I Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the HOPE that is in you with meekness and fear.
Priorities: Erin and I were talking the other day about just how little time we have. Of course, we all have the same number of hours in our day, but it is how we use them that counts. When we sit back and look at our activities, which ones really matter? As we list them: language studies, group Bible study, church services, kid’s activities, construction on the church property. The list could easily be doubled. We have been surprised at just how busy life is here in Honduras. Matthew 6:33 addresses the heart of the matter. Seek God’s kingdom first!
One of the things that is heavy on our hearts is building the kingdom. And how does that happen? It is simple: more souls. As we filter through the activities of our lives, we must determine to focus primarily on things that contribute to building God’s kingdom. It is true that some of the activities already mentioned do contribute to kingdom work. Like you, there are essential personal activities that need to be done, but we must not lose focus on kingdom work.
An unfortunate event happened last month when a wall fell on our large church bus while it was parked. In early October, there was a tropical storm that passed through our area and dumped a lot of rain. The result of all the water was that a cinder block wall collapsed onto the front of our bus. It was already in disrepair and in need of some attention, and the wall falling on it rendered it unstable.
A bus in our ministry is foundational! With this tool, we can build the kingdom by transporting many people to church and exposing new people to the gospel. It will take about $2,000 to repair the bus and get it back on the road. Is it worth it? Is it important? With a kingdom-work focus, that is an easy question to answer! Please consider helping get the bus back on the road.
