A Mission Field in the journey of Cancer

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus sake. II Corinthians 4:3-5

Today as I was speaking with my sweet radiation nurse about how I was doing. She asked about the upcoming ladies luncheon; the menu and that she'd like to see photos next week. With this OPEN DOOR...I told her that we are having a special meeting the following week and that the gentleman's wife is our speaker at the luncheon. I handed her the testimony tract of our speaker and was pleased that she asked to keep it...My hearts desire.

I then offered the same to another person with rejection. Saddened my heart...and I had to remind myself ...because we can take rejection so personal...

They are not rejecting you...they are rejecting the wonderful light of the glorious gospel...the very truth that bestows the most magnificent GRACE of life.

Servants..for Christ sake. For HIM...to give on HIS behalf...HOPE for others.

But, I thank the LORD for the opportunity...for the time at hand to be faithful to try and reach others with this Glorious Gospel of Christ.

And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not. Acts 28:24

New faces...New places...at such a time...

to serve on...A Mission Field

even in the midst of a journey with cancer.

You are being a faithful servant...and that pleases God. I have a friend who has consistently rejected the Good News, and even ridiculed (imagine that!)Jesus. It hurt me, but you are right, they are rejecting God, not me. Still, my heart aches for her salvation. I just keep on being her friend, and maybe someday... Have a blessed Easter, sister in Christ!
