"Whoever finds me finds life." Proverbs 8:35a
There is a deep cry in each of our hearts to truly connect with God, to discover His amazing love personally and to allow Him to transform our lives so that we can follow Him without restraint. If this echoes the cry of your own heart or you desire to help others to discover this for themselves, then EXPLORE is for you!
A Healing Retreat will be of benefit, whether you need physical healing, struggle with emotional issues or recognise a spiritual problem. The work of Ellel Ministries began with offering Healing Retreats to people in need of help and these free events are still at the heart of our ministry. The Bible brings us the life-giving message of hope that God is able and willing to meet all our needs, no matter how desperate they may seem. In Luke 4:18-19 Jesus quotes part of the Old Testament saying:
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the downtrodden will be freed from their oppressors, and that the time of the Lord's favour has come." Luke 4:18-19
Jesus was aware that the human race was in desperate need of healing, with many people lost to Him or living in situations which felt like prisons. They were physically, emotionally and spiritually ill, or crushed on the inside as people, so that they had lost – or had never really found – their true identity. As Jesus spoke the above words He was declaring that He was the answer. That in Him, and through His love, people could find good news that would bring eternal life. They could receive the healing that would bring restoration, and the freedom to live a fulfilling life, serving Him and in relationship with Him.
2000 years later, the human race needs Jesus as much as in any other generation. The answer is still the same.... Jesus. He has asked Christians, as His followers, to carry on the work which He started while He was on the earth; to bring good news to the poor, to heal the broken-hearted and to release the captives.
