Helpful resources for the Christian Life, the Christian home, and the local church
Here are exciting stories from the lives of men and women who took a courageous stand by faith for Jesus Christ. They followed the example of those recorded for us in Hebrews 11 - "The Hall of Faith." Truly the world was not worthy of them. These men and women were true followers of Jesus Christ that every boy and girl should know and whose example they should follow.
How could Mary be courageous when those around her were so frightened? She remembered God's Word in Deuteronomy 31:6, "Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee." Mary knew that the Lord would not fail her in the time of danger.
Would you willingly return to the place of your captivity to give God’s Word to those who treated you so cruelly? Patrick did just that because he understood that Christ loved those men just as He loved him. It truly was the love of Christ that constrained him to go.
God used the story of John and Betty Stam to move many men and women to answer His call to missionary service. As a result, multitudes are part of the family of God. Some day those of us who know Christ as our Saviour will see the Lord Jesus Himself reward John and Betty Stam with a special crown reserved only for those of His servants who have given their lives for the cause of Christ.
Some people believe that a woman is unable to play any significant role in God’s work. However, the story of Ann Judson's constant and faithful love for the Lord has encouraged many women to yield their lives to Christ in missionary service. Her devotion to her husband in its fullest measure allowed him to finish the work Christ had given Him to do.
In early colonial days, John Eliot began preaching God's Word to the Natick Indians and many came to know Jesus Christ as their Saviour. In 1663, he published the first Bible in America - a translation in the language of the Algonquin Indians. Because he answered God's call with such dedication, he became known as the "Apostle to the Indians."
