A Prayer Request . . .

Precious Friend,

    If we truly love someone, we will want to know them better. This is especially true of our sweet Prince, Jesus Christ. The more we know Him, the more our lives will be filled with the beautiful aroma of His character and glory (2 Corinthians 2:14-17)! We then become the fragrance of Christ to all those around us.

    God commands and urges us to press on to know Him better:
So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord (Hosea 6:3a).
This, of course, takes humility, deep desire and effort. The people asked Jesus, “What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent” (John 6:28-29). The work of “believing” is closely tied to the work of “knowing” . . .  
for I know whom I have believed (2 Timothy 1:12).
And, oh, what wonderful employment this is!

    Sadly the world and much of what is called the church today want us to focus on everything but Christ. Or the “Christ” they imagine is far different from the Sovereign Lord of the Bible:
These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them,
because He is Lord of lords and King of kings. (Revelation 17:14).
The world does not want us to know Jesus in this way.

    I have a burning desire to see our Lord lovingly and accurately proclaimed to the next generation (Psalm 71:14-18) that He might be glorified in our children and children’s children. This need is greater than ever. So many false, even perverse, views of Jesus exist today and only together can we combat them. We are fellow soldiers in Christ’s service and we labor on until our great General defeats all His enemies (2 Timothy 4:7) . . . which He will!

    Please continue to stand with us in this vital work and ministry. We desperately need your prayers and encouragement. We are called to encourage one another (Hebrews 3:13), and we so dearly want to encourage you and your own with this richest of knowledge, this greatest of treasures . . . the glory of God seen in Christ Jesus—our Creator, Redeemer, Lord, and dearest Friend.

In His love,
