The Lord had just given Moses specific instructions. He even gave solutions to all his excuses. Finally, Moses simply states that he doesn’t want to do what the Lord called him to do. We know the rest of the story; God wins out, and after many troubles and setbacks, He uses stubborn Moses to deliver His people, Israel. The road ahead was to be difficult for Moses. But if we were to meet Moses today, he certainly would say that he was glad that he obeyed the Lord’s calling.
Pray for people that God has called, like Ajith Singh, to willingly embrace their call for His Kingdom.
by Bob Martin, India Gospel Outreach
As a young man in the 1980s, Ajith Singh was a schoolteacher who joined Sikh terrorists as a guerrilla fighter to gain independence from Hindu-dominated India. Tens of thousands of people died in the violence. His own guerrilla activities brought death to numerous people. Over time, all his murderous work began to affect him. He became heartsick when more than 500 young women in his town lost their husbands in the fruitless struggle for independence. In the end, his own son lost his life in the fight for independence.
During this time of soul-searching and inner struggle, he came into contact with a Christian evangelist. When he heard the gospel, he knew that this is what he had sought his entire life. He committed his life to Christ and quickly heard his call to join God in His work of setting the captives free in Punjab.
Pastor Singh studied at Punjab Bible College in Ludhiana. Punjab Bible College, started by India Gospel Outreach in 1992, has trained over 1,100 evangelists and pastors who reach unreached Hindus and Sikhs in Punjab and northwest India. Singh is now a bold witness for Christ, especially among Punjabi Sikhs.
Pray for open hearts among those Pastor Singh reaches out to.
