|In 2 Corinthians 4:15, Paul has been talking about
the conflict between the false teachers and his own
work, and he writes,
"All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that
is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving
to overflow to the glory of God."
MITT is here so that the message of God's grace — his
goodness extended to those who do not deserve it — will
reach more and more people. We want MITT to grow, not
because we want to run a large ministry, but because
billions of people have not yet heard, and millions need
to be trained.
We want to see the people thankful. We don't want our
brothers and sisters to run up big student loan debt so
they can be trained. We want them to receive quality
teaching from some of the most anointed teachers in the
world, and be thankful to God.
And at the end of the day, we want them to praise our
"Let them give thanks to the LORD for his
unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, for
he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good
things" (Ps 107:8-8 NIV).
This is why we do what we do.
