A Story of an Accidental Death Illustrates the Law

Ethnos Canada Weekly Digest

Chronological Bible Teaching in Papua New Guinea...

They Themselves Are Sinners

The missionaries who wrote this article are teaching chronologically from “Creation to Christ” and are now at week 11 — the Law.

Up until this point, most of the people have grasped and accepted that they are descendants of Adam and because of that, they are separated from God. But the fact that they are sinners because they sin hasn't been as clear — until the Law. Obeying the law (or trying to obey the law) will never pay for sins. The One to come, the “Satan Defeater,” will pay the eternal payment for sin. And that payment is the only acceptable payment. God has provided good culturally appropriate examples to drive home some of these spiritual principles. Here’s one.
... in Colombia

The Payment Is Made ...

Years ago, we heard a story about a group of men, including two brothers. They headed out to help cut down the big trees in a patch of jungle in preparation for making a garden that belongs to another man in the village. 

The younger brother was killed by a falling tree. The older brother was, of course, sad and angry. Because this wasn't their garden, the older brother asked for payment for his younger brother's death. With the help of the village elders, a payment was settled upon – a shotgun. Once the shotgun was handed over in payment for the death, his anger subsided, and the wrong was righted in his mind. And in the future when he was tempted to get angry again over what happened to his younger brother, his wife would say, "Remember the shotgun. The shotgun was the payment. Don't be angry." And, the older brother could respond, "Yes. That's right. Yep."
... and in Mexico

… And Relationship Restored

Can you guess how we used the story to illustrate the teaching?

When the shotgun was given, the older brother's anger was appeased, and the relationship was restored with the owner of the garden. When the “Satan Defeater” gives the eternal payment, God's anger is appeased and man's relationship will again be restored with God.

Will you pray for the missionaries who are teaching from Creation to Christ? Often during these critical times, the enemy brings many distractions. Pray for stamina for the missionaries and for the listeners that many would track with and respond to the Bible teaching.

Prayer Points for This Week

  • Monday: Darcy Berglund has ministered in the Asia-Pacific Region in both translation and literacy. You have prayed for her ministries. She recently wrote, “Celebrate with us the completion of 14 Embaloh literacy booklets and a Phase One lessons teacher’s curriculum. The Embaloh church has several studies of these lessons in progress currently. Celebrate the completion of the Gerai audio Bible recording project! The team is still hanging around for the final proof-checking just in case they are needed to re-record some part of a verse. The team was amazing!” Keep Darcy in your prayers as she continues to work in literacy development. Read her update here.
  • Tuesday: “Today is hard.” Canadians Chuck and Shannon Talbot, who minister in the Philippines, voiced that phrase as they contemplated all the things that are different “today” when compared to, say, a year ago. Their children are growing up, teammates have had to leave … things are not the same. Shannon said, “When everything weighs heavy on my mind and heart, I find it easy to think that it could be worse. ... But the Lord reminded me last night ... that I need to choose joy no matter the circumstances.” Pray for the Talbots today, please. Read about how to choose joy.
     
  • Wednesday: Charity s has recently left Canada and arrived in Mexico to teach grades 1 and 2 at Binimea, the mission’s school for its MKs (missionary kids). She will be helping to mold her students to be more Christ-like and in so doing will be helping to shape the world. Pray for Charity as she prepares for the year, that she could meet the needs of the students, encourage other staff and communicate well with loved ones. Are you a teacher? Consider being a part of an educational team for MKs. Send Charity a note to let her know you are praying for her
     
  • Thursday: Matt and Karissa Long, who minister at the highland center in Papua New Guinea, are very aware that their perspective can shape their lives.  Karissa said, “I do want to grow in treasuring what’s right in front of me, but I don’t think that’s fully the answer either. So if I shouldn’t live in the past, the present or the future, then where should I live? I want to live with the eternal future in focus, not my immediate future, but eternity.” Pray for the Longs as they wait on the Lord for His direction. Read Karissa’s perspective.
     
  • Friday: “I’m a jungle grapevine being by-passed on the super speedy information highway,” said Rick Zook. He and his wife, Anji, have been living in a world that indeed has been by-passed by technological advances. But no more! Thanks to some co-workers from the IT department, they are now hooked up to satellite internet. Instead of minutes or hours to send an email, Rick said, “At the push of a button, that email is gone in five seconds. That’s amazing.” Praise the Lord with the Zooks for technology, enabling them to minister more effectively. Read about the internet blessing. Consider how God could use your gifts in IT on the Ethnos Canada team.
