“What can I do?”  It’s a question that’s often raised, either in sincere inquiry or more as a statement of inability. It’s not a lack of ability that usually keeps one from being involved as much as it is a lack of desire. There is no one specific ability or talent that God wants in service to Him, as the talents He has blessed us all with, whatever they may be, all have a place of service in His kingdom.

Bible Translation Day

bible translation day

The Bible in our language is something we can take for granted easily. All most of us reading this have to do is pick up our Bible or open WORDsearch and we are reading the Word of God.

Many people groups still don’t have a translation in their own language. Around 180 million people, or 1,900 languages, need Bible translation to begin (wycliffe.org). Having a translation in their own tongue is important in that trying to read Scripture in another language that isn’t their first can limit their understanding. The gospel in their own language can reach into their hearts and change their lives.

Bible translation is hard and long work. In 1966 the Senate passed the resolution for a Bible Translation Day, wanting to honor that work.

See You At the Pole – Never Stop Praying

american-flag-in-the-wind_w490_h346Today Christian students across the country gathered to pray for See You at the Pole™, part of the Global Week of Student Prayer. Since its start in 1990, See You at the Pole has been all about uniting students to pray for their generation. This year’s theme is “Never Stop Praying,” with students interceding for their school, family, friends, and communities.

Even if we aren’t students, we can still participate in and learn from this event. We can pray for the students—that by and through their united prayer, they would witness to non-Christians. We can pray in thanksgiving for the freedom to still participate in this prayer at schools. We can pray for our government, especially with all of the decisions they are currently having to make regarding ISIS and the Ebola outbreak. We can pray for the missionaries and our persecuted brothers and sisters, who are currently suffering for their faith and testimony.

God our Heavenly Father is truly the everlasting God, King above all, Lord forever. We can completely trust Him because He always stays true to His Word and never changes (James 1:17). We change. Sometimes we get tired of waiting for God and we start trying to work things out ourselves, only to end up getting in the way. We realize it when we see the struggles we cause for ourselves. Then we start wondering why God allowed us to fall into the hole we were so anxious to dig.
