The Way Home

Standing beside Dulce and Janet in the huge Catholic church of Tlalixtac, I decided to just be in the moment, present and taking one step at a time, trying to be humble and full of grace while being introduced to our town’s people in a very public and official way.

Listening to the Word

Keep On Speaking

Job 13,14; Acts 17,18

“…Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.” Acts 18:9, 10

Fear keeps us from speaking God’s word and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah of God. It is the awareness of God’s presence, the great “I AM”, that brings peace and perspective to any fearful situation. God knows those who are his. He knows how many people he has in each city, and he knows and numbers our days. We can rest in peace because God is before us. We overcome by the word of our testimony, not by hiding in silence. Our rest is in God, not in our self-preservation. God’s promise to Paul has been repeated to the saints countless times through the ages. We are God’s messengers, proclaiming his word and living under his mighty hand. Keep on speaking, do not be silent!

“Jesus, thank you for our protection, your encouragement, your Word, and your Spirit’s anointing this day. Fill me with words of life and the boldness to proclaim them.”

We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.–1 Thessalonians 1:3
