Article of the Month
If you have read my book, Ten Life Choices you know that one of the ten choices highlighted is choose surrender. Out of the ten (Honesty, Grace, Forgiveness, Truth, Surrender, Empowerment, Community, Worship, Intimacy, Availability) I personally find surrender the most challenging (those of you who know me best are saying "Of course you do Bob, you like to be in control!).
The truth is that as time marches forward, it seems that more and more of life is outside of the realm of my control and I am called upon to surrender (health, finances, our nation's morality, etc.,). In the book I remind the reader that surrender has two parts, denying self and trusting God. What I have come to understand more recently is that the second part actually makes the first part easier. I am much more likely to deny myself (control, pleasure, getting my way, etc.,) if I TRULY trust God and His plan for my life and future.
Recently I taught a series on the miracles of Jesus. The first miracle covered was the changing of water to wine at Cana. In this miracle what struck me most was the complete surrender on the part of Mary. Of course, Mary had begun her journey with Jesus in complete surrender. When the angel appeared and told her that she was to be with child, though she was still a virgin, her response was "I am the Lord's servant, may your word to me be fulfilled". Complete surrender.
Inmate Ministry Increases during COVID-19
Ten Life Choices was chosen by Prison Fellowship as a curriculum for all inmates entering the US prison system back in 2010. Since that time, inmates receive a letter from Prison fellowship when they enter the system. This letter has resources that are available to the inmates to help them in their spiritual journey. Inmates write to LifeNow ministries to enroll in an 11-week correspondence course. They receive a copy of the book and LifeNow sends out lesson one and begins to disciple and train them. Hundreds of inmates have been discipled since 2010. In the past 10-15 inmate per week have written to LifeNow. During COVID-19 most spiritual programs in the prisons have been suspended and inmates have more time on their hands and less resources. In the past 6 months we have averaged 25-30 requests per week! This is a wonderful opportunity. Please pray as we impact more incarcerated men and women with the message of Choose Life! We are pleased to announce that Dave Everts has joined LifeNow as a volunteer to help respond to the increase in inmate correspondence. Dave has a heart for the Lord and for those who are incarcerated.
It costs about $15 to mail the book and 11 lessons. Would you like to help?
