Spiritual Famine

The other day, A. came to a class that is usually just for the American workers. He’s read John and most of Acts now, but the class moved really quick, and the English was pretty sloppy. He told me on the phone that night that he was frustrated because he didn’t understand more of it. I told him not to worry, that his English slang will get better when he gets to America, and that I have a habit of speaking too quickly. “It’s not that,” he said, “I just couldn’t follow all the Bible references. I don’t know my Bible well enough. That’s why I’m gonna start reading five chapters everyday.” It’s been awesome to see A. eat up all the Bible that he can in a short time. Tonight he told me, “I’m leaving soon, and I’m not sure how much access I’ll have to the internet for a while. You need to give me a plan so that I can keep reading. It doesn’t matter. I’ll take my Bible with me everywhere.”

Imagine living without absolute truth. Imagine never really knowing ANYTHING – right and wrong, the existence of God, the beginning of the universe, the meaning of life… and then imagine finding the “Answer Source” – the living well of absolute truth! If physically starving people should move the church, how much more a spiritual famine in the world’s largest nation? There’s millions that have never even had a bite…
