Lo and Behold!

I’ve heard it all my life, but when I heard the expression again the other day, I paused to reflect on the exact meaning of, “Lo and behold”! It’s actually an exclamation meant to draw attention to something. It is used especially to announce things that are considered important, thus it is often written with an exclamation mark. The word “lo” is a shortening of “look”. So, “lo and behold” has the meaning of “look! – behold”!. “Lo” is also akin to “O”, and has been in use since the first…

LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION

Why did Jesus teach us to pray, “Lead us not into temptation.” Does God ever lead us into temptation? Doesn’t our fleshly nature and the devil lead us into temptation?…

PRAYING SCRIPTURE

Have you noticed that as He prayed on the cross, Jesus prayed scripture? He repeatedly prayed to God in the exact words of Scripture. In fact he prayed so much of the 22nd Psalm that a friend of mine believes He quoted the entire psalm in prayer, and the Gospel writers recorded enough of it for us to understand that. Praying Scripture can be a wonderful practice.

You can memorize a verse and pray…

How are you carrying the Generational Baton?

I was recently thinking about the many track meets my husband and I attended for our sons and my grandchildren. If you are like most grandparents you too have attended many track meets. One of the many events at a track meet is the 4 x 400 relay where the runner passes the baton to the next runner and then the next runners.

When my husband and I became parents the generational baton was passed on to us. Then as we became grandparents, the baton was passed to our son and his wife.…

Protection from what?

Protection from What?

© 2014 By Jim Reapsome

My missionary friend’s email gave me some fairly typical prayer requests: Pray for seekers. Pray for safety and protection. He provided details for his valid needs around his life and work.

Pray is critical for him and his family. It’s just as critical for them as the communication between airline pilots and air traffic controllers. At the same time, it seems that some of these missionary prayer emails fall short of the prayer…

Worship -- the great adventure

If we confine worship to Sunday church services, ritual overshadows relationship. To walk with God 24/7 is life's greatest adventure!



“The worship of God is not a rule of safety—it is an adventure of the spirit, a flight after the unattainable.”

- Alfred North Whitehead



What does your heart ache for—really, truly, above all else?

Does your inner being yearn for a close walk with God?

Does your soul long for Jesus to be real to you?



Have you declared…

Entrusting Our Lives

I hope this letter finds your new year going well. I am recovering from Achilles tendon surgery which, of course, comes at the very worst time of year for this busy ministry. I am sure you can identify with that!

Yet, I am finding whole new ways to pray and trust our Father as I am more “dependent” than usual. Which brings me to my word of encouragement for you, from Andrew Murray.

He was a pastor in South Africa in the 19th century. Full of excitement about his work and love…

Top Books on Prayer

There are volumes of books and reading material on all subjects and matters; good and bad.  Sir Francis Bacon once wrote, "some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention."



With hundreds of books on the subject of prayer, ranging from how-to books, to books that answer why…

WITHOUT CEASING

Scripture commands us to pray continually. What does that mean? I have heard preachers say, (I have said this myself.) "This means we are to maintain an attitude of prayer.” But I do not think that is a practical way of thinking about prayer. Prayer is communication with God. It is asking Him for something or thanking Him, confessing sin or lavishing praise on His Name. It may even be listening to His still small voice. But it is always…

NORTH KOREA: DOZENS DETAINED, 33 TO BE EXECUTED



by Elizabeth Kendal



On 27 February South Korean Baptist missionary Kim Jung-wook (50) fronted a North Korean press conference in Pyongyang to 'confess' to his crimes and plead for mercy. For seven years, Kim Jung-wook had been providing food, clothing and sanctuary to North Korean refugees and job-seekers in the Chinese border city of Dandong.…
