“I've been a supporter of Gospel for Asia for several years now, and I must say honestly that they are the best bunch of people I've ever partnered with. They are even like a second family who I pray with and feel I know. I do not exaggerate when I say that as a non-profit charity organization, they have the very highest standards of accountability and cost-effectiveness."
“What our Lord achieves through them every day of every year is mind-bogglingly miraculous. I had supported church and charity before, but I wanted to do more. I remember praying and searching for the Lord to lead me and help me find a missionary organization that would satisfy my highest standards and make every cent of my contribution go the very furthest towards furthering His kingdom here on earth. When I found GFA, I knew I had to look no further.” -Dave
Above is the testimony from my new friend Dave who discovered me through my YouTube videos. Here is the link for Gospel for Asia's website.
The lip of truth shall be established for ever; but a lying tongue is but for a moment. (Proverbs 12:19) Truth wears well. Time tests it, but it right well endures the trial. R; then, I have spoken the truth and have for the present to suffer for it, I must be content to wait. If also I believe the truth of God and endeavor to declare it, I may meet with much opposition, but I need not fear, for ultimately the truth must prevail.
What a poor thing is the temporary triumph of falsehood! "A lying lip is but for a moment!" It is a mere gourd which comes up in a night and perishes in a night; and the greater its development the more manifest its decay. On the other hand, how worthy of an immortal being is the avowal and defense of that truth which can never change; the everlasting gospel, which is established in the immutable truth of an unchanging God! An old proverb saith, "He that speaks truth shames the devil." Assuredly he that speaks the truth of God will put to shame all the devils in hell and confound all the seed of the serpent which now hiss out their falsehoods.
O my heart, take care that thou be in all things on the side of truth, both in small things and great; but specially, on the side of Him by whom grace and truth have come among men! -Charles Spurgeon

The Narrow Road
Read | Matthew 7:13-14
Like many people today, the Israelites in Jesus’ time believed they were destined for heaven. They mistakenly thought that to join God’s family, good works and an intellectual faith were all that He required.
To help us grasp the truth about how to enter His Father’s kingdom, Jesus described two roads leading in opposite directions. One is a broad highway, where most people travel. Theirs is an easy journey, as it requires few commitments and allows all kinds of philosophies. Because just about everything is acceptable, each person is free to be self-indulgent and choose whatever seems best. The broad path promises to give us whatever we desire, but in the end, it delivers nothing of lasting value.
The other road is narrow. It has a small entrance, because there is only one way to be reconciled to God—through faith in Christ. Traveling on this path requires a commitment to the Savior and a lifestyle of dependence, sacrifice, and trust.
Once we belong to Jesus, the Holy Spirit empowers us for everything that is required on the way of righteousness: loving God with our whole heart, loving our neighbors, and carrying out the Lord’s purposes. His plans are to take precedence over our own. In contrast to the disappointments on the broad road, every divine promise is guaranteed.
Each of us must choose which path to take: the wide one that ends in hopelessness and eternal separation from the Lord, or the narrow one leading to life everlasting. If you desire a relationship with God through Jesus, just ask Him. -Charles Stanley
I think of pain too; we can't allow circumstances to control our lives. We must stay focused on the things above.
Colossians: 3. 2. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
Once you have Jesus, focusing on the lesser brings about great misery.
"Good people" don't get to Heaven, only saved ones do. Are you saved from your sins by true faith in Jesus Christ?
