Making Disciples of Christ in Ecuador

Why didn't Paul go to Rome?

  • Published in Blog

 

Have you ever wanted to be two places at the same time? What about wanting to spent time with different groups of people but it's just impossible to do it? Paul felt that way and I think that everyone who lives a cross cultural life (whether missionary, businessman, or simply you and your spouse are from different countries) deal with that. The other day I was reading through the book of Romans and something jumped out to me.

A Sorcerer believes!

  • Published in Blog

The other day I was reading a missionary book and ran across a story about a man who practiced sorcery and ended up believing, being baptized, and seeking discipleship from the missionary. The man was really well known in his city. Everyone believed that this man had a lot of power and could really change things. The people probably had some idea that the power he was using wasn't good (it was actually demonic) but it was really undeniable that this power was real. It doesn't take much for a man to claim he has a lot of power but this man was actually able to convince everyone that he was great.

To Each According to his Ability

Hola!  This is a devotional I've been reading from Andrew Murray.  This is the one I read today and it's called Working for God.  All Christians are children of God but we must also be his joyful servants. ~ Karen

 ‘'The kingdom of heaven is as when a man, going into another country, called his own servants, and delivered them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one; to each according to his several ability.’'—Matt. 25:14

 

In the parable of the talents we have a most instructive summary of our Lord’s teaching in regard to the work He has given to His servants to do. He tells us of His going to heaven and leaving His work on earth to the care of His Church; of His giving every one something to do, however different the gifts might be; of His expecting to get back His money with interest; of the failure of him who had received least; and of what it was that led to that terrible neglect.

Specific Prayer

  • Published in Blog

 

Matthew 7:7–11

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!"


This is quite an amazing promise. Let’s lay it out this way:

Asking = it being given to you, receiving it
Seeking= finding
Knocking = it being opened to you
