I love reading books that inspire and encourage me in my faith. If you are looking for something to remind you how awesome, big, and amazing God is then I certainly have a book for you!!!
“Eternity In Their Hearts: Startling Evidence of Belief in the One True God in Hundreds of Cultures Throughout the World” is a book by Don Richardson. The purpose of the book is to show how there have been numerous people groups all over the world who have a basic knowledge/understanding of God. They each have different pieces of the story but are lacking the full understanding about Christ. Many of them know that someone is going to come along and give them the full story so they can be reconciled to the one true God. It is a pretty amazing book and I was astounded by all of the ways that God has prepared people all over the world to receive the Gospel. It is true what Christ said in John 4:35, “…open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.”
As we prepare for the mission field, it is good to realize once again that we serve the one true God. It is good to know that God has already gone ahead of us and prepared the fields. It is good to know that we simply have to go and obey and God will take care of the rest!
Have a blessed week and check out the book!!!
