Below is an excerpt from “The Lord’s Work Done in the Lord’s Way,” which was originally a message spoken by Dr. K.P. Yohannan at Gospel for Asia. When our ministry to the people around us is done as a ministry unto the Lord—doing His work in His way—there will be no striving. There will be no human sweat. Why? Because sweat signifies man’s effort. The first time sweat is mentioned in the Bible is in Genesis 3:19. Because Adam had… Read more

Being aware of who we are in God’s kingdom is important for our stability on our journey with Christ. Has it ever sunk into your heart that we as followers belong to the same family as Jesus? We are even named after Him. And “Christian” is not just our new family name; it’s our whole identity. God desires for us to understand our identity in Him because it will anchor our Christian walk and give us inner strength, freedom, confidence… Read more

Just a few weeks ago, I was visiting with a GFA-supported worker in Mumbai, India whose work is bringing hope to the hopeless in the slums there. The first time I visited these slums was around 50 years ago. (Can I really be that old?) I must tell you that the slums in Asia are as far from beautiful as anyone could imagine. You won’t see many travel magazines offering tours to any of them. No one would go. Well,… Read more

Why is doing the Lord’s work the Lord’s way so important? If the job is getting done, doesn’t that justify the means? The answer is no. Why is it so critical for us to continually take the time to wait upon Him and hear from Him, drawing close and living in His presence? Because when we do not, we are walking in sin. You see, there are two types of sin that we need to be mindful of. One is… Read more

I often say if it was not for my wife Gisela, I don’t think I would be doing what I am doing. I do not know very many individuals in my life journey who have so deliberately embraced the place of being a strength in the background as she has. She is absolutely incredible. If you come to our GFA World headquarters in the United States, or visit while she is on the field, you will hardly ever even know… Read more

I’m looking for one who will wait and watch For My beckoning hand, My eye— Who will work in My manner the work I give, And the work I give not pass by. And oh the joy that is brought to Me When one such as this I can find— A man who will do all My will, Who is set to study his Master’s mind. . . . It all began when some of our senior leaders met for… Read more

By: Danny Yohannan In the beginning of the Gospel of Mark, we read the account of Jesus being baptized before beginning His earthly ministry. Immediately afterwards, the Holy Spirit “drove Him out into the wilderness. And He was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And He was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to Him” (Mark 1:12-13). I remember hearing one of my seminary professors talk about this when I was in school. Jesus… Read more

When Jesus was choosing His disciples, He chose 12 normal, insignificant men. They were not famous people or great theologians. Most of them did not have a lot of education. He didn’t call them to follow Him because He needed them but because He wanted them to be part of what He was doing, to understand Him and participate in His nature. He wanted them to start thinking. He was training them to go and change the world after He… Read more

When I went to seminary, I learned systematic theology, survey of the Old Testament, survey of the New Testament, history, hermeneutics, eschatology, Greek, Hebrew and Philosophy. But in the midst of taking in so much knowledge, I found myself struggling to find God in my theology and in my life. My heart was dry and cold. Even being an ordained pastor of a congregation at the time, there was still no suspense or mystery about God and who He is…. Read more

The shooting on February 14 in Parkland, Florida, is heartbreaking. It is tragic to watch the decay that has happened in our world. On a much larger scale than any other generation before us, taking the lives of others has become a choice some people make when faced with difficulties. Seventeen people were killed from the shooting, including both high school students and staff, making it the third most deadly school shooting America has ever seen. Public shootings have increased… Read more
