watch this video now.

i promise you it will be worth the 9:59 minutes of your life. this is a video of a tribe in indonesia receiving the New Testament in their own language for the first time. their joy is indescribable. so go grab a kleenex, then come back and hit play.

i pray that we will never take His Word for granted. i pray our hearts will not become tainted with knowledge that puffs us up. i pray we will not let petty differences (petty differences like: which denomination is the right one; which bible translation is accurate and which is not, what "race" the original hebrews were; our opinions about different theology beliefs and views) distract us from what is really important, which is to love God will all our hearts and to show and tell others about His love to fulfill the great commission. i pray that this video will stoke the fire in us and let God's Word burn in and through us to let His light shine into all the world.

"his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. i am weary of holding it in; indeed, i cannot." - jeremiah 20:9

thank you lauren for sharing this video to me.
