David Brainerd– Some Pretty Good Quotes

+ CrossQuotes +

Oh, how precious is time, and how it pains me to see it slide away, while I do so little to any good purpose.

Be careful to make a good improvement of precious time.

I care not where I go, or how I live, or what I endure so that I may save souls. When I sleep I dream of them; when I awake they are first in my thoughts.

All my desire was the conversion of the heathen… I declare, now I am dying, I would not have spent my life otherwise for the whole world.

Here am I, send me; send me to the ends of the earth; send me to the rough, the savage pagans of the wilderness; send me from all that is called comfort on earth; send me even to death itself, if it be but in Thy service, and to promote Thy kingdom.

This morning…

World Changer Wednesday-John G. Paton

Pastor Jonathan Lee


What do you get when you put Indiana Jones, John the Baptist, and a missionary together? You get John G. Paton. A man who was willing to go to an island where the missionaries before him went and were killed and eaten by the islanders within hours of their landing. If ever there has been an autobiography that read like an adventure novel, it is that of John G. Paton. Though his account is exciting to read, his faith despite difficult situations and his love for Jesus stand far above the adventure. He begins his autobiography by saying, “What I write here is for the glory of God” and truly his life was one lived for God’s glory.

A Biblical ‘Rule of Life’ for 2018

Reflections on God's Word

1 John 3:23   And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us.

As Mike and I reach the end of another year’s journey through God’s Word, I marvel at the theme that reoccurs through many biblical exhortations: Trust God!

One strong message God has directed toward me since this past summer rings: Be still! Know that I am God (Ps 46:10).  To a fault, I de-FAULT to thinking (as opposed to feeling and doing).  As a result, not realizing I lack the necessary data, I run myself ragged like a caged rat wearing grooves on his treadmill.  Round and round I go, trying to think myself toward a solution.  Imploring God for an answer brings me His counter solution, “Give it up, Maria.  Stop!  Lay it aside.  What you need more than an answer…

Book Review: The Satisfied Soul by John Piper

Corporate Church

At first glance, The Satisfied Soul by John Piper looks to be a devotional. On the front cover is the notice that there are 120 daily meditations. This is true, but the daily meditations are not actually devotional material. Instead, they are what best could be described as articles.


That is the best word I know to describe them. It is almost like they were destined for a newspaper or blog site and then got compiled into a book. I suppose when you are Piper, this is your natural way of writing. Regardless, the topics that are covered are quite broad. They range from racism to depression to self-control to pray. Throughout the book, Piper’s goal is to show the supremacy of God in all of life.

After reading the book, I can definitely say that he accomplished his goal. There is no one who has done more for the…

Changing the World One Street Corner at a Time – Street Preaching in the Philippines – Antipolo & Baguio City

Street Preaching in the Philippines

 photo 17635376_10154409847296765_7444417032291410301_o_zpsadmdpjsl.jpg

The Bible says to GO into ALL the world and PREACH the gospel to EVERY creature! Jesus died for everyone and God is calling all men everywhere to repent. Since the heart of God is that none should perish but that all should come to repentance, that needs to be our heart too. I was blessed with an opportunity to preach the gospel in the streets of the Philippines! I had not been to this country for about ten years.

I was lecturing for two weeks for a Youth with a Mission Discipleship Training School. However, part of being a disciple is actively sharing your faith. Therefore, we would take the students out for some street outreaches.

Make A Progressive Resolution

Tomi Shane Ng

Often times, we make New Year’s Resolution and yet easily give up on it. The reason is we pressure ourselves to accomplish it within 2 to 4 weeks in January.

But in reality, it should be a progressive resolution.

How do we do it?

1. Focus on 1 or 2 – We take one or 2 steps at a time.

2. Time Frame is whole year round. I remember I developed my exercise habit in November 2014. I learned to eat less last April 2017 that leads to more or less 15 pounds loss.

Choose Progressive Resolution over New Year’s Resolution. A Blessed 2018 for everyone!

“Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

[1 Corinthians 10:31]

Poclaim God’s Glory

Whatever? Whatever. Let your message reflect his glory. “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16 niv).

Let your salvation reflect God’s glory. “Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory” (Ephesians 1:13–14).

Let your body reflect God’s glory. “You are not your own… Glorify God in your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19–20).

Your struggles. “These sufferings of ours are for your benefit. And the more of you who are won to Christ, the more there are to thank him for his great kindness, and the more the Lord is glorified” (2 Corinthians 4:15 tlb…
