How Much Longer Do We Have?
A truly heart-breaking, tear-jerking story of a woman struggling with the fact that her baby boy only has a couple years left to live. Allison Muedder takes us through her journey thus far fighting for joy as she sees her son suffer with Hunter Syndrome. Despite the heavy trial she is facing, she reminds us of the joy we can find in Christ. This article encourages us to take the sorrow we may be feeling now, and use it to turn ourselves to face the greatest joy that we have in Christ. A devastating story turned into an encouragement to find joy amidst the trials that we may face.
In this daunting and eye-opening excerpt from Pastor John Piper’s message, we are reminded of just the sheer length of eternity. We often forget that there is an eternity after the momentary lives that we live, and dependent on whether we truly believe the gospel or not, the destinations will be different. This puts into perspective just how important it is for us to share the gospel, not tomorrow, not next week, but today and right now. Every second we waste is risking the life of the people that we love to be spent in hell for eternity. It’s not that they suffer for 500 years or even a 1000 and then after that, it’s nothing or they get to go back up to heaven; it is an eternity spent in torture forever and ever. A truly convicting article and reminder of the importance of time and just how fleeting it truly is. Definitely worth a read.

“Pastoral care is evangelizing Christians, and evangelism is pastoring non-Christians. Once we grasp this essential unity we can properly pursue both disciplines to enrich the church and to reach the world.” Oftentimes, too many people get the definition of evangelism mixed up. They often only limit it to just the actual verbal sharing of the gospel. However, although that is true, evangelizing encompasses more than that and this article gives us a glimpse of what that should look like.
“He doesn’t send us to places just to do work. Anyone can go to a different country and do work. But our job is to spread the gospel to those who don’t know Him.”
