Show me the one, show me the way, help me to know just how to share the love You gave.

Look around you! There is probably someone who could use some love! All too often, we find ourselves surrounded by people who are going through some difficult times. Perhaps you are! Whether it's unemployment, family problems, health problems, depression, loneliness, or whatever, all of us would like some relief from what we are going through. We need to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

And there is! The Light of Lights, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is willing and more than able to lift us from our darkness, into His pure and safe haven of light. He promises His love and presence to heal and deliver, to strengthen and help, all those who call on Him.

Like the beam from the mighty lighthouse, that directs ships safely back to harbor, His Light is there to show us the way to Him, for Jesus is truly the Way, the Truth and the Life.

It is my prayer that this site encourages you to reflect His light to those around you who need to know Him. Let Him use you to share His love. And as you embark on this remarkable journey, please share your experiences so that all of us can grow together in our quest to reach all the world, lest anyone should perish.

May God richly bless you!

All It Took Was A Bowl Left Behind

It really doesn't take much to leave a legacy. It doesn't even have to be a grand thing. It can be anything, really. But what matters is the thought that goes into it.
In the Welcome Home video, there is a scene where a prisoner in a Korean cell is carving something onto his food bowl. At first, we're not aware of what he is writing. But it becomes clear later on. After he is killed, his guard comes into the cell and picks up the bowl. He reads it.

It is in the Korean language, and we see him writing it on his arm, secretly. Then we see him reading it in a room, and he gets emotional. It is John 3:16 in the Bible.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son,
that whoever believes in Him will not perish,
but have eternal life.
This passage went straight to his heart and soul, and weeping, he gave himself to Jesus. He realized what he had done, in killing the prisoner, and he suddenly realized that Jesus was killed too, for us. As our Savior, Jesus gave His own life so we can have eternal life.
Later, we see him in heaven, with his head on Jesus' shoulder, weeping. Images of Jesus being crucified flashes before him, and he realizes how much Jesus suffered for him.
All it took was that Christian prisoner leaving behind a carved food bowl with Scripture on it. He planted the seed. It was his intention to share God's Word of salvation, even through death. If he hadn't, then the guard would not have been saved, and gone to heaven at the rapture.
What about you and me? Are we intentional in leaving behind the Word of God for others to read? Is it our desire that others be saved? It doesn't have to be much. The giving of ourselves by loving others gives a strong message of God's love for all of us. And sharing His Word, through the Holy Spirit's guidance, is powerful. You won't know until later if your efforts helped in leading a person to the saving grace of Jesus. A grand reunion is awaiting us in heaven! Let's get busy and plant those seeds!
