The Little Tent

January 16, 2014

Read: Colossians 1:1-12; 4:12

For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell. —Colossians 1:19
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 39-40; Matthew 11

During evangelist Billy Graham’s historic 1949 Los Angeles campaign, the big tent that held over 6,000 people was filled to overflowing every night for 8 weeks. Close by was a smaller tent set aside for counseling and prayer. Cliff Barrows, longtime music director and close friend and associate of Graham, has often said that the real work of the gospel took place in “the little tent,” where people gathered on their knees to pray before and during every evangelistic service. A local Los Angeles woman, Pearl Goode, was the heart of those prayer meetings and many that followed.

In the apostle Paul’s letter to the followers of Christ in Colosse, he assured them that he and his colleagues were praying always for them (Col. 1:3,9). In closing he mentioned Epaphras, a founder of the Colossian church, who is “always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God” (4:12).

Some people are given the high visibility task of preaching the gospel in “the big tent.” But God has extended to us all, just as He did to Epaphras and Pearl Goode, the great privilege of kneeling in “the little tent” and bringing others before the throne of God.

They labor well who intercede
For others with a pressing need;
It’s on their knees they often work
And from its rigor will not shirk. —D. DeHaan
Prayer is not preparation for the work, it is the work. —Oswald Chambers

Hello from Idaho. God Bless Our Troops!! Support Our Troops. Pray For Our Troops.

***HUGS*** We had some snow last week.We now have 55 inches total. Got hit with 13 inches one night and 10 inches the days before. We are at normal level now. This week it will be nice. 8 degrees at night and 30 during the day.

Been feeding flying squirrels in the feeder during the night time. Fredd and one got eye to eye this morning at 1am.

The squirrel is fine and Fredd was upset he couldn’t play with it.

Slow commute this morning, fast on the way home. Yesterday's commutes were horrendous. After my 6:15 Dr's appointment I was on the road until 9:00 before I hit the office.

Oh, it's because they don't say that in the US. It's always "Happy Holidays" with them. But here in Australia the telly always closes shows with "Merry Christmas" they also say "Happy Easter" as well.

As for the lever thing. Once on a check flight I said "Hey, what's this lever do?" and I pulled it (knowing full well what it did - increased the degree of flaps) just to see what my check pilot would do or say. We had a time we did. LOL

Appears to be a weapons troop loading an ammo belt on a gun inside of a gunship aircraft.

Just a guess though.

So glad your your snow is gone Mayor!

We are in the mid to upper 70’s already this week but chilly in the 40’s in the mornings.

I can handle this just fine! LOL

I would move back to Tucson in a heart beat. The older I get the more I dislike winter.
