February is my favorite month of the year because at LVBC, that means it's missions and Faith Promise time. I love hearing the reports of various missionaries coming through and seeing members seriously seek God's face as they consider their part in world missions for the coming year.
A familiar sight to see is flags resting on a window sill; a silent testimony of the souls who still wait to hear the good news of Jesus Christ.
I love the way this picture turned out. Doesn't it look like a cross is over the bulletin board? Only the cross of Christ makes it possible to move forward by faith, and the reason for missions is because of the cross!
When I look at all these flags and consider that they represent only a small portion of the world's countries, I then begin to realize just how small and insignificant I really am. Isaiah says, "Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing." (40:15) Wow.
