K.P.'s Corner

I used to go to our library to look for materials and references. But now, instead of spending hours looking through books, I can find online information within a few seconds—from 10,000 books. We used to get 3 or 5 or 10 television channels; now there are 2 million! Maybe someday you can just think it and your teeth will be brushed!

So many things in our lives have changed. Yet our lives have become more complicated, not simpler. With all the conveniences, are you finding your life more at peace?

In this climate, it takes a deliberate decision to follow the Lord. How do we follow the Lord faithfully?

When Jesus called His disciples, His statement was very simple: “Come, follow Me.”

It’s a very clear message. The thing I have to remind myself every day is that I need to follow the Lord. Rather than the work of ministry or what I can get out of it, it’s the Lord I am following.

It is the same call for our missionaries in Asia. Although they live in a culture that feels like another world from ours, they still need our prayers and partnership to stay strong in this spiritual journey. I thank you for standing with them—and for being part of so many changing lives!

What a privilege to know that through your gifts and prayers, you affect the lives of people like Gurdeep, once lost and hurting and now alive in Christ. You’re joining hands with missionaries like Grishma, who went boldly into a slum to bring the Light of the world.

It is a continuous journey of saying goodbye to this world and choosing a life of eternal value. The more we do that, the more we walk into the world of knowing Him. May the Lord help us to hear that call every single day: “Come, follow Me.”
