KCM Europe - Love Letters from Heaven
By Gloria Copeland

“Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.”
1 Peter 2:17

The reason we, as God’s children, are living on this earth is so that we can advance the kingdom of God. Certainly, God wants to bless us and give us wonderful lives, but if that is all He wanted to do, He would take us to heaven the minute we made Jesus the LORD of our lives. After all, the least that heaven has to offer beats the best we have on earth.

But God left us here so we can influence others for Him. He told us to share the gospel with lost people so that they can get born again. One of the most powerful ways we can do that is by simply loving them.

The love of God is one of the most evangelistic forces of all. The whole world is looking for love all the time, everywhere they go. You may not realize that if you’ve been a Christian for a while. You may almost take love for granted. I know I sometimes do. My whole family is saved, all my friends are saved, everyone I work with is saved…and since they all have the love of God flowing through them, I’m surrounded by love almost all the time.

Worldly people do not have that experience. They are surrounded by a selfish, dog-eat-dog society. They are not exposed to the love of God very much, and they are starved for it.

If you will just let God’s love within you flow out to them, you will be amazed how it will minister to them. If you will just honor them and respect them, treat them like they are the most precious, valuable beings in the world, God’s love will touch them and open their hearts. Then, when you have the opportunity to share the gospel with them, they will be eager to hear it. They will be prepared and ready to receive.

In times past, the Church missed it in this area in a big way. We focused so much on the sinfulness of sinners that we began to disregard and look down on them. We developed an inner attitude of disdain toward those who were in rebellion against God and were not born again.

But, the Bible does not teach us to do that. It says we should honor all men. It says we should be like our Father who loved not just the righteous but the whole world so much, He sent Jesus to die for their sins. Even in our fallen and dishonorable state, God still saw in us the wonderful beings He created us to be. He recalled what we were before the Fall, looked through the eyes of Love, and saw what, through His redemption, we could once again be.

When we start seeing the lost in that same light, we will love them just as He does…and that love will draw them to Him.

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows KCM Europe - Kenneth Copeland Ministries to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to KCM Europe - Kenneth Copeland Ministries we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

    NOTE:  You must be UK-domiciled for Tax purposes to be eligible in principle for this scheme.  If you have any doubts about your tax status in the UK, check with the HMRC (the UK tax authority) before making a declaration as you will be liable for any monies incorrectly recovered under the Gift Aid scheme.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like KCM Europe to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. KCM Europe will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 given.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When KCM Europe - Kenneth Copeland Ministries receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
