His Victory

A special message from God's servant (our missionary friend) Thomas Faunce


"... that utterance may be given unto me in opening my mouth,

to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel."

 (Ephesians 6:19 ASV)

Our life in Christ is an adventure, never to be taken lightly, or to be lived in the lukewarm attitude that is so prevalent today. The Christian life should be something to behold, and amazing bundle of joy and energy, filled with zeal from above. Think about it, is there any greater adventure, than the soul who abides in Christ?


We live in such times of uncertainty and fear. However, for the Christian, His life is sure and true in the redemptive power of the Lord. Should not the world see us, as such a bright shining light? Though many will hate us, even persecute us, this should never cause us to dim the flame.  How can we stay within the comfort of our fellowship halls, raising our hands in what we call praise, but seldom venture beyond our border with open arms and open hearts to those who are lost in darkness?


I remember the words of Keith Green, when he challenged the church to give their lives over to Christ: “God can’t cash out of state checks in heaven, He needs you”. I have never forgotten that, and though it may sound crude to some, I understood, even as a young Christian what he was trying to share. The truth is, God does not need anyone. We need Him. We live and breathe, and have our very life in Him. Why would we hold back living the life He has called us to? 

"You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? (Galatians 5:7)

I am writing this in Honduras. It has never been easy leaving my family, my love ones behind. However, if I cannot trust all to the Lord, can I in reality claim the title Christian?


The years are piling up on me. It seems but yesterday when I first hitchhiked to the Jungles. I wonder what would of it been like if I would of said no, left it to another to go?


Though it has been hard, many difficulties along the way, the times of loneliness, failures, and the trials and testing of our faith, my greatest regret is, I did not respond sooner. Oh, what a wonderful adventure it has been to trust Him. In spite of all my weakness, I have seen such great splendor, in the marvelous mystery of what we call the walk of faith. If I lived a thousand years on this earth in Him, I hope I would never have drawn back, never leaving it to another. The race to run is ours and ours alone.  Do not think it is not for you, He saved you, and everything God touches with His mercy, lives to reproduce in the lives of others His endless mercy.

"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, (Hebrews 12:1 NKJV)

We are no longer held captives of this world; we are prisoner of His great love, bound by the chains of grace that will never let us go. Friends, do not be the one who says no, but let the heavens here the cry of your heart: “Here am I send me.”


Truly, you may never leave the shores of the country you dwell in; nonetheless, the great adventure of faith is not the miles, but the surrendered life to Christ. He will never break His promise, no matter how the storms rage, no matter how empty your pockets, trust Him, and you will live a life of The Great Adventure.

"...in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings; by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love, by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich [in Him]; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things." (2 Corinthians 6:4-10)
