I got the news from Ps Robin Johnson that he was robbed in Cambodia while doing God’s work. Praise the Lord he is well and not injured. May the work of God continue to flourish through his life. That reminds us about Paul’s letter to the Corinthians in 2Co 4:8-9 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; .
Dear beloved, I appeal to you to uphold those who are in the mission field. Hostilities towards God’s people are real. For this reason our Lord Jesus charged His disciples before sending them out saying Mat 10:16 "Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.
Seeing the soon coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, let us set our priorities in response to His call. Isa 6:8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here I am! Send me."
Hear how He lamented in Mat 9:37-38 "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest."
Lord, give us a heart of passion for the lost. Bless those who are in the harvesting field, be it local or foreign land. May You protect them from all evils and dangers. In Jesus most precious Name we pray, Amen.
