The founding of Ball for Lives was greatly inspired by a message preached on Galatians 2:1-10 by Paul Jackson, former president of Evangelical Baptist Missions. In verses 1-9, the Apostle Paul goes to Jerusalem in order to check with the other apostles that his doctrine, or teaching, is correct. After Peter, James, John, and others confirm that he was preaching the true gospel, they were all ready to go out and reach the world for Jesus!
However, Paul received a solemn warning in verse 10:
“Only, they asked us to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.” (ESV)
The purpose of a Create the Crossover presentation to your church is just that: to inspire your people that as Christians they not only are responsible to help the poor as they preach the gospel, but that they are fully able to do so! In presenting the vision of Ball for Lives, we offer churches very specific and concrete ways to get involved in helping Christians around the world save lives. Better yet, these projects will at the same time help Christians grow in Christ and share the gospel with their own community.
