Officials in North Korea are are quite upset these days, in fact some reports are using the word "enraged". What has them so upset are plastics bags that are being dropped into the country via gas filled balloons. It is the content that is maddening to them, as inside of these bags are gospel pamphlets. Hundreds of thousands have been dropped into the country. The pamphlets say, "The Bible tells us that 'God so loved the world that He sent His only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but will have eternal life" (John 3:16). We love God because He first loved us. God loved you so much that He sent His only Son to die to save you-and He rose from the dead and is watching over you today. That is why you have found this paper."

This is all the work of an organization that must remain nameless in order to protect themselves and those they have on the inside of North Korea working for them. Praise God for these brave men and women who are using their lives to reach the lost in North Korea. Praise God for their courage and ingenuity. Praise God that there are still heroes of the faith who are willing to go and do whatever and whenever for their King Jesus. It does us all good to hear these great contemporary examples of our brothers and sisters in Christ who are on the front lines serving.

What we all should take from this is that God will do extraordinary things through ordinary people. Our job is to be available and willing, and He will give us all we need to do what it is that He is calling us to do. What is it that He might be calling you to do? Is it impossible? Is it beyond you? Is it something that could only be done by God? Perfect, as that is exactly the type of thing the Lord would have us commit to. That way when it gets done, He gets all the glory, as it will be something that only He could have accomplished. So while you pray for the people of North Korea, and I hope you do, pray for direction for what great thing God wants to accomplish through you!
