Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
By the time you hear this message, the American presidential election will be over and will be history. If the nation has determined to stay the present course, the future for freedom, especially religious freedom looks dark indeed. And if we voted to change course, then we need to heed the words of a great old saint who said; “walk softly – speak tenderly, pray ferveantly and don’t run up the stairs”.
Whatever happens during the election, God has not changed, and the future is still as bright as the promises he has given us. The challenge to preach the Gospel unto the entire world is still upon us, and in many places in the world, the world is listening.
I just returned from Ethiopia, where I had the joy of doing the training for a new Bible College. Evangelical churches there are growing at an unprecedented pace. A church of 12 members 4 years ago is now over 500. People from ethnic and religious groups thought unreachable only a few years ago are begging for Bibles. Like the early church, believers are forsaking all to follow Christ.
But whatever the political situation is in this country, the Apostle’s word still stands; “Be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as you know that your labor is not in vain, in the Lord”.
