A Great Harvest
May 25, 2012
What does it feel like to be in Africa? At least to us, it feels like we have landed right back in the middle of a vast field of wheat. The wheat is ripe and ready to be harvested and brought into the storehouse. Only that the "wheat" in Africa is priceless human beings, the ones for whom Jesus Christ gave His life. And the "'harvest" is when they come to Christ, and are brought into the storehouse of God's kingdom. And God tells us that when that happens, the angels throw a great big party (OK, it says "There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents" (Luke 15:10), but you get the idea... imagine the joy over many who repent!)
People here are so open to the good news of how to have a new life through Christ! Just this past week, Mallory and I spoke to about 20 schools [in almost every case, to the whole school... imagine doing that in America!]. We spoke on the theme of the book of Romans: "The righteous shall live by faith" (Rom. 1:17). In response, thousands of young men and women came to Christ! All this is a gift from God, who is the only One who can change people's lives: "No man can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him..." (John 6:44). Let's rejoice with the angels in heaven... and with God Himself.
Please join us for special, daily prayer for these new believers, that they become true disciples of Christ, taking up our challenge to "read the Bible and pray at least 30 minutes a day"... including joining us on Wednesday, May 30 for a Day of Prayer (setting aside a special time to pray and a day of fasting for those who can).
