learned in suffering that cannot be learned in comfort. To that end, we believe God permits what He could prevent. We also believe in being offended until we can no longer be offended, and that in every relationship God is working something spectacular in our lives. Understood by the name “Abiding Life Ministries International” is the fact that we take the message of abiding in Christ internationally.

Breath of fresh air

I love listening to the show. I get so much encouragement and hope from listening, especially when you share you all share your personal stories and struggles. I’ve been in a dark place for a while, and I get more out of this podcast than any other sermon. Thank you for doing this show!
