Many moons ago there was known an old Negro spiritual whose first line was, “Chillen (children) go where I send thee.” Their songs were simple, but deep, in a way. They related a lot of deep emotion about their faith, lives and needs. This line of music could express what Susana and I have been experiencing. We went to Panama because the Lord urged us to a work he wanted done. Having put those works into motion, He let us know we were wanted in Mexico. We are here now and already making strides in Kingdom work. We live in a beautiful home in a gated community overlooking Lake Chapala, the largest in Mexico, surrounded by impressive mountains. God blessed us with this house.
What’s more important than our amenities is our beginning to experience the fruits of His call. The uppermost issue is that we are His children and His servants. Mere business amid leisure is not enough. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to recognize that time is growing quickly short for this earth as we know it. It was exciting as we spent 4 hours with a couple we didn’t know in a local coffee shop sharing our faith. Last Sunday we attended a local nondenominational church and were approached to begin a Bible study. At the moment we are not convinced, and are praying about it. Bible studies are not really our calling, though we share the Word thoroughly in our home church settings. That is our primary focus, beginning in our own community.
Easter, or as we call it, Resurrection Day shouts loudly of Jesus Christ’s victory for us! Dare we treat this casually, or merely a notable holiday? Our Lord has conveyed to us that the calling of all His born-again believers are His means of reaching the earth with His good news! Salt and light isn’t intended to live life as if it were ‘business as usual.’ The place and consequences for humans are too critical. Remember, He doesn’t want your ability; He wants your availability. When He urges you to do this or say that, respond without hesitation. It pleases Him greatly. Yes, Easter children go.
