A letter from Don Lough, Jr.

I s s u e 7

There is nothing like discerning and doing God’s will. Daily living for God leads us to greater things as we are faithful and obedient in what He has given us to do. One of my favorite Bible passages is Acts 8:26-40 where we read about an angel who suddenly visited Philip and told him to “Arise and go”. Out of obedience, Philip did exactly what God wanted him to do. How can you know what God wants from you today? It’s not complicated…consider these three things: 1. Pursue His Way….There is no substitute for doing the things we know God wants us to do. 2. Perceive God’s Work…Be sensitive to what He is doing and how you can get involved. 3. Proclaim God’s Word…Speak up and share the hope that’s within you. Our Missions Conference theme this year at Word of Life Bible Institute was – Forward. God’s Plan in Motion. As an alumnus and/or friend of Word of Life, it is our prayer that you will say to God, “Here’s my life; I am ready”. Then make the choice to be obedient and intentionally share the Good News. God is at work in people’s lives, and His Word can change the hardest hearts. As you move forward in this way, you will be a part of . . . Holding Forth the Word of Life! With a grateful heart,
