The Harvest

After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Go your way; behold, I send you …

After the Storm

Father Kowalski and Sister Francesca were saying the morning prayers. "You look tired, Father," Sister Francesca remarked when they were finished. "Didn't you have a good night's rest?" He smiled. "How could I sleep with all that racket?" "Oh, you mean the rain?" "It was more like a storm. It kept me awake for a …

Light in Darkness

The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple - Psalm 119:130 I don't like darkness. It's heavy, oppressive and downright scary. It makes you feel helpless, vulnerable and causes you to stumble because you can't see where you're going or what's in front of you. What gets rid of the darkness? …

Puah’s Calling

"Are you happy you came to church this morning?" Tobias asked Puah when she went over to see him after having lunch with her grandmother. "Yes. I especially liked the Sabbath School. You're a great teacher, Tobias." "Thank you. I thought you would have participated, though." "I told you that I only wanted to listen …

Tobias and Puah Are Interrupted

"I brought you something," Puah said when she went over to Tobias' flat the following evening. She gave him something wrapped in aluminum foil. "What is it?" he asked. "A large slice of cake." His eyebrows. "Cake. Thank you. And thank your grandmother too." "My grandmother didn't make it," Puah informed him. "I did." "You …

Finding Nata

Nata. Dakar. The date.  These were scrawled at the back of the photo I held in my hand.  I found it among my brother’s belongings.  An intrepid missionary, he had traveled to Senegal to share the Gospel.  He died shortly after his return.  Who was Nata?  Finding Nata soon became an obsession. 52 Words

Misguided Service

I was reading my Sabbath school quarterly on my phone one afternoon and there was a section which talked about misguided service.  Many of us tend to let our service for Jesus getin the way of our relationship with Him.  We are so busy feeding people, ministering to them, witnessing to them that we don't …

God’s Mercy

No sin is so great that God's mercy can't cover it.  The apostle Paul can testify to that.  "This is a true saying, and everyone should believe it: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--and I was the worst of them all.  But that is why God had mercy on me, so that …

Rejoice!

He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay - Matthew 28:6 This morning I read three Gospel accounts of the resurrection of Jesus. The empty tomb meant that Jesus had risen as He had said He would. We can always trust in His Word and …

God Lifted Me Up

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire.  He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.  He has given me a new song to …
