He is no fool

over fifty years ago, on October 28, 1949: Jim Elliot, one young American Christian, challenged by the needs of many mission fields, writes in his journal the most famous of his sayings:

nofool

Just over six years later, as one of a team of missionaries to Ecuador’s Auca Indians, on Sunday, January 8, 1956, Jim lays down his life for his Lord and Savior, when, on a small stretch of river beach in the Amazon jungle, Auca spears and arrows end his earthly life and that of his four companions. The whole story can be read in the breathtaking accounts penned by his widow, Elizabeth Elliot, in “Through Gates of Splendour” and “Shadow of the Almighty”.

Jim had discovered the law of sowing and reaping...

widetowerIf  not, the Bible has news for you!

Nowadays a lot is being said and written about “discipleship”. That is because our Lord himself had such a lot to say on the subject. While much of what is circulating is good, we don’t usually get our Lord’s real perspective, that is, we’re usually just having a great time in the shallows, ignoring the Master’s call to launch out into the deep. Consequently, our “nets” remain empty. In other words, our towers are not built and our wars are not won.

A QUESTION OF RELIGION? EMOTIONALLY CHARGED?

INTELLECTUALLY REASONED? OR SIMPLY

A Living Relationship?

You would have thought that two centuries of devastating attacks on RELIGION by men-of-REASON, would have done it in by now, but no! ‘Religion’ is alive and kicking, all over the world. Even in those countries where the forces of ‘reason’, ‘secularism’, ‘evolutionism’, etc., made the greatest impact, emptying pews and pulpits alike, there is quite a surge of all kinds of religious movements, whether they consist of sectarians, occultists, New Age or even satanists. It certainly teaches us that MAN is a ‘religious animal’ by nature. Some are ready to commit suicide in the name of religion...

He brought us out to bring us in

slavery in Egypt? Perish the memory! Thank God, He brought us out. Not that this wilderness is so wonderful, but we’re coping. And surely, it is worth being free, even though we’ll be trudging around in circles through this desert until the day we die.”

Resignation and all that.       

We may suppose that most of the Israelites thought and reasoned like that. They had become accustomed to the “status quo” of the desert. God’s promises of a “land flowing with milk and honey” seemed increasingly unreal and distant. They had learned to live with their present circumstances. And surely, these were a lot better than the terrible oppression under the pharaohs!

The more we look at Israel’s history, the more we are likely to discover our own mirror image, that of present day ...
