Proud of My Son Josiah

I am proud of my oldest son, Josiah.  Josiah has had a heart to give Bibles to nations that lack the Word of God.  He has been looking for ways to raise money to send to missions groups that give Bibles to the lost and to Christians to help them grow.  He came up with the idea to sell baked goods (that my loving wife labored over) and he and my wife set up at a local produce market to sell the baked goods all for missions.

In total he raised $74 for missions!  I am proud of him and his desire to give to missions.  Missions is the heart of God.  God Himself is the greatest missionary in sending His Son that He promised to Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:15) and fulfilled in the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:14).  The Spirit of God is the great convictor of sins as He convicts the world (John 16:8-11) to bring sinners to salvation through faith in Christ (John 6:44-45).  Our God reaches out to us.  We don’t “find Jesus” but He finds us and saves us.  He draws us and He convicts us and He regenerates us.  It is His work (John 1:12-13)!

I rejoice that my son is learning to have the heart of God for the lost.  I pray that he will be a bold witness for the glory of Christ all his life.
