A Lady of God

A Lady of God by Keith Cook based on 2 John

I have been around two great ladies most of my life: my mother and my wife. From my mother I have seen unselfish love developed into an art form. From my wife I have seen a heart full of love and a total dedication to her family take priority in every area of her life.

With these two wonderful expressions of "a lady of God," I was amazed when God revealed to me in His Word a vivid picture of what a real lady of God is to be. I immediately thought of my mother and my wife. I am sure you will reflect and immediately think of someone who is a true "lady of God".

LOVED. A lady of God is Loved.

She is loved by God and by all who are walking in the truth of God's Word.

ACCOMPLISHED. A lady of God is Accomplished.

She walks in all God Commands and because of this she receives full rewards from her life and actions.

DISCIPLER. A lady of God is a Discipler.

She trains and molds her children and is a strong and consistent influence to others including her husband, immediate family, peers, and neighbors.

YEARNING. A lady of God is constantly Yearning.

She desires To Love others
To Be An Example to children
To Continue to Walk in all God commands
To Constantly Watch herself
To Never go to far in her remarks, words, deeds, action, attitude, expressions, or love.

If you are a woman, decide today to be a real Lady of God. Help other women you know to grow in their faith and dependence on Christ.

If you are a man, decide to be an encouragement to those ladies you are around to help them be all God wants them to be. Never allow yourself to become a stumbling block in their lives or to steal their joy and giftedness.

Our culture needs to see "A Lady Of God" today!

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray that God will continue to raise up Godly ladies to effectively serve Him. If you are a woman, pray that God will enable you to have a deeper relationship with Him as you are Loved, Accomplished, a Discipler, and Yearning. If you are a man, pray for the ladies God has placed in your life that have had a godly influence upon your walk with the Lord.

On The Go Prayer Focus: All the local churches, committees, and leaders who will be working with On The Go Ministries and the Keith Cook Team in creative outreach efforts in the United States and around the world.

A Lord Worth Thanking

A Lord Worth Thanking by Keith Cook

"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting." Psalm 118:1

Have you ever had a bad boss? Have you ever had to endure a less than motivational teacher? Ever been on a team with a less than stellar teammate? We all have! It is hard to endure such trials and tribulations but when you think of the Lord Jesus Christ, our mindset changes. When you look at the scriptures you can see a great picture of what we have in our Lord and what we are to do because of how great our Lord is. He is a Lord worth thanking!

"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good"

How hard is it to say thank you? Is it hard for you to give someone other than yourself credit for a blessing, talent, or reward? God is reminding us in His Word to give thanks to the real Lord to whom thanks is due.

What are you thankful to the Lord for?

Be thankful for good health.
Praise God that He has granted you great happiness.
Many are blessed with wonderful financial success.
Most can say that the blessings of God are so rich and full right now.

These are all good things to have but what if they were to all go away.

What would you do if your health was bad or one of your children came down with a sickness that was serious? Would you still have reason to thank the Lord? What if you became burdened by the sin sick society around you and the happiness you once found on the golf course or at the mall no longer brought you joy. Would you still have reason to be thankful to the Lord? If the price of gas brings down your profits and the stock market takes a plunge, or your position get terminated at work, could you still find reason to be thankful in the Lord?

Is health, happiness, success, blessings required from God in order for you to be thankful?

For the Christian nothing can separate us from the love of God and nothing should be able to keep us from being thankful to God for what He is to us! He is a Lord worth thanking.

"For His lovingkindness is everlasting."

The Bible says we are to be thankful for His lovingkindness. The word lovingkindness can also mean mercy, love that is steadfast, compassion, or even the goodness of God.

When we are truly thankful to God we are faithfully and honestly choosing to believe that God is showing mercy towards us and is lovingly thinking of our needs, desires, and situation. When we are truly thankful, we are trusting in Him to take care of all we really need.

Being thankful to our Lord means:

1. That we are not demanding of God certain riches or proofs that He is loving and caring for us.

2. That we are not going to stop thanking God or serving God if we do not get our way or will in certain situations in our lives.

3. That we will honor God with giving Him credit and praise for all the provisions He makes on our behalf. In order to do this we have to see what He is doing in every situation. The only way to see and know this is to see and know Him. You do this in prayer and study of His Word.

4. Trusting God when we go through the hard situations and the times in life that make no sense.

5. We thank God in public and private. We share with the Lord in prayer and praise our thankfulness and we share with others how grateful and thankful we are for His mercy and provision.

Personal Prayer Focus: Take a few moments to day to reflect on the lovingkindness of God towards you in Christ. Because of Christ coming into your life and providing salvation, security, and stability you have reason to be thankful. Make sure God knows just how thankful you are.

Close Encounters

Close Encounters by Keith Cook

"Bear one another's burdens, and thus fulfill the law of Christ. For each one shall bear his own load." Galatians 6:2, 5

A close encounter implies coming along side another person with the intention to help bear their burden and not leave them or quit until the task is done. Everyday you come in contact with children, church leaders, lost people, coworkers, relatives, and friends! You can have numerous close encounters.

When you help someone you share a part of yourself. You give your time, talents, love and energy to help them succeed or live as God would have them live.

When you give encouragement to another Christian you also share in the rewards of their service and efforts. These blessings are not always obvious to an outsider, but in your heart you will receive joy and satisfaction in being used by God to help another. Sometimes the Lord will even let you see positive, obvious, tangible results of your service.

If you have looked with the eyes of love then God has shown you some people you need to come alongside to help them bear their burdens. You are called to take the time and make the effort to meet the physical, mental and spiritual needs of those you have come in contact with.

As you desire a closer relationship with Jesus, you will also desire to come close with those He brings across your path.

Close encounter list: (List the individuals God has placed on your heart)

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

After you make your list ask God what He would have you do to help, encourage or simply comfort each of those on your list.

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray that God will give you courage and the opportunity to share your faith in Christ. Pray for believers all around the world as they seek out opportunities to share their faith.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The 30 Minute Radio & Podcast Program "On The Go with Keith Cook". This is a weekly program airing over the internet, short wave, and radio stations. Each week Keith relates creative ways to share Christ. Pray for Keith, Joan, the On The Go Staff, and special guests as they minister on these broadcasts.

From a Father's Heart

From a Father's Heart by Keith Cook

"As water reflects a face, so a man's heart reflects the man." Proverbs 27:19

A father knows what is in the heart of his children just like Jesus knows what is in the heart of each of us. When you live with someone and you actually take the time to listen and experience that person. You can really pickup on their heart and dreams.

Growing up with my son, I have noticed a few things about him and about me.

He listens to me
He likes me
He wants protection and wisdom from me
He wants to please me
He wants to be free to do more than me

He wants friends to be real friends
He wants to have fun
He wants to be successful in life
He wants to find a Godly wife one day
He wants to devotionally meet God each day
He wants to serve God with his life

How do I know these things? I am his dad! He is my son. I am in his life. He is in my life.

God knows you. He knows your dreams and desires. He knows what you want and need. He is there with you each step of the way. He is saying to the angels..."Look at my son/daughter!"

As an international evangelist, often times I had the privilege and opportunity to minister with my son. I am so proud of him. He has the Lord Jesus Christ in every area of his life. As he ministers through the word and in song, he does so with such conviction and understanding. He has the compassion of Christ as well as the determination to do ministry right. Keith, I love being your dad.

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray for all of our sons and daughters and our relationships with them. (You can pray for moms and dads too!)

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's Outreach Training Schools (OTS). In our OTS, young people and adults are trained to go to the next level in their service to God. Pray for On The Go as we train believers to make a difference in their generation.

Follow Christ's Example

Follow Christ's Example By Carey Smith

"Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.' When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there." Matthew 19:13-15

For those of you who know me, you know that I enjoy playing with children. At times it is hard to keep up with their energy, as many parents will testify, but nothing compares to their giggles as they tackle me, or their laughter as I chase them.

I grew up as the individual that everyone teased, picked on, and made fun of. For years, the only people I believed actually liked me were my parents. As I got a little older, I began to hear about Jesus who scolded His adult disciples for not allowing the children to come to Him. He would use children as the example to His disciples when they asked Him how they should live and behave.

For years, I knew that my mom, my dad, and Jesus loved me. Their love got me through many tough years, and even though I knew they loved me, it would have been great if another person had showed me that kind of love.

That is why today, as an adult, I try to let every child know that they are important to me. I want them to feel that I love them, care for them, and have fun playing with them. I want them to know that even if they feel that no one else cares for them, I do. And why do I love them, because Jesus does.

Do you want to be like Jesus? Love the children. Love them by being a listening ear, a jungle gym, and yes, even a diaper changer. Who knows, there may be one child who feels lost and alone, but your smile and compassion can change that.

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray today that your life and ministry can make a difference in the life of a child.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's USA Outreach Effort. God has placed a United States effort on the heart and mind of the On The Go Team. Three key objectives are sharing, praying, and training in every county in the USA using On The Go Advance Teams, Training Teams, Planning Teams, Prayer Teams, GoTeams, and Outreach Efforts.

Our Source of Strength

Our Source of Strength - Joan Cook

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

Our family has had Yorkshire Terriers for many years. They are very small dogs, weighing around four pounds each. One of our dogs, Mindy did not see herself as small and would fight to protect our family and her territory. Often times, Mindy fought with our neighbor's Chow and Golden Retriever only to learn that she did not have the power behind her bark. She always retreated to the familiar territory of our front porch.

As Christians, the devil wants nothing more than to have us retreat from our battles and to think that we are not powerful enough. And, alone we are not! Unlike my little dog who barked loudly, then ran home at any sign of trouble, we can stand and face our foe with confidence knowing that our Lord is there helping us through our battle.

How much strength do you need today? Are you facing a situation that you do not think you can handle? Is there a problem in your life that seems insurmountable?

Then you need to go directly to your source of strength! Jesus will give you His might and power to be able to withstand anything, to be able to do anything, to be able to be anything! Jesus said that we could do greater works than even He did! That is pretty incredible!

If you want to start living the victorious Christian life and stop allowing Satan to defeat you into thinking you are not strong enough, good enough, smart enough, rich enough, or even thin enough, tap into His power source and be all you can be for Christ! Remember, YOU can do all things through Christ who strengthens YOU!

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray that God will forgive you for often times trying to live the Christian life in your own strength. Praise God that you that you can do all things through His strength.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Kenya GoTeam. Praise God for each individual decision for Ch

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's Performing Arts Team. Pray for our team as we minister through drama, puppets, interpretive dance, and music. Our Performing Arts Teams are made up of volunteers and On The Go staffers who travel around the USA to local churches and events sharing the Good News.

Faithfulness

Faithfulness by Joan Cook

"If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself." 1 Timothy 2:13

Have you ever said or done something and then wished you could take it back? I know I have. I constantly get to dine on shoe pie because I put my foot in my mouth. Just when I think I have my life all together, and pat myself on the back for being such a wonderful person, I fail miserably.

I may have missed an opportunity to share Christ with someone, or lost my patience and said something in an angry tone of voice to a friend. I might have intended on reading my Bible every morning, but when I went to bed at night I've realized that once again my day has been too busy for my Heavenly Father.

Even in all of these things and in the ways that I constantly do not measure up to be the person I know Christ wants me to be, I am encouraged by Paul's writing in 1 Timothy 2:13. Even when we are faithless and do not portray a positive image of our Lord, He remains faithful to us.

Do all that you know to do in Christ, but make note of this: When you fall down in your Christian walk, Christ will be there for you and pick you up.

Remember: He is always a faithful God!

Personal Prayer Focus: Praise God for your faithfulness.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Keith Cook's Hands-On-Training Events. This is our Outreach Training School on the road. Keith and the On The Go Team share all across the USA and Worldwide in fun and creative ways that people can serve Jesus and make an impact in this generation!

God Watches Over His Own

God Watches Over His Own - by Heidi Chapman Beall

"The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore." Psalms 121:7, 8

I was searching through the Bible one morning seeking a passage to read. Then I came across a "help page". It stated, "When you leave home for labor or travel, read Psalms 121." So, I gave it a try and as I read I just knew I'd found the perfect Psalm for those long travel days on mission trips or vacations. It says that He will not slumber nor sleep as He watches over you, and believe me, that is a major comfort while on a trip. He watches over you as you travel, and He is always there to call upon.

God keeps you from all harm and will never let you down. So when those moments come when you do not think you will make it through, just read Psalms 121 and call upon the Lord! He will be there for you!

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray for pastors, missionaries, and evangelists today as they travel at home and abroad. Pray for their safety and "Divine Appointments".

What is Purity?

What is Purity? by Keith Cook

"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things." Philippians 4:8

As Christians we have a higher call on our lives. At the time we give our lives to Christ that escalates us to a level different from that of non-Christians. The world is watching Christians and we often fail them. Some of us daily!

We are called to live our lives as an expression of Christ's life. If we as Christians do not live our lives as a testimony and example, how then should we expect others to want a relationship with Christ.

A large problem with our society is the fact that they do not live pure lives. Contrary to popular belief there are consequences for our actions today. So we are faced with the question, "What is Christian purity?

The Bible lays out many guidelines for Christians. However, we must individually live pure. That means at times we're going to have to make a conscious decision to live out our purity. At times it may be very hard.

Peer Pressure is not something that you only face as a teenager. All throughout life people will contribute to your decision making process in a negative or positive way.

There is no better time than today to make a commitment for purity in your life. Not just sexual purity but Christian purity. Living your life in purity is the best testimony you could ever have.

1) What are some requirements concerning purity that your culture has imposed on you?

2) What are some of your Christian requirements/standards concerning purity?

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray that God will guard your heart as you  to live out your Christian faith based on personal convictions and the truth from God's Word.

On The Go Prayer Focus: GoTeam Missions Projects. Pray today for On The Go's GoTeams. GoTeams are teams of young people and adults ministering throughout the world who want to make an impact in another individual's life for Christ.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's Neighborhood Outreach Program. In reality, very little is being done to reach people in many communities across the USA. On The Go is striving to train local Christians and help them develop programs that can systematically and permanently reach real needs in their neighborhoods.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.

Titanic, the Unsinkable Ship

Titanic, the Unsinkable Ship by Laurie McTier

"I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

How many people have dreamed their lives unsinkable?

How many have stated that even God Himself could not destroy their empire?

How many people find their treasures in worldly riches, fame and success, yet never take the time to find God? What emptiness they must feel deep down inside!

While watching the movie Titanic, my heart was moved by the numerous people who did not make it to the lifeboats. There were approximately 2,200 people on the ship, yet only 800 got on the lifeboats. Out of the 1,400 people who went down with the ship, only 6 individuals were rescued.

There were 20 lifeboats, which should have fit 30-50 people each, yet many only had 10-15 people in them. The lifeboats proved to be too cramped to fit their style. None of the 20 boats turned around to rescue the perishing. One of the lifeboats from the Carpathia did return to the 1,400 but it was too late. There were only six survivors by that time. The other 1,396 froze to death in the North Atlantic.

What application could this story have in our lives? How many of us have greedily thought our lives unsinkable? What fools we have been! What about souls today, the individuals who have not found the "Lifeboat?" Would you change your course to help them find their lifeboat - Jesus Christ? John 14:6 reads "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man comes unto the Father, but by me."

Devotion and commitment. The band played "Nearer My God to Thee" right to the very end. They had a job to entertain to the very end. What is our job? It is our job to rescue the perishing...to tell them of a Savior who loves them so much He willingly gave His life for them.

God forgive me for the times I have seen souls perishing in the depths of their sin and have not even lifted a finger to tell them of Christ's love. As I read the words to Fanny J Crosby's hymn entitled "Rescue the perishing," my heart is convicted that I must by about my Father's business of the Great Commission.

"Rescue the Perishing, care for the dying
Wrap them in pity from sin and the grave.
Weep over the erring one, lift up the fallen.
Tell them of Jesus the mighty to save.
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying
Jesus is merciful. Jesus will save."

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray that God will give you a burden and urgency in your heart to rescue the perishing, that they might not die alone, but that they may have hope in Jesus Christ.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The physical, spiritual, emotional, and financial needs of people hurting all over the United States and Worldwide. As God gives us opportunity in times of crisis we need to rapidly move to help.

Boldly Proclaiming Jesus

Boldly Proclaiming Jesus by Keith Cook

"Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ." Acts 28:31

What makes a person bold? Does Christ want only Superman and Wonder Woman type Christians to follow Him into battle against Satan?

True boldness is "Holy Boldness". Holy Boldness comes when one is trusting in Christ for strength.

When I stand up in the streets to preach, I must admit, each time I am just a little bit afraid. I wonder if I will preach the right thing. I fear that someone might try to stop me from preaching, and the list can go on and on. I have a choice to make at that moment. Do I let my fear and natural inferiority complex take over, or do I rely on God's call on my life and His promise to be with me as I serve Him?

Boldness is not automatic or continual. As I face a new situation I must call on Christ for guidance. He always gives me the right words to say, He shows me what to do and He blesses as I step out in faith and trust in Him.

He will do the same thing for you. It may take "baby steps" or you may go out with "fear and trembling," but you will be riding the waves of God's perfect will for your life out in the deep water.

It sure is fun to be out there with God. Few people are willing to go.

The Bible says not to worry, just be ready. "Having done all you can do to Stand, Stand!"

1. What are some areas that often cause you to be afraid when you think about serving God?

2. What do you plan to do the next time fear tries to rob you of your power and opportunity to serve God?

3. If you had all the power you needed to do anything for God what would you do or attempt? Why? Why NOT?

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray for Holy Boldness. Pray that you will be all that you can be for Jesus Christ.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's GoKids Clubs. The focus of GoKids Clubs is to present a clear Gospel message to young children in our festivals, missions, and local neighborhoods. Pray for On The Go as we minister to boys and girls and share with them the love of Jesus Christ.

Assurance of Heaven

Assurance of Heaven by Dr. Ken Mattox, DDS

"However, as it is written: 'No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.'"  1 Corinthians 2:9

Dr. R. G. Lee was one of the most powerful preachers I have ever heard. The first time I heard him preach, I felt the conviction that I should renew my vows to the Lord Jesus Christ. His delivery, his vocabulary, and his sermons were just spell bounding.

Dr. Lee was up early in the morning and tried to visit at least six people before lunch and tell them about Jesus. Dr. Lee wasted no opportunity to preach against the evil of sin. He walked into a fraternity house one night as they were having one of their drunken parties. Dr. Lee preached a sermon right there on the spot, and another one on Sunday. Because of his heart for evangelism, Dr. Lee averaged baptizing five people every Sunday throughout his ministry. As his life was drawing close to an end, he began to share with those closest to him some of the visions he was seeing. Although he had written a book about Heaven, his exact words were, "I never even came close!"

God has promised us that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. If we place our faith and trust in Him, we will never perish; God has already given to us eternal life. God is preparing for us a home in Heaven. Our minds can not even conceive the greatness of His glory and all that He has in store for us.

In John 14:1-3, 6, we read the following: "'Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.' Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'"

The gift of eternal life is the greatest gift that anyone can receive. Heaven is a wonderful place, prepared by a loving Father for His children. Live your life today with a heavenly mindset. As you proceed through the path of life today, may God open your eyes to opportunities to share about Jesus.

(This devotion was taken as an excerpt with permission from Dr. Mattox's latest book entitled "A Light in the Darkness". This book contains scripture references that have impacted Dr. Mattox's life and illustrations from some of experiences on the mission field. To receive your own personal copy of his book, please contact On The Go Ministries. Dr. Mattox went home to Heaven in October, 2006. He has been such a blessing to all of us fortunate to know and minister with him. Thank you Dr. Mattox!)

Personal Prayer Focus: Praise God for His unconditional love and your home in Heaven that He is preparing for you!

Sisters

Sisters - by Keith Cook

"Say to wisdom, 'You are my sister,' and call understanding your intimate friend;" Proverbs 7:4

God wants us to call wisdom our sister but what kind of wisdom can we gain from a sister?

When I was a young boy my father bought my sister and I a brand new swing set. It was a real prize. I was so proud of that new swing set; I was very controlling over it too.

One day my sister wanted to swing on the metal swing called the seesaw. She was scared to swing on the other swings. But on the seesaw she could hold onto the metal bar that attached to the swing frame.

As she was coming near the swing, I, without much thought, ran past her very abruptly and pushed the seesaw at her. As the seesaw went hurling towards my sister, my mind quickly discerned that I had initiated a very bad situation. Every fiber of my being went numb because I could not stop what I had set in motion. My fears became reality, as I watched the metal seat hit her in the face, causing a large gash. I was shocked. I thought I had killed her.

My mother rushed her to the hospital. The doctor did a great job sewing her up but the scars I had would never heal. I felt bad. I felt like a brute. I could not forgive myself for such a careless gesture.

For days after the accident my sister received my "super boy" efforts to make everything up to her. However, sisters have a way of taking advantage of brothers. They do this not by strength or meanness, but by kindness and tenderness. Most guys are unprepared for kindness. My sister kept being nice and assuring me she was fine and felt no pain. In the mean time, she was asking me to go get this or to please turn on her favorite cartoon. She was very good at getting back at me!

After a while, life got back to normal but inside my mind and heart I had learned a valuable lesson. Even though sisters can be different, they sure are a gift from God. It is such a blessing when you realize that your sibling has been a best friend, long before you knew you needed a friend. So wisdom really is "My Sister!"

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray the God will continually give you wisdom and understanding.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's "Adopt An Evangelist" program. This program provides funding and support for various missions and evangelists around the world.

Investment and Trust

Investment and Trust by Carey Smith

"Jesus answered, 'If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.' When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth." Matthew 19:21-22

There are so many lessons that we can learn from this story.  The rich young ruler wants eternal life and he knows he can get it from Jesus.  But Jesus asks something very difficult of the man and the man is unable to give it.

I have worked in the financial industry for many years and one thing I have learned is that when people go to a financial advisor, they are in essence saying to the person, "I believe you can do a better job than I can."  Why can the Advisor do a better job?  Is it their experience or knowledge?  Whatever the reason, when you invest with them, you are trusting them to do a better job than you.

How are you with Jesus?  Have you trusted Him with your life or just the burden of your sin?  The rich young ruler may never have understood what he was missing.  Jesus was asking for his life, not a token of his appreciation to receive Jesus' eternal gift.  Jesus knows he can manage our lives better than we can.

I admit that I daily need to trust and believe Jesus is a better manager than I am.  He can manage my child, my marriage, my job, and certainly my finances better than I can.  Recently, or in the near future, some of us will be receiving monetary stimulus packages from the government.  I wonder what would happen if we decided to turn that over to Jesus and let Him manage it.  Just a thought.

Personal Prayer Focus: Yield every area of your life to God. Allow Him to be your personal manager.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The GoAudio Podcasts and Radio Ministries. Currently we are producing various programs which go over the internet and international airwaves. Pray that God will continue to bless the On The GoAudio Podcasts and that He will expand the listening base. Visit OnTheGo.org to hear past broadcasts.

What Is Real Salvation

What Is Real Salvation by Keith Cook

"But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him." 1 Corinthians 8:6

Yesterday, we discussed Fake Salvation and what Salvation is not. Today, we will look at what true salvation in Christ really is.

Saving faith, true belief, and real salvation come from putting your trust and confidence in Jesus. Then you ask Jesus to pay the penalty and forgive you of your sin. Next you receive, by faith, your free gift of an eternal home in Heaven and God's provision of strength and guidance while living on Earth. All this can be yours! Right Now!

The Devil will never give in to God's will, but you can. You can come to Jesus for the right reason. You don't have to play a game with God. You don't have to pretend to be a Christian; you can really know you are a Child of God.

Right now you can pray and ask Jesus to come into your heart (whole life). The choice is yours. Decide today. Don't wait any longer. Your prayer can be something like this:

Dear God, I am sorry for my sin. I cannot save myself. Jesus you died for me on the cross. I believe you are God. Come into my heart and save me today. I will live by your power. Give me courage and strength to live for you. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. Thank you for taking me to Heaven when I die.

When one prays a prayer like the one above with a genuine desire for Christ to be their Saviour, the Bible says, "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved!"

If you have prayed and asked Jesus to come into your heart (life) the Bible says He did. I would suggest you immediately contact a person you know is a genuine Christian and ask them to help you learn more about your new life in Christ. You may want to call a local pastor.

Your new life will include Bible study, prayer on a daily basis, regular church attendance, and sharing your own love for Jesus with others.

Learning and growing in Christ is something we should be experiencing all the time. Don't be ashamed to ask for help from a local church, a minister, or another Christian.

I thank God for your decision and want to hear from you. I would love to send you some material on how to live for Jesus! For spiritual help or information write, email, visit our web site, or contact a local church in your area. May Christ continue to bless and keep you in the center of His will.

Personal Prayer Focus: Praise God for His Provision of Eternal Life to those who place their trust in Him. Pray for New Believers as they seek to Grow in their Christian life.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The Development Ministries of On The Go. This ministry team helps On The Go stay on the go!

Fake Salvation

Fake Salvation by Keith Cook

"But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him." 1 Corinthians 8:6

In survey after survey the majority of people in North America say that they believe in God and want to go to Heaven when they die? There are not many people who want to go to Hell and spend eternity (forever) without God!

Fake Salvation Is Coming To Jesus To Escape Hell

Jesus said, "If anyone wishes to come after me..." Surely Jesus knows that people want to come to Him and have peace with God and receive life forever. Why would He have to say that?  Jesus may have said this to show that there is a vast difference between wanting to escape Hell and really wanting to come to Him.

Jesus wanted people to come to Him because they were choosing to be His people, not just for eternal fire insurance to keep them out of Hell. There are many people who are scared to death of Hell and dying. All you have to do to get them to say they trust Jesus is to talk about Hell. Jesus would say this is not coming to Him. This example would represent running away from Hell, not coming to Jesus. There is a big difference.

Fake Salvation Is Coming To Jesus Because It Is Popular

Many people come to Jesus because it is the popular thing to do. People often say they are born again in order to gain favor or approval from someone. When I was in high school, most of the guys soon learned that if they wanted to date the "popular" girls, they had to go to church. So, every Sunday morning all the hung over, love sick guys were in church. Many a young woman was tricked into thinking "Mr. Right" was right, on the basis of a false commitment.

Religion is big business these days. Every major shopping center has a Christian bookstore and most metropolitan areas have Christian radio and T.V. stations. The Good News is popular. The sad thing about a real commitment to Jesus is that it is not really going to be a popular thing for long.

After I was saved, my entire vocabulary changed, my friends changed, along with my old habits. I went through a very dry spell as far as popularity was concerned. If my faith had been built on being popular, I would have dropped out, proving my commitment was not real.

Fake Salvation Is Coming To Jesus To Get Something

Some people make promises with God while in the middle of tragic and difficult situations. This often happens when they are financially burdened or when they are suffering physically. I have even heard some people say they "got saved" in order to have God bless them financially or heal their bodies. Some prosperity gospel teachers and hyper-healers fuel this practice, not the Bible! This is an example of coming to Jesus, just to get something.

Fake Salvation Is Coming To Jesus To Get Someone Off Their Back

Many young people say they are saved just to get their mother or grandma off their back. Wayward spouses often try this! When someone makes a false commitment they may get people off their back, but they inherit a heavy sense of guilt. Deep inside their spirit they know they are no better off. God knows that this is a fake decision and He does not live in them. A person who dies in this state does not have a place prepared for them in Heaven.

Fake Salvation Is Coming To Jesus Without Forsaking False God's

In the Orient, some people will say they want Jesus to come into their lives and they say they accept Him. What they actually do is accept Jesus along with other gods like Mohammed, Buddha, Confucius, etc... All they have done is add another god to their list. They do not want to offend our God. In our culture, some people who think they are born from above are really not because all they have done is tack Jesus onto materialism, humanism, legalism, and countless other gods. They say they owe Jesus. Yet they never talk about Him because they are embarrassed. They sing about how great it is to be a Christian, but they will not take a stand on moral issues. They say "times have changed" and we need to be culturally sensitive. They are still holding on to other "gods."

Easy Believism Is Fake Salvation

All these shallow examples of "easy believism" will not change a person's life. Their lives are not built on the solid rock, Jesus, but on sinking sand, religion. This kind of faith will not hold up in crisis times. The real power of Christianity is Jesus and He will not come in and share a vessel with any other doctrine or religion: not humanism, legalism, materialism, or moral living.

All of these reasons for coming to Jesus are wrong, and in reality, they are not coming to Jesus at all. If you personally have come to Jesus by any road other than that of the Cross, through His shed blood, because of your sinful, helpless condition, then you are still lost and on a one-way street that leads straight to Hell itself. Jesus is your only way out!

Take The Fake Salvation Test

I want you to take a test. Now my son, Keith Jr., has a fantastic mind and he can memorize and recite long passages of facts he has gleaned from books. He really likes tests - he is just like his mother. I, on the other hand, hate tests. But it won't take a rocket scientist to pass my little quiz.

My test only has three questions:
1. Do you believe in Jesus?
2. Do you believe in the Bible as the Word of God?
3. Do you believe going to church is a good idea?

Now think with me. How did you answer these questions? You probably said yes to all three. Well I've got news for you. You just passed the "Devil Test." You could be in the same condition as the Devil, because the Devil believes, just like the majority of people living today believe. Let me explain. The Devil believes in Jesus! He knows Jesus is the Son of God. The Devil knows the Bible is the Word of God. He probably can quote great amounts of scripture! He also goes to church. He sends his demons regularly. So what makes the kind of belief you have any different from the Devil's?

Tomorrow, we will share about Real Salvation, and discuss true saving faith in Christ.

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray fervently for the lost who are deceived and holding onto "Fake Salvation". Pray that God will convict and challenge their hearts and that they will put their faith in Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith.

On The Go Prayer Focus:  On The Go Prayer Focus: Joan Cook's "Women On The Go" Ministries. Joan's "Women On The Go" programs are implemented at women's conferences, local churches, retreats, and separate stand-alone events. God has given her a burden to minister to and encourage women in their walk with the Lord. Pray for Joan as she ministers and shares from her heart and as she presents motivational, evangelistic programs, materials, and leadership to and for women that will challenge and motivate them to a deeper walk with the Lord.

Opportunities

Opportunities by Joan Cook

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God." 2 Timothy 1:7, 8

While at the mall recently, I came across a nail salon, so I decided to go in and have my nails done. When I walked into the salon I quickly noticed it was an Asian establishment. I knew that my nails would look great when they were finished, as most Asians who do manicures and pedicures are wonderful. I sat down to get started and noticed a small gold Buddha. I could not help but ask about it. I was then informed that my attendant, Tina, was a Buddhist. She began to tell me all about Buddha and her "religion". I sat quietly and attentively as she talked for the next 15 minutes about her god.

When she was through, I began to tell her about my faith. I used the On The Go method of witnessing by talking about the ordinary (her job, homeland, etc...), sharing my testimony, and presenting the Gospel. I told her of my personal relationship with Jesus Christ and how I came to know Him as my Lord and Savior.

She responded by saying, "Well, you know Christianity and Buddhism are a lot alike. They are both wonderful religions." I then told her that Jesus Christ is the one true God. And there is no other God besides Him. She did not respond but quickly changed the subject. I did not feel the urge to push Tina, so I told her I would be praying for her.

I pray that another Christian will water the seed that was planted that day. Could that someone be you?

Personal Prayer Focus: Lord, I pray I will always be willing to water or plant the seed of You in someone's life.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's GoCare ministry. This is our acts of kindness and benevolence ministry department. The focus of our GoCare ministry is to reach out to physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of hurting individuals and to build bridges between churches and their communities.

Scuba Diving: Rest in Me

Scuba Diving: Rest in Me by Laurie McTier

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;" Isaiah 43:1-3

A few years ago, each of our staff members were challenged to take scuba diving lessons. We knew that this challenge could reap great benefits. As we worked together during each course, our staff drew closer to one another. We had to work together in order that our goals would be accomplished and each diver could receive their certification. I noted that when a diver was in trouble or having difficulty, there were immediately two or three buddies there to assist.

During the scuba lessons, my first and foremost fear was breathing underwater. The oxygen tank was there to provide the necessary oxygen. I had to learn to relax, stop fighting the regulator, and let the oxygen perform its duties.

The next morning in my devotional time, God gave me an inner peace to continue the course. Scuba diving is similar to the daily Christian walk. Trust, Faith and Belief. Do we truly believe our equipment (the Word of God) is functional and effective? Do we really believe that God is who He says He is? Do we take Him at His Word? You may not be going scuba diving today, but God wants you to rest in Him, no matter what trial comes your way. "Fear not...For I am the Lord your God."

Personal Prayer Focus: Praise God for His Omnipresence and Power in your life. Praise Him for the ability to have Peace and Confidence in the midst of storms.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go Ministry Supporters. It takes teamwork to make the dream work! Our ministry supporters have made commitments to play a vital part of our team through praying, sharing, caring, going, and growing. Thank you for joining us last week in praying for the Nigeria SOE (School of Evangelism). Continue to pray for Keith Cook as he speaks in several churches in Nigeria today and then begins his flight back to the USA.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.

Positive People

Positive People by Joan Cook

"For I have chosen Him in order that he may counsel his children and his household after him and keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice..." Genesis 18:19

We are blessed to be a blessing. We all have many people who in the course of our lives have influenced us positively or negatively. As I look back on my teenage years, I can remember individuals who had positive influences on my life. One of those people was my high school basketball coach, Coach Daley. What a kind spirit he had. He taught me that you could maintain self-control, even when things were not going your way.

Another was my youth pastor, John Greene. He taught me that serving Jesus did not have to be boring. We are called to be the salt and light in this world. People need salt to live and they are attracted to light. People need the Jesus we possess, and they should be attracted to us because of our spirit. We need to be fun and full of life as we serve the Lord.

The third person would be my Mother. She taught me that strength and determination were qualities that I wanted in my life. By being such a strong leader of our family, she always made sure that we knew Christ was our source. And she taught us that apart from Him we could do nothing.

But, the person who has influenced me the most would have to be my husband, Keith. Keith has taught me so many things about living the Christian life. In watching him and his walk for over thirty eight years, I have seen someone who constantly listens to the Lord. Someone who is completely sold out to the calling the Lord has placed upon him, someone who exemplifies the fruit of the spirit in his life daily. Although, many are attracted to his enthusiastic spirit, he always points them in the direction of the Lord, not wanting to gain glory for himself.

Do you have someone in your life that is a positive influence on you? Are you in turn influencing someone else? If not, look around for someone who can help you become all you can be in Christ. Also, look for someone you can help strengthen in his or her walk with the Lord.

Personal Prayer Focus: Praise God for those who have mentored you in your walk with Christ. Pray that God will enable you to be sensitive to those to whom He would have you to strengthen and mentor.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The GoTeam Short Term Missions Projects and GoTeam Members. GoTeams are made up of young people and adults who voluntarily go on an On The Go mission project around the world and are making a strategic impact for Christ.  Pray for Keith as he instructs, challenges, and encourages Believers at the School of Evangelism and Outreach Training School in Lagos, Nigeria. Please pray for each of these evangelists and their families as they minister to Muslims on a regular basis. This week they will learn creative ideas and tools that God can use to reach and encourage the lost and draw their hearts to Him.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.

You Have Made a Difference!

You Have Made a Difference! by Keith Cook

"if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully." Romans 12:8

When our team goes into an area and ministers for Jesus it is always a special time for us, and our entire team puts all we have into the effort.

My most enjoyable job on each outreach is to go to each person on the project and say, "Thank you for giving to the Lord. You have made a special impact on our trip. You have labored, prayed, shared, preached, and done so much for God."

Often I will say, "One day you may be walking around Heaven and someone will come to you and say, "You don't know me and we have never met, but you went on a mission trip and helped save a young boy's life. That young boy became a Christian and that young boy shared Jesus with me. I'm here today because you cared enough to sacrifice and give up comforts for the Gospel's sake."

When you do any work for Christ I believe God often looks down on your service and He brags to the Heavenly Host..."Look at MY child, he (she) has fought a good fight and finished the course."

Have you been making a difference for God in all God has given you to do? If so, then I also want to thank you, just like I thank our team, for giving to the Lord and working for His kingdom.

We all want to do our part till Jesus comes. Look around today and ask God where He would have you make a difference. Find some deed that no one wants to do. Find that mission that no one goes to help. Talk with that person who never has a friend. Make a difference today.

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray for God to give you a vision of what He would have you do next for Him!

On The Go Prayer Focus: Keith Cook Crusades, Celebrations, and Festivals. God has given Keith the opportunity and privilege of sharing the message of Christ both stateside and internationally. During each opportunity, Keith presents a joyful and enthusiastic, yet powerful and clear presentation of the Gospel and a call to commitment to Christ. Pray for Keith this week as he ministers to local evangelists, pastors, and church leaders in Lagos, Nigeria.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.

Friends Are Friends Forever

Friends Are Friends Forever by Keith Cook

"Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend." Proverbs 27:17

News Event: On The Go Ministries is sponsoring a School of Evangelism (SOE) and Outreach Training School (OTS) in Lagos, Nigeria May 31-June 3, 2018.

Friends Are Friends Forever but they don't cook, clean, work, or live with you every day. One of the greatest struggles you will have in your adult life is balancing the needs of your work, family, self, and friends.

Follow these rules for friends to make your life more productive:

1. Do not let one or two friends monopolize your time

2. Do not let any plans or activities with friends jeopardize your relationship with your family or faith

3. Discipline the time you spend with your friends each week

4. Make sure you make time to get with your friends each week

5. Never talk to your friends about things that you ought to be talking to your spouse or parents

6. Help each of your friends be all they can be in Christ

7. Pray for your friends

Friends Are Friends Forever. Practice these principles, and you will be richly rewarded, along with your friends.

Personal Prayer Focus:  Take a few moments to pray for your friends that you have in your life right now. On The Go Prayer Focus: God to send new friends into your life to add flavor.

On The Go Prayer Focus: All the local churches, committees, and leaders who will be working with On The Go Ministries and the Keith Cook Team in creative outreach efforts in the United States and around the world. Please pray for safety as Keith Cook travels to Lagos, Nigeria. Pray that all connections will be on time and that he will arrive Strong, Energized, and Equipped to lead in the School of Evangelism.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.

Face the Truth

Face the Truth by Keith Cook

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

I believe that today we need to face the truth about where we are with God. We need to look in the mirror and see clearly who we are and where we are spiritually.

The first thing that we need to face the truth about is ourselves. The Bible says that all of us have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) We have all sinned, and therefore, our self is not good enough to get us into the Kingdom of Heaven and make us right with God.

We also need to face the truth about Jesus. Jesus is either who He said He was and who He said He is, or He is a liar and a lunatic. Jesus said, "I am the Truth," and I believe He is the truth. The Bible says He is the truth. History says He is the truth. He is the One, True Savior of the world.

We must face the truth about eternity. Where are we going to spend eternity? Are we going to live forever with God in paradise, or, are we going to live forever in Hell with the devil. We have a choice to make.

We need to live up to who God has called us to be. God has called us to life on the highest plain, and we are living down here in this present world and in this standard. God wants us to rise above the mindset of this present world.

Today, choose to face the truth. Face the truth about yourself, about Jesus, and eternity. Live forever for Jesus Christ before it is too late.

Personal Prayer Focus:  Pray that God will give you a greater sense of urgency and burden to share the Gospel message with those who need to hear the Truth.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Keith Cook, Joan Cook, the U.S.A. Staff, and On The Go Board of Directors, as they add leadership and direction for the ongoing ministries of the Keith Cook Team and On The Go.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.

Praise God in the Midst of Storms

Praise God in the Midst of Storms - by Keith Cook

"You who fear him, trust in the LORD- he is their help and shield. " Psalms 115:11 NAS

News Event: Lagos, Nigeria School of Evangelism May 31-June 3, 2018. Pray for Keith Cook and other team members as they train local evangelists, pastors, and church leaders. Pray that Keith and each participant will have Holy Boldness, Strength, Clarity, and Divine Appointments.

During one of my trips to the Philippines, I was suddenly made aware that I was in the midst of many storms. There were typhoon warnings going off and the very roads we were traveling on were washing out from under us. We were racing frantically to try to cross a bridge that was the only way out of the war torn and terrorist infested area. The storm waters were rising fast and suddenly washed our bridge away. The government and people's army were fighting all around. Bullets were flying and there was no way to know who was friend or foe. I was battling all kinds of emotional, physical and mental storms while being in very real storms of nature.

Yet, right in the middle of all the storms there was somehow peace. Jesus was with me. Jesus was comforting me, and He was ministering to my troubled mind.

Eventually, on my journey in the Philippines, I began to see each storm and situation as a blessing and opportunity to trust God more and rest in His perfect will for my life.

You may be facing storms of pain and doubt right now in your life. I have been told that the safest place to be during a storm is right in the middle, or in the eye, of a hurricane. Right now you need to rest in the middle of God's will for your life. He is your help and shield. He is your Heavenly lifeline.

Personal Prayer Focus: Focus on Jesus today and give Him the storms in your life.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The Interns who faithfully come to On The Go each year to work for Christ and learn how to do ministry that matters for the kingdom of God.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.

A Memorial Stone

A Memorial Stone by Laurie McTier

"And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them." Exodus 24:12

I praise God for the opportunity He has given me to serve with On The Go Ministries. As we work with young people and adults worldwide, we often ask them to draw a Life Map of their walk with Christ. This tool encourages them to share their faith and also allows them to see their spiritual journey, including mountain peaks and valleys and times of growth and detours. This life map can serve as a memorial stone, a testimony of God's hand at work in His masterpiece.

Recently as I was studying God's Word, He reminded me of the memorial stones that He provided Moses as he was leading the Children of Israel. Moses sensed a need to get alone with God, and God revealed Himself in a mighty way. As a result, God gave Moses the Ten Commandments that he then shared with the Children of Israel as rules to live by. (Exodus 20)

Thou shall have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.
Thou shall not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Honor thy father and thy mother.
Thou shall not kill.
Thou shall not commit adultery.
Thou shall not steal.
Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
Thou shall not covet.

God's Word provides us with rules to live by. Make these memorial stones personally as you strive to pattern your life after Christ.

Personal Prayer Focus: Praise God for Memorial Stones that God has utilized in your life to challenge and instruct you.

 On The Go Prayer Focus: The Safety In Travel for each On The Go staffer and GoTeam volunteer.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.

By Faith We Stand

By Faith We Stand by On The Go Staff

Today the staff at On The Go would like to encourage you to spend some time meditating on the following verses on FAITH. We believe that faith can move mountains that seem impossible, and by faith you can serve the Lord in any capacity He has called you to serve!

"But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour." Matthew 9:22

"Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt." Matthew 15:28

"After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward." Genesis 15:1

"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." Matthew 17:20

"And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing." 1 Corinthians 13:2

"Where there is no vision, the people perish:" Proverbs 29:18

Stand in faith today! God will reward you for your faithfulness.

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray that God will continue to expand your ministry as you seek to faithfully serve Him.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's GoCamp ministry that trains believers all over the world how to share their faith.

Prayer Warriors

Prayer Warriors by Keith Cook

"Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should." Colossians 4:2-4

News Event: Keith Cook and On The Go Ministries will be hosting a School of Evangelism May 31 through June 3, 2018 in Lagos, Nigeria. Please pray for each participant as they are challenged to share their faith with family and friends. Continually pray for open doors in Nigeria.

Prayer is a vital part of every aspect of our ministry here at On The Go. We covet your prayers as we enter into the summer with our GoTeams ministering internationally and throughout the USA.

Where prayer abounds, there is power, strength, and blessings. Your prayers enable our GoTeams to effectively minister and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Here are some key notes to remember as you pray for On The Go:

1. Pray that our GoTeams will be devoted to God as they minister. Our strength and wisdom comes directly from God.

2. Pray for Safety. Pray a hedge of protection around our teams as they minister. Pray for safety and the health of our team members.

3. Pray for Open Doors of Ministry. As we travel abroad and in the USA, we are continually seeking God's divine opportunities to serve. Pray that God will open doors before our teams and expand our ministry in each country that our GoTeams are ministering in.

4. Pray for Boldness for each team member that they might share God's love.

5. Pray for Victory over Fear, Opposition, and Spiritual Warfare.

6. Pray for Discernment. Pray for each team member that God will give them wisdom and discernment as they clearly present the Gospel Message.

7. Pray for Divine Appointments. Pray that the hearts of the individuals our teams minister to will be ready to hear about God's love and open to His call to repentance.

Prayer plays a vital part of our team! Without prayer there is no power. Thank you for praying for our On The Go staff and our GoTeams!

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray for Divine Appointments as our GoTeams minister and share God's love.

On The Go Prayer Focus: All the Ministry Partners, Missions, Missionaries that On The Go ministers with. It takes team work to make the dream of reaching the world a reality.
