Prayer For Missionary’s

May 2, 2008

When I read a book called “Jesus Freaks” I learned so much about what we take for granted.

There are Christians today who suffer for the sake of Christ. To bring faith into other country’s that make Churches, Bible’s, and even Christians Illegal. Even so we take for granted what horrific things happen to Missionary’s worldwide, to bring the gospel into other peoples lives. It’s been happening since Jesus was crucified. We should pray for those who are helping others get to know Christ. Many people now are being persecuted, Jailed, and even killed because they serve Christ.

So please keep them in your prayers.

Afraid Of What?

April 30, 2008

This is a story from a book called “Jesus Freaks” That I have loved since I have read it: Jack Vinson: 1931

The bandit told the missionary “I am going to kill you. Aren’t you afraid?”

Jack Vinson Replyed simply “Kill me, if you wish. I will go straight to God.”

Jacks courage inspired his friend, E. H. Hamilton to write this poem:

Afraid? Of what?

To feel the spirits glad release? To pass from pain to perfect peace? To strife and strain of life to cease?

Afraid of — that? Afraid Of What?

Afraid to see the saviors Face, to hear his welcome, and to trace? The glory gleam from wounds of grace?

Afraid of—that? Afraid of what?

A flash, A crash, a pierced heart; Darkness, light, O heavens art! A wound of his a counter part!

Afraid—of that? Afraid of What?

To do by death what life could not. Baptize with blood a stony plot, Till souls shall blossom from the spot?

Afraid— of that?
