J.J. Rouse, in Pioneer Work in Canada, tells the story of a man converted in his hometown of Oro, Ontario. He described the man as “a noted character, who for years had been a ringleader in…general mischief. It was in the autumn, and the threshing of the grain was taking place…There would be from 12 to 15 men engaged on a crew to do the work and they deliberately…made all kinds of attacks on their old pal. All this had no effect except to cause our friend to rejoice that he was ‘counted worthy to suffer shame for His name’ (Acts 5:41). But Satan will never give up until resisted by the Word...

Sometimes younger believers don’t engage in witnessing because older Christians around them haven’t given them a good example. This is often true, but it is still not a good reason to be a dumb priest (see 1 Pet 2:9). If you have no good examples, then be one. Timothy, a young man, was called on to be an example (see 1 Tim 4:12). The best way to learn evangelism is to do it. Memorize some good gospel passages. Practice explaining how to be saved with a Christian friend. Pray for opportunities. Then go with the confidence that the Lord is with you (Mt 28:20), the Spirit has gone before you to...

William Booth (1829–1912), founder of The Salvation Army, labored for the Lord among the poor and destitute in London’s East End. He would “stumble home night after night haggard with fatigue; often his clothes were torn and bloody bandages swathed his head where a stone had struck,” wrote his wife Catherine. “‘Not called!’ did you say? ‘Not heard the call,’ I think you should say,” wrote Booth. “Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear Him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for...

Peace has been defined as the “tranquil state of the soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fears nothing from God and is content with its lot.” It is a sense of well-being, enjoyed by resting in Christ who “is our peace” (Eph 2:14). It is both through justification (Rom 5:1), and reconciliation that the Lord Jesus Christ “made peace through the blood of His cross” (Col 1:20). He personally “came and preached peace” both to the Jews who were “near” and to the “far off” Gentiles (Eph 2:17) and we ought to follow His example: “preaching peace by Jesus Christ: He is Lord of all”...

George David writes: “In order to make disciples of others we need to be practicing disciples ourselves…This is what is implied by the words of our Lord Jesus in Matthew 5:13-14 when He says, “You are the salt of the earth…you are the light of the world.” The “you” in these verses is not a singular you, but a plural, corporate you. You as a community of disciples have to be the salt of the earth. You as a community of disciples need to be the light of the world. To be salt and light in a particular place involves what is called non-verbal communication—communication without words by...

“I being in the way, the Lord led me” (Gen 24:27). I was packing for a coastal boat trip in Iceland. With a prayer for guidance, I was selecting some leaflets that explained God’s good news when my eye fell on some French ones. I took them with me…After steaming round the coast for some days, the shipwrecked crew of a French trawler was taken on board. I got in touch with the captain and asked him how many the crew numbered. “Twenty-three,” he replied. I told him I had something for them to read, but was not sure if I had enough. I went below and hunted for the French tracts. There were...
