Pastors' Meeting

I just returned from the Czech/Slovak Baptist pastors' meeting in Slovakia. It was a great time. I was greatly encouraged by the passion of some of the preachers there, their commitment to the Scriptures, and enjoyed God's amazing creation there in the High Tatras.

Praise the Lord!!!

Truth-Seekers or Self-Deceivers?

Some people will do anything to have an experience with God in our day and time. If you don't think so, watch this video.

These people would probably profess to be seeking the truth. They are obviously seeking an experience with God. But it can't be done apart from His Word, the Word of Truth. Experiencing God is not a dance. It is a relationship that takes place through communion with Him in prayer and in the study and meditation of His Word. Whereby the Holy Spirit opens the heart and eyes to see and understand His truth through which He moves your will to do His will and walk in His ways. That is experiencing God.

Who Should Serve on the Mission Field

Here is a quote I came across a while back that we should all ask ourselves.

A missionary society wrote to David Livingstone and asked, "Have you found a good road to where you are? If so, we want to know how to send other men to join you."

Livingstone wrote back, "If you have men who will come only if they know there is a good road, I don't want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all."
