“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.”
I want for the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart to be acceptable in the Lord’s sight. Though I could never accomplish this in my own strength, the Lord is my strength and my redeemer. Because of the change He has brought about in my life through the cross of Christ, I am acceptable in His sight. Praise the Lord!
“After these things were ended, Paul purposed in the spirit, when he had passed through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, saying, After I have been there, I must also see Rome.”
Paul had just spent two years in Ephesus, and during that time “all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus” (Acts 19:10). He had just witnessed the Word of God prevail over them that used curious arts, causing them to repent and believe (Acts 19:18-20).
All of this success, however, didn’t satisfy Paul with the advancement of the gospel. In verse 21, he purposes to go back to Jerusalem and after that go and see Rome. He wanted to further advance the gospel! He wanted to take the same Word that changed so many lives in Ephesus to the city of Rome to transform the lives of the people there as well!
I desire to be like Paul, constantly thinking of what I can do and where I can go to get the gospel out!
It is with great excitement that we unveil our website, Reaching China!
We can only begin to express how great the Lord has been to us in both bringing us together and bringing us this far in preparing to do full-time gospel ministry in China. We eagerly anticipate the many great things that the Lord will continue to do in and through our lives to bring glory to His name! With this short initial post, we hope to begin chronicling all that He has done and will do to make His name great in the great nation of China.
“All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name. For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.”
