Good for My Heart
Some things just do my heart good. They lift my spirits and make me appreciate how good God is to us.
This Veterans Day we heard and saw boatloads of respect and appreciation being extended toward both veterans and
active service personnel. That fits Romans 13:7, “Render therefore to all their due…honor to whom honor.” It is an honor
to recognize and pray for those who sacrifice for the common good.
On the evening of Veterans Day we made a happy trip to Cullman to be with their Primetimers. My assignment was to
speak about seniors and depression. We were warmly welcomed and treated with great kindness. We heard encouraging
stories of how their senior group and youth groups are interacting in ways that build love. Though my topic could have
been depressing, it wasn’t. The group participated with wisdom and courage. Their comments made the lesson more real.
It was one sweet evening.
Some of us are working with Demar Elam, long-time missionary, to strengthen the library at Philippine Theological
College. Just this week, we learned of others who are joining the effort with everything from book donations to gifts of
time and expertise. As much as we appreciate our international students at Heritage Christian, we love faithful works that
educate Christian leaders and encourage gospel preachers within their own cultures. It’s sound stewardship on many
We got emails again last week from alumni celebrating their most recent baptisms. They weren’t bragging, just imitating
Acts 14:27 by reporting “all that God had done with them.” We know it’s God who opens hearts and grants repentance
(Acts 11:18, 2 Timothy 2:25). We know it’s the power of God that works in baptism (Colossians 2:12). But we appreciate
and delight in the good work of those who teach the gospel. It’s so good of God to let us work with Him.
We had a visit at school from an alumnus who serves in East London, South Africa. It was so cool to hear that lovely
Afrikaans accent again. Chris du Preez told of evangelistic campaigns and students being trained to preach at Eastern
Cape Bible College. He told of the latest church planting that is underway. This will be the tenth congregation that he and
his good family have led. Sweet words from sweet people.
We made a hospital visit last week and learned that a stream of others had done likewise. God will bless that kind of
faithful service (Matthew 25:34-40). God will return love for love, only bigger and better. He has more power to bless
than we can even imagine.
Last week a friend shared a photo album from a recent mission trip to Africa. The pictures from Zambia made me want to
go there. The photos from South Africa reminded me of precious times spent with precious people. The scenes and
wildlife were beautiful, but it’s the people who really shine. Africans and Americans working side by side to the glory of
God—what a blessing!
You’ve heard the familiar line, “When you see something, say something.” That applies to more than just preventing
abuse and other criminal behavior. When we see something good, pleasant, and God-honoring, we need to commend and
encourage that effort. We need to share that good news with others who will also be encouraged by it (Hebrews 10:24).
