What is happening to our faith?
As we continue through the beginning of what may be another unusual year, I am struck by the perseverance of God's people around the world, remaining faithful to the Lord. Pastors are preparing sermons to encourage believers in their faith, parents are training their children in the things of the Lord, missionary continue to serve on the mission field, and Christ-followers around the globe are growing in their faith.
Although the pandemic has presented new challenges to our faith, God's Word has remained the same, the power of the gospel has not diminished, and the Lord continues to build His church.
"The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the, proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."
One aspect of missionary life is the challenge and reward of depending on God's people to participate in ministry with us through regular giving. We currently have 44 couples and individuals and 4 churches that regularly give to ABWE in order to support the work that we are doing at ICSB. What a privilege to be surrounded by a team of believers, willing to walk with us so faithfully. As this passage reminds us, the good that radiates from Christians is one instrument that the Lord uses to care for the family of believers.
ABWE President Paul Davis reported in his January newsletter, "I am humbled that through these unprecedented times, we've seen God's protection; we've seen the highest giving year in our mission's history, and we've seen our missionary team grow for the second consecutive year!"
