Book Review: Steal Away Home

book, book review, review, Steal Away Home, Matt Carter, Aaron Ivey

Steal Away Home is a story about Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the Prince of Preachers, and Thomas Johnson, a former slave turned missionary to Africa. Charles Spurgeon was an English Particular Baptist preacher during the Victorian age. You can gain more information about Charles Spurgeon from the Spurgeon Center. Thomas Johnson had heard about Charles Spurgeon when he went to a book burning with his then slave owner, and in time, Thomas and Charles were able to meet and encourage one another in the faith. You can read Twenty-Eight Years a Slave to learn more about the life of Thomas Johnson.

Steal Away Home, Matt Carter, Aaron Ivey, book, book review

Steal Away Home by Matt Carter and Aaron Ivey is their story of friendship over the years. This book is a historical fiction account, and the authors do convey that in the introduction. Carter and Ivey have written this book in hopes to bring history to life with the third person viewpoint of each character. The title of the book comes from a song that Thomas Johnson and his fellow former slaves would sing at night when they would worship God together; they would sing, “Steal away home, steal away home to Jesus.” This song gave them hope that one day they would be free.

Due to time constraints in my schedule I was able to read this book little by little – beginning in April and finishing the book in September. The book switches back and forth between Charles’ and Thomas’ stories. Carter and Ivey also wanted to portray Charles Spurgeon as more of a human and played up his faults and dealing with depression and anxiety. Both Charles and Thomas’ stories are very inspirational and encouraging.

Overall, I give this book a four out of five stars. It is an enjoyable book, but it just makes you want to read more into their lives rather than feeling satisfied in knowing about them. I do recommend this book to those that would like to know more about Charles Spurgeon and Thomas Johnson, especially as a starting point.

Comment Below

Have you ever read Steal Away Home? What did you think of the book? Would you recommend this book or another book for someone looking to learn more about Charles Spurgeon and / or Thomas Johnson? What do you find fascinating about their lives? Do you enjoy reading historical fiction accounts, or would you rather read into non-fiction, looking only at facts?

What’s in the Mail: Midkenson

mail, letter, mailbox, what's in the mail, haiti

Letter’s in the mail! I received a letter from Midkenson in Haiti. He just turned six years old this month.

Midkenson, letter, Compassion International

In this letter, Midkenson writes that he learns from the teacher about God and Jesus. His favorite thing he learned about Jesus is that He turned water into wine when He was living among the Jews. Midkenson prays to God about security. He writes that his favorite song to sing at his child development project is “Look at a Rock Giving Water,” which goes along with the story of Moses and the rock that gave water to the Israelites in the wilderness. Midkenson’s favorite Bible story is the story of Jonah and the fish.

Midkenson, letter, Compassion International

Midkenson was promoted to the next grade in school. Yay! Midkenson also asks for prayer for his neighborhood and for his spiritual life.

He also sent a picture with his letter. He is growing up fast!

Prayer Request from Haiti Outreach Ministries

Please pray for Haiti and Haiti Outreach Ministries. This prayer request was made on Haiti Outreach Ministries‘ Facebook page today.

Here is an update on recent events in Haiti from Gary Fulton, the Executive Director of HOM:

Praying or Haiti:
The past couple of weeks have been difficult for Haiti as protesters have blocked many of the streets throughout Port-au-Prince (and much of the country). Haitians continue to face shortages of fuel and food. Our HOM/MICECC schools on our four campuses closed this past week and our medical clinic in Cite Soleil had to stop seeing patients on Wednesday and was closed Thursday and Friday. Two medical team trips and our economic development and pastoral leadership classes scheduled for early October are cancelled. Unfortunately, when our schools and the medical clinic are closed, the students do not receive the daily lunches and many people do not receive the medical care they need.

I ask that you join us in praying for the people of Haiti, for calm and peace, for availability of food and fuel, for stability, and for God’s grace, love, and presence to be known. We are grateful for God’s care and the many ways that we can be in ministry in Haiti. Thank you for joining us on this journey of faith as we serve with our brothers and sister in Haiti.

The Importance of Hospitality

The importance of hospitality

Merriam-Webster defines “hospitality” as:

hospitality noun
hos·​pi·​tal·​i·​ty | \ ˌhä-spə-ˈta-lə-tē \
plural hospitalities
Definition of hospitality
1 : hospitable treatment, reception, or disposition

Hospitality is not always easy, but it is very important for believers to practice hospitality. Scripture demands that we practice hospitality.

In Philippians 2:25-30, Paul encourages the Philippians church to “receive” Epaphroditus “in the Lord with all joy.” Receive is the verb that I would like to focus on in that section of Scripture because it is the reception part of the definition of hospitality (see the above definition). God wants us to receive people into our lives, our homes, and our churches. When we receive others, we are able to show them the love that God has for us and them.

From this section of Scripture, we can also learn that hospitality is for the whole church. While individuals can practice hospitality, the whole church can work together to create a warm welcome and reception for people. I have seen how a whole church can work together to give hospitality to a visitor or new member. For example, not all of us are really gifted at being the hostess of a party. I know that I am not the best at bringing people together by being the hostess of a party. However, I have seen my aunt in action, and she has the natural gift to do that. She is not as gifted in other areas, and I am able to help her in those areas. The church works exactly like that. We all work together to welcome people into the church, which brings hospitality to the one being welcomed.

This may seem like I am taking a step back, but this is an important step in the process of hospitality. Before we can receive others, we must receive Christ. He is our example, leader, and reason we show hospitality to others. In Colossians 2:6-7, it says that we are to receive Christ and then walk in Him. If we do not have Christ, our hospitality toward others will be empty and in vain. Have you received Christ as your Lord? Today is the day to receive Him! We are not guaranteed tomorrow.

In Romans 12, Paul commends us to love one another and practice hospitality. How does he say that we can show hospitality? He lists these ways that we can show hospitality to those within and without the church:

  • Let love be without hypocrisy. (verse 9)
  • Abhor what is evil. (verse 9)
  • Cling to what is good. (verse 9)
  • Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. (verse 10)
  • Give preference to one another in honor. (verse 10)
  • Be diligent in helping one another. (verse 11)
  • Be fervent in spirit. (verse 11) — Compare to Galatians 5:16-26.
  • Serve the Lord. (verse 11)
  • Rejoice in hope. (verse 12)
  • Persevere in tribulation. (verse 12)
  • Be devoted to prayer. (verse 12)
  • Contribute to the needs of the saints, which are believers in the church. (verse 13)
  • Practicing hospitality. (verse 13)

We can also see what hospitality does not look like:

  • Pretending to love others. Wearing a mask of love and yet despising the people you serve. (verse 9)
  • Loving what is evil. (verse 9)
  • Clinging to what is bad. (verse 9)
  • Be unfaithful, apathetic, indifferent, uncaring, negligent, and untrustworthy to one another in apathy and a lack of faith. (verse 10)
  • Reject one another in dishonor. (verse 10)
  • Be careless, disinterested, idle, lazy, unconcerned about the tiniest thought of helping someone else. Be more interested in helping yourself. (verse 11)
  • Be apathetic, indifferent, insincere, and uncaring about what the Holy Spirit is doing or wants to do in your life and the lives of the believers around you. (verse 11)
  • If you are apathetic toward hospitality, you are not obeying or serving the Lord. (verse 11)
  • Focus on fear, complaining, comparing your life to others, and wishing you had it better. (verse 12)
  • Give up when the going gets tough. (verse 12)
  • Be disloyal, unconcerned, and apathetic about prayer. (verse 12)
  • Never consider about how you can sacrifice to help benefit the lives of the other believers around you. (verse 13)
  • Believe the lie that someone else can do hospitality. (verse 13)

I do not know your heart or what you thought while reading the list of what hospitality is and what it is not. If you felt convicted in any area of your life, I pray that you will repent and  take it to Jesus. He alone can change your heart to obey Him. Sure, you can try on your own and in your own power to live a life that practices hospitality, but in the long run, your practices will be wasted, empty, and in vain. Please reflect on how God is calling you to practice hospitality, and please ask Him for help in the areas where you fall short. Trust me, we all fall short. It is only Christ that can help us change forever.

In 1 Peter 4:9, Peter instructs us to show hospitality without grumbling. Hospitality is not easy; it is a sacrifice of time, energy, and money to love and help others. Therefore, if you do show hospitality to others, it is something you do from the heart, holding nothing back, and certainly not while grumbling and complaining. Showing hospitality is also not something to do as a way to gain the upper hand, show off to others, or feel like you are better than others. Hospitality is serving others for the purpose of pointing to Christ.

Not only are we to show hospitality to those whom we know in the church, in Hebrews 13:2, we are reminded to show hospitality to strangers. We are to be imitators of Christ (see Ephesians 5:1-2), and therefore we are to love others whether we know them or not. We could impact their lives for Christ by showing them hospitality, which is exactly our goal!

What’s in the Mail: Burusi

title image of what's in the mail, Burusi

Letter’s in the mail! This week, I received a letter from Burusi, whom I sponsor through Compassion International. In this letter, Burusi describes his home and his life.

Burusi

Burusi

I also received a picture of him tending to his goats. Burusi celebrates his ninth birthday in a few days!

letter from Burusi, Compassion International, picture of Burusi, goats

In the letter, he writes that he lives in a village. In his house, he sleeps beside his siblings. He gets his water from a river and the dam. He gets his food from the “shamba,” which is a farm or garden.

letter from Burusi

His house is made of mud and grass with a dirt floor. He does not have electricity in his house. He washes his clothes in the river or using a basin. He says his lives with his siblings. He also thanks me for his gift; he bought a bed with the money. Burusi also drew some pictures for me.

letter from Burusi, Compassion International

This letter reminds me to not take things for granted. I am reminded that I live in a house that has wood floors, electricity, running water, laundry machines, and air conditioner. I sleep in a bed. I do not have to worry about the quality of the water I drink. I do have a garden, where I have tomatoes, green beans, carrots, squash, basil, and cucumbers. However, the food that my garden grows is in addition to the already abundance that we have. I am blessed, but I am so thankful that I can bless others, like Burusi, too!

Sponsor a Child

Please sponsor a child through Compassion International. Here in the United States, we are so blessed that we can probably just turn on a light when it gets dark or get our water from the kitchen sink. We do not have to worry about whether our water is clean enough to drink; in most cases, we take for granted that we have clean water right where we are. Sponsoring a child through Compassion International is $38 per month. By sponsoring a child through Compassion International, you can impact a child and their family by giving them access to an education, food, clothing, shelter, medical treatment, abuse intervention, and most importantly the opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

What do you normally take for granted? Do you think often about the children around the world who do not have access to the resources that you do? If you do sponsor a child, have they told you about their living conditions? Does knowing about your sponsored child’s life make you grateful for what you do have?

Best Decision Ever

Best Decision Ever, blog header

What was the best decision you have ever made? According to UNC-TV, we make an estimated 35,000 decisions every day. Some of those choices are good, and some of those choices are bad, and even sinful. Choices have consequences, and sometimes those consequences can last a lifetime. We can read throughout the Bible about people who made decisions, whether for good or bad. In Hebrews 11, the writer discusses the list of people who chose to live by faith, and their decision to live by faith in Christ was the best decision that they could have ever made!

Last night during church, my pastor explained the choice that Moses’ parents made when they hid their baby boy from the Egyptian soldiers who were throwing babies to the crocodiles according to the king’s edict. They most likely did not know at the time that by saving their baby, they would end up helping the Israelites escape Egypt. They also did not know that their son would end up foreshadowing the future exodus, where Jesus Christ will lead His believers home to live with Him forever. But they lived by faith and hid their son, making a decision that would end up affecting people throughout history. That is the kind of good decision that we like to make because we all, hopefully, want to make a positive difference in the world.

Now, I want to tell you about the best decision that I have made in my life. I do not know the impact that this decision will make on future generations, but I am sure that this decision is the best decision that I will ever make. I made this decision when I was six, almost seven, years old. I was attending Central Baptist Church in my hometown at that point, and my Sunday School teacher was Mrs. Martin. She was telling our class about Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, whom if we believe in Him will save our lives from God’s wrath. I made the decision right then with God’s help in the basement classroom that I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and that He is my Savior. I told Mrs. Martin about my decision, and she talked to me about Jesus more. We read through Bible verses, sang songs, and prayed. I then was baptized on August 20, 1995 at Central Baptist by the pastor.

baptism certificate, best decision ever, believe, faith, Central Baptist Church

 

Less than a month ago, I celebrated the 24th anniversary of that decision. I have not yet obtained everything that God has promised, but the day still draws near. In Hebrews 11:13-16, the author writes about the people who lived by faith did not obtain everything that God promised in this life either, “These all died in faith, although they had not received the things that were promised. But they saw them from a distance, greeted them, and confessed that they were foreigners and temporary residents on the earth. Now those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. If they were thinking about where they came from, they would have had an opportunity to return. But they now desire a better place – a heavenly one. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.”  Since then, I have learned more of God’s promises in His Word, grown in faith and love. Never has He left me.

So, now it is up to you. Will you accept Christ as your Savior and Lord? What will your best decision ever be? I pray that you will believe on Christ for salvation.

Sponsor a Child

What’s In the Mail: Edith

Header image, mailbox, letter, what's in the mail

Letter’s in the Mail! I recently received a letter from my mom’s Compassion International sponsored child, Edith, from Ecuador. She is in 10th grade (age 16), and she hopes to be a veterinarian one day. She writes that she would like to go to a university in Guayaquil, which has a specialty in veterinary science.

Edith, Ecuador, Compassion International

Edith

Her prayer request is that her family would be able to stay together in the Lord’s way. I am not sure exactly what she means by this, whether her parents are having issues in their marriage or that she is concerned that her siblings are growing up and they will not be able to stay close. It may even mean that she is concerned that not all of her family members are saved and in a relationship with Christ. In any case, I will be praying for her and her family. Please pray with me for her family that they all come to know Christ as Lord and Savior and that they would be able to still be close to one another.

Compassion International, child sponsorship. letter, child, kid

She also wrote about her pets and animals that she likes. She likes animals, which adds to her willingness to learn veterinary science. She had previously written about a donkey, but now it is either dead or has been given away to a family member. However, she has other pets.

She wrote on two pages of paper this time, and the translators only translated the first page. Thankfully, I have Google Translate to help out. She also writes that her favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Book Review: Outgrowing the Ingrown Church

book review, Outgrowing the Ingrown Church, evangelism, outreach, Gospel, Great Commission, Jesus Christ, Bible, C. John Miller

This is an older published book, but it was recommended on the Revitalize and Replant podcast with Thom Rainer. Because I am interested in ways to help grow our church, I decided to take a look at Outgrowing the Ingrown Church by C. John Miller (published in 1986). This book is older than I am, but its truths are valuable and timeless for the church.

book review, Outgrowing the Ingrown Church, evangelism, outreach, Gospel, Great Commission, Jesus Christ, Bible, C. John Miller

Miller wrote this book after going through a disappointing period in his ministry; he took time away to study God’s Word. What he found is what he shares in this book. He had found that the church he ministered at was ingrown, also known as introverted. They had focused on themselves rather than reaching out to the community and sharing the Gospel with those whom they knew.

Miller decided that the problem started with him, the pastor; however, the problem did not end with him. The whole congregation needed to become a part of the mission of seeking the lost for Christ. Miller calls the leaders of the church that are to be involved in the process of “outgrowing the ingrown church” a “pacesetter,” which means that they are the ones who set the tone of the church congregation and spur them on to love and good deeds (pg. 15).

What is the one thing that Miller recommends that will change the way your church does outreach and evangelism? Faith in the Gospel! He writes:

So let me call you and your congregation, not simply to survival for another week, but to radical commitment: to believe Christ’s promises and to do His will at all costs. That will is revealed in His command to the church to go with the gospel to the nations and make disciples of them. Our task, then, is a missionary task. (pg. 25)

Miller reasons that a lack of evangelism and seeking the lost is basically a lack of faith in God’s promises. Yikes! Therefore, we are to believe and hold onto God’s promises, and in doing so, it will sanctify us through the Holy Spirit, enabling us to do what God commands and wills.

Miller describes the ingrown church as having tunnel vision, a shared sense of group superiority, extreme sensitivity to negative human opinion, niceness in tone, a Christian soap opera in style, confused leadership roles, and a misdirected purpose (see Chapter 2). In essence, the church has mission drift and a preference for worldly acceptance. What is needed is the Gospel truth poured out into the lives of the church members so that they can understand their identity and purpose in Christ.

Are you willing to give it all for Christ? Count the cost! It is worth it to the end. Hold onto Christ’s promises, and share the Gospel with others even if it is difficult.

Miller’s Outgrowing the Ingrown Church is a great resource for looking at what exactly it takes to wake up the church to the Great Commission. I highly recommend this book, and I give it five out of five stars. And a big thank you to the Grace Schools Library for allowing me to borrow this book through Interlibrary loan!

Clifty Falls State Park

You do not have to travel all the way to Tennessee just to hike to a waterfall! Indiana has a few waterfalls too, and they are best visited when it has just rained recently. My family and I visited Clifty Falls State Park a couple of weeks ago, and it was a beautiful park. Clifty Falls State Park is in Madison, Indiana, and it has two entrances. We entered through the South Gate, and the entrance fee was $7.

We drove through the park, and the views were beautiful! The park features great picnic areas, a couple of playgrounds, camping areas, an inn and restaurant, and four waterfalls. There are also many hiking trails ranging from Easy to Very Rugged. We decided to stop at the Poplar Grove shelter for a rest. Then, Mom and I played on the swings for a minute. Haha! The park is well kept.

Then, we drove to the Big Clifty Falls area. The path to the overlook at Big Clifty Falls is ADA accessible, so all of your family can enjoy the waterfall. When we went, it was dry, so the waterfall was mostly a trickle. Therefore, I recommend going right after a big rain to experience the full waterfall.

While we were there, we saw a family of raccoons. It was odd to see them out since they are mostly nocturnal, but a surprise nonetheless.

Clifty Falls State Park is a beautiful park, and I would even suggest it as a place for a wedding venue. There are many shelter houses throughout the park, and the park would also make a great place for picnics and birthday parties. I definitely recommend this park for a family outing; we would definitely go here again.

Have you ever visited Clifty Falls State Park? How does it compare to other parks with waterfalls? What is your favorite park to visit?

Tipsaw Lake Recreation Area

Tipsaw Lake Recreation Area, Indiana, Hoosier National Forest, forest, lake

I recently went to Tipsaw Park with my family because we want to get out and walk more, and recreational parks sound like a great place to go for that. Tipsaw Lake Recreation Area is part of the Hoosier National Forest. It is across the highway from Branchville Correctional Facility, but the actual recreation grounds are back a long road, so you do not have to worry about your family’s safety.

Tipsaw Lake has swimming and boating areas, and there are also some hiking trails nearby. They also offer camping. The area is beautiful, and the camp and lake areas feature nice amenities. Mom and I walked around part of the lake area, and there were many picnic spots available. There were restrooms as well as lots of changing rooms available.

Tipsaw Lake, Tipsaw Lake Recreation Area, Hoosier National Forest, park, forest, lake, camp

Tipsaw Lake is smaller than Patoka Lake, but it is still a nice lake to visit. There was some algae covering parts of the lake, which is something to watch out for since there have been many getting sick from swimming in some of the lakes around Indiana lately. However, the beach area was not covered in algae. It cost us $5 for a day pass to the park, which is not bad for a day’s swim or hike. It looked like Tipsaw Lake backs up to a dam, which was neat to see. While there is boating and fishing allowed in the lake, there were not any out that day. They also had a playground for children to play.

I recommend Tipsaw Lake as a fun place to visit, especially for a summer birthday party or a swimming party. While there are water fountains, I would recommend bringing your own bottled water and snacks. Also keep an eye on your party if swimming, there are no lifeguards.

One day, we would like to visit Celina Recreation Area, which is just up the road from Tipsaw Lake.

What’s in the Mail: Letters from Blessed and Bryan

Eden Ministries, Mail, Zimbabwe, Blessed, Bryan, sponsored children, sponsored child, child sponsorship

Letter’s in the mail! My mom and I sponsor Blessed and Bryan through Eden Ministries in Zimbabwe, and we received some letters and updated pictures from them this week.

Blessed, Eden Ministries, Zimbabwe, sponsored child

In my letter from Blessed (aged 15) she writes that she enjoys riding her bicycle and playing ball games. She is in seventh grade now, and her favorite subjects are Math, English, and Science. She and a bunch of other children from Eden Ministries are going to Lasting Impressions Camp this month during their school holiday, and Blessed writes that they are “learning about how we can forgive each other.” I looked up information about the camp, and it looks like it will be a fun adventure for them. I pray she makes lots of new friends, has fun, and grows closer to Christ while she is there. She says that her favorite songs are “Lord I Lift Your Name on Heart [High?]” and “Thank You Lord for Salvation.”

She also writes that they are in winter in Zimbabwe, which is surprising when it is 93 degrees today in Indiana. However, Zimbabwe is a little south of the equator, and according to SafariBookings.com,

June, July & August – Be sure to pack warm winter clothes because morning game drives in open vehicles will be cold. The average morning temperature is 6°C/43°F. Afternoons will be more pleasant with temperatures around 25°C/77°F. Parks at lower altitude will be warmer.

Brian, Zimbabwe, Eden Ministries, child sponsorship

Brian is 2 years and 7 months old, and therefore, his mother wrote the letter. She writes that Brian is “clever” and likes to play with others and with toy cars. She also describes Brian as being “tall and light in complexion” as well as “very handsome.” I agree with her! He is adorable! The most funny thing in her letter is that she wrote, “He likes rolling in mud.” She must have a lot of laundry to do for him and feels that he will not stay clean during the day. Little boys are wonderful and fun!

What is the funniest thing you have read in a letter from your sponsored child or their family?

Sponsor a Child

Please sponsor a child through Eden Ministries. By sponsoring a child through Eden Ministries, you can help a child learn about God’s love for them as well as support their education, housing, food, clothing, and their future. Eden Ministries helps many orphans as well as children who need extra support. Some of the children have been abandoned by their parents, and others have been orphaned through illness and death. In any case, these children need our help, and as Christians, we are called to aid the orphan and the widow. Eden Ministries is a great non-profit to join in sharing the Gospel and helping those most vulnerable in Zimbabwe.
