Bro. Kims, holding a Gospel News, whilst preaching in Mbandaka, Congo. Of the 70 million population four million were killed
in the recent horrific wars and some areas are still the battle grounds of brutal militias. Many are interested in the Truth and
there is an urgent need for our recently produced French NEV Bibles, (together with commentary) and abridged Bible Basics.
EDITORIAL: A Prayer to Pray
We live in a world where the majority are drifting through life as in a dream, doing roughly the same things the same way, living on autopilot, not too much in touch with themselves, existing rather than living. Make no mistake about it. For all their apparent achievements in study, business and family life- this is the hard reality for most of our fellows.
We have been given life in Christ, and "life more abundant" (Jn. 10:10) - an allusion to how the natural creation brought forth life
`abundantly' (Gen. 1:20). Those who have become part of the new creation are to experience this same `abundance' of life - whether trapped in poverty, difficult family situations, ill health or even clinical depression. The `abundance' of our lives is to be what makes us different from those in the world - we are to salute not only our brethren because we are living "more [same Greek word translated `abundantly'] than others (Mk. 5:47). There is a power at work in us which does "exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think" (Eph. 3:20).
