Prayer Watch: Reach Those with no Written Language

 

“’Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in?
And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?
And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?
As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’”
Romans 10:13 – 15 (NIV)

“How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion,
‘Your God reigns!’”
Isaiah 52:7 (NIV)

I’ve come across some comments from mother tongue translators who have completed the MAST training and translated Scripture into their own languages. And, they got me to thinking . . .

Mom on a Mission

“My name is Brigite, and I accepted Christ as my Lord less than a year ago. I am 21 years old, and I have a one-year-old daughter. Her name is Ercilia, and she is my great joy.

“Being a mother is a great responsibility, and caring for Ercilia requires most of my time. But when I was invited to participate in a Bible translation workshop to help translate the Holy Word into my language, I knew I must do it.

Prayer Watch: POD Prints Translated Scripture

 

“The words ‘it was credited to him’ were written not for him [Abraham] alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.

“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
Romans 4:23 - 5:5 (NIV)

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.
1 Peter 3:15 (NIV) 

Did you know that “Lent” means spring? You know, like new life? New beginnings?

Lent represents the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert prior to His earthly ministry and His obedience that took Him all the way to the cross and the grave. It is now a time for our repentance and preparation for Jesus’ death and resurrection. Lent is taking on new meaning for me this year.

Oh, I’ve participated in Advent—preparation for Jesus’ birth. I’ve done Bible studies and read devotionals for Advent. We’ve had the Advent wreath on our dining table, lit the candles, and read from a book focused on Advent. But Lent?

Until recently I had no idea that it represented Jesus’ 40-days spent in the desert. The Holy Spirit led Jesus to the desert. Jesus fasted and spent time with His Holy Father. And Jesus was tempted—He did not sin. He was the lamb without spot or blemish, sacrificed for you and me.

Our Scripture readings above are all about the hope we now have in Jesus—our salvation, our justification, even our peace with God are all because of what Jesus accomplished while on earth.
