Ray Pritchard’s Blog – November 2012
(Tomorrow we start the 25-day journey that leads to Christmas. This year I’m inviting everyone to join us in an Advent devotional series called “Let’s Go Straight to Bethlehem.” We’ll post a new devotional reading each day from December 1 through December 25.
Enjoy each day as a gift from God and don’t forget that you won’t be here forever.
We have just posted the Winter 2012 edition of the KBM newsletter. In it you’ll find a complete report of our recent trips to China and Korea along with pictures of some Chinese believers we met.
Death is truly the last enemy of the people of God.
Life poses many questions that it does not answer.
You arms are too short to box with God.
I’m one of the hosts on American Family Radio (AFR) from 10 AM-12 Noon today. During the the first hour our guest will be Dr. David Jeremiah.
Happy are those who understand the difference between living to work and working to live.
A person can have it all—and still be miserable and unfulfilled.
We may not live long enough to enjoy what God gives us.
Try praying this prayer for the next three weeks.
Death is everywhere. Where is the resurrection?
Sometimes having less can be a blessing.
How much is enough?
A few months ago I received a copy of a brand-new survey of the New Testament called Frameworks by Eric Larson. The truest thing I can say is that it is not what I expected. In my mind when I say the words “New Testament Survey,” my mind goes immediately to the huge, thick tomes that were required reading in seminary. Because those book...
If you can’t change the world, do what you can where you are and let God take care of what you can’t do.
“When man is bored with God, even heaven does not have a better alternative.”
There is a time to talk and a time to listen and there is also a time to do as you are told.
Invest your life in the things that really matter and let God take care of your reputation.
We need each other more than we know.
One evening he comes home and his family is gone.
If you needed more, God would give it to you.
In the end God will make all things right.
A week ago I was in China along with Nick and Mike Maynard and Wesley Wildmon. One night we met with a group of Christians in a hotel room. One man said that he had traveled 15 hours by bus to get there. All of them had heard our Keep Believing broadcast in Mandarin. Some heard it over the radio, some heard it via CD, and some heard it on their ...
In Christ we have a hope that death cannot destroy.
Every time I sin, I die a little more.
Something has gone wrong with the human race.
This morning we start our journey home. The Great Circle Mapper says that starting in Taipei, Taiwan, we will travel 8075 miles to Memphis, Tennessee. We go from Taipei to Narita, Japan to Seattle to Salt Lake City and then to Memphis. Nick will travel from Seattle to Detroit and then to Chicago. All told, we will be en route for about 28 hours, in...
When God judges a nation, he simply lets sin take its natural course.
This little chip contains Good News for China. Though it is smaller than my thumbnail, it can hold four gigabytes of data. When we were in China, one of the pastors we met showed us how he uses the chip to play the Keep Believing China broadcast on his cellphone. He didn’t even have a smartphone, just a phone with a tiny screen that you scrol...
Hold lightly what you value greatly because it doesn’t belong to you anyway.
Only God can see the big picture of life.
