Love Keeps No Record of Wrongs

We have probably all heard that God is love (1Joh 4:8), but what does that really mean? 

Some believe that God only has love, it’s only one of his attributes, and he will show it to us when we deserved it or when we have behaved good.

Some believe he only loves me and will hear my prayer when I have repented from all of the sins I have done. Some may even think: All sins I have done since I was a child and I also need to know exactly what I did.  
So they search and search their past and life to discover what they have done wrong, but that is not what God wants you to do. It is about how much you are forgiven and loved, not how much you have sinned.

There are a lot of people who are not very confident in their prayer, fellowship and communication with him, because they believe that God keeps a record of wrongs.

God Is at Work In a Challenging Time

Newsletter from Tore and his family working in
Northern Thailand among the Shan people from Myanmar

It is the end of the rainy season here in northern Thailand, and the “cold” season will soon begin, with temperatures below “20 degrees” Celsius at night.

In the last three months, we haven’t done much external activity in the ministry because of increase in Covid-19 cases in Thailand. At the beginning of August, it peaked at around 23k people who got Covid-19 per day, but now it is down to 11k, some days, so it is on the right track.

Our ministry during these three months has not stopped up because of this. We have not been able to do some things, but we have had a lot of contact with people through Messenger, Facebook and telephone, and we pray for people almost every day.

There are many who are hungry for the Good News now. We have several who wants to receive Jesus, and we have also experienced people who have been healed trough prayer, but we have also experienced some challenges especially in connection with the Covid-19 situation.

What is it All About

Have you ever asked yourself this question: What is it all about?
It may be in several contexts we can ask ourselves this question, perhaps in relation to the meaning of life, but have you ever asked this question in relation to your faith and Christian life? Maybe you’re a bit scared of this question, because it may be associated with unbelief.
Sometimes it can be healthy to ask yourself some questions, and remember God does not get nervous because of it.

Don’t Worry About Anything

Today I believe that God has something very special and something new he want to speak to you about through this scripture: Phi 4:4-7.
Do not think that you’ve heard this before and you do not need to hear it again!
I think everyone has experienced and maybe you experiencing it right now, that you have or are worried. It can be anything from money to situations that you have at work.

Whatever circumstances you are facing, you can have a peace that surpasses all the understanding.

Before I was afraid that when I had a bad day, it was because God did not protect me, or maybe it was even He who made negative things happened and he was angry at me some how. He sent a curse because I forgot to pray or read in the Bible today, or maybe I did a sin? This is not so!

You will certainly deal with a bad day better if you have a attitude of gratitude and thankfulness, and by using time with God by praising Him, and having fellowship with him in prayer

But most days that are difficult is so because we are not living in an perfect world and we have a spiritual evil enemy too.
It has nothing to do with God punishing you in one way or another.

There was one who said, “It’s not what meets you in life that will break you, but how you handle it.” If you have an attitude of gratitude and thankfulness, and believe God is really good under all circumstances, you will handle life much better!

Do We Need More of God?

I have heard many say that we need more of God or Jesus, but do we need more of Him?
Does the Bible says that we must hunger and thirst for more and that we do not have anything of Him yet.
Do we need more power, more forgiveness, more of His nature, or more blessing from God?

My answer might surprise you?

An Eager New Christian and Baptism

Newsletter from Tore and his family working in Northern Thailand among the Shan people from Myanmar

Here are some news from us in Northern Thailand.
In the West, summer is just starting, while summer in Thailand is over and the rainy season has begun. The Thai school year have started too, but due to local Covid-19 outbreaks, it is home school for our children. For the same reason, we have not been able to start our weekend school

We have nevertheless been able to do a lot in the ministry. Among other things: We saw a woman in her twenties receive Jesus in May, and this month she was baptized.
You can read more about this and other news from the ministry in this newsletter.

Be Still

Psalms 46:10
10 Be still, and know that I am God;

In this world it is easy to be stressed out. It can be all from work, circumstances, family, bad report when it comes to sickness or even when it comes to know our identity.

As a believer in a mighty God, we should not give into this stress, but the reality is that we are not so much different from people in this world. We still let this things get to us and even control us.
And you are not alone, and sometimes I ask why?
We have an answer that this world dose not have, and a hope and a power that are beyond our circumstances. So why do we worry? Often it is actually because we feel we not please God enough, so he might not hear our prayers. And that brings us back to identity too.

The truth is or soul can be still and know that He truly is God.

Great Openness and the Third Wave

Newsletter from Tore and his family working in Northern Thailand among the Shan people from Myanmar

Here in Northern Thailand, it is the hot season and summer time now and the school holidays should have soon been over, but there is a third wave of Covid-19 here, so the school start has been postponed, and we don’t know how long? This applies to both our weekend school and our three children’s schooling.

I know most people are tired of hearing about Covid-19, and we all hope that it will soon be over, so we can start planning things again, and living normally. We are also very much looking forward to that, but we are a bit behind Europe and the States when it comes to vaccination, so possible we have to wait longer?

Just before the new Covid-19 wave hit here in Thailand, we were luckily to be able to have a big and successful Easter party at our weekend school, where we experienced a great openness. There was also a woman who recently wanted to receive Jesus who was at this feast.
This newsletter will be about this, plus some news from us as a family

From Shutdown to Growth

Newsletter from Tore and his family working in Northern Thailand among the Shan people from Myanmar

About a year ago we had to shut down the weekend school and much of our
ministry because of Covid-19. Within a few months, a couple who worked
with us for almost three years also left.

We did not know how things would be when we partially started up our
ministry again in August 2020, but most of the children still came to
our weekend school even though we had closed it down for over five
months, and we had between 15-25 children until Christmas time.
 
This newsletter will be about growth and progress in our ministry, and about and the situation in Myanmar. Feel free to read to the end.

Can I Loose My Salvation?

I can actually tell you my answer right away: You can’t!

When you hear this answer and statement, you may think: You must be a Bible teacher who says that it is perfectly fine to sin and we can sin as much as we want without any consequences.

Can I tell you one thing: There is no place in the Bible where it says you can loose your salvation in the same way that you might lose your wallet, for example. Salvation is not something you suddenly loose, like doing a sin or falling into a sin.

One of the biggest fears many Christians have is if they have done the unpardonable sin and loose their salvation. It could be anything from lying, or sleeping with their girlfriend, got drunk at a party or being angry with God and saying a swear word to him.
Or they may even think they are not forgiven and rejected by God (lost their salvation) until they have pleaded forgiveness for a sin they have done, even several years back.

Do I say with this that it’s OK to sin then? NO by no means! Sin is an enemy and it will trick you and it has negative consequences for you and others, but you do not lose salvation when you sin.

But does it mean that when I became a Christian I was guaranteed a place in heaven anyway? Am I once saved, always saved?
