Trip 39 / Entry 8 / Costanta, Romania

“THIS IS THE FAST THAT I HAVE CHOSEN…”

Yesterday, I had lunch with a thirty-something single female missionary who would love to be married, have a home and a family. This is the ultimate desire of her heart. I know many like this. I also know many couples who live in sub-standard housing, only get electric and water at certain hours of the day or the week. They choose to live in uncomfortable environments – in cultures that are hard to navigate and where bureaucracies are designed to make a missionaries life miserable. Others reside in dangerous and threatening places for the glory of His name.

Note: Joel Osteen will bring in an estimated sixty and 72,000,000 dollars this year.  We are sick from the head to the toes.

 

When I am asked by our pastor to fast by giving up food for a day or coffee for a week, I find it an imposition but when I visit here and other parts of the world I find Christians who have shoe latches that I am not worthy to unloosen. They live a perpetual fast from everything, foods, holidays, and relatives. These people do not walk on water and do not want or expect special recognition yet, in my view, they are the Lord’s portion in the world and in so doing, fill up the sufferings of Christ.

    I agree Tony. I see some people here in Canada who are sacrificing for the Gospel as well – they amaze me.
