  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

A Day at a Time: Little Pitchers

By Scott Harrup
Feb. 20, 2011

“Little pitchers have big ears.”

The adage reminds us to exercise care with the words we choose around young, impressionable listeners.

And yet, those same “big ears” have amazing potential for absorbing life-changing truth. The same holds true for young, curious eyes. While protecting children from harmful messages and images, we should be all the more committed to ensuring they receive the right information — especially, the truths of God’s Word. Children who see and hear clear demonstrations of scriptural life principles are powerfully influenced throughout their adult years.

“Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them” (Deuteronomy 4:9, NIV).

That’s why I’m excited about this issue of the Evangel. We’ve partnered with OneHope this week to promote a vital truth: Young children who see and hear a clear presentation of the gospel are wonderfully receptive to God’s offer of salvation. And OneHope has developed some of the most effective means today to proclaim and show the gospel to children.

Bob and Rob Hoskins have a passion for connecting children with Jesus Christ, and their articles reveal their heart. They are amazed at the doors God has opened for OneHope to reach more than 700 million children with a clear message of salvation, and they are looking to the future with anticipation.

As you read the following ministry reports, I’m sure you’ll be encouraged by the reality of hundreds of millions of children around the world learning about Jesus’ love for them. But I hope you will also take to heart a sobering truth as old as the Great Commission itself.

Until He returns, Jesus enjoins all of us to “go into all the world” to reach every last one of the boys and girls who have yet to hear of His love.
