Going Global

Five Fun Facts from Os Guinness about Christianity being the world’s first global religion…

  1. Jesus of Nazareth has the greatest number of followers of any religion on planet Earth.
  2. The church is the most diverse community on the earth.
  3. The Bible is the most translated book in human history.
  4. Churches are the most numerous social service agencies across the world.
  5. In many parts of the world, the Christian faith is the fastest growing religion and is growing through conversion rather than simply through the birth rate.

Fighting Words

“Some want to live within the sound
Of church or chapel bell;
I want to run a rescue shop,
Within a yard of hell.”

“Difficulties, dangers, disease, death, or divisions don’t deter any but Chocolate Soldiers from executing God’s Will. When someone says there is a lion in the way, the real Christian promptly replies, ‘That’s hardly enough inducement for me; I want a bear or two besides to make it worth my while to go.'”

“Let us not glide through this world and then slip quietly into heaven, without having blown the trumpet loud and long for our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Let us see to it that the devil will hold a thanksgiving service in hell, when he gets the news of our departure from the field of battle.”

What Are We Going To Do Today?

What are we going to do today Daddy?

My son has taken to saying the above most mornings in the past week.
It’s cute. And sweet.

And another insight into how it must be for our Heavenly Father (and why He gives us children).
May our first thoughts, our first prayers when we awaken be that – “What are we going to do today Daddy?”
