While reading the obituary of Eugene Patterson, Pulitzer Prize-winning editor of the Atlanta Constitution from 1960 to 1968, I was struck by two things. First, for many years Patterson was a fearless voice for civil rights during a time when many opposed racial equality. In addition, he wrote a column every day for 8 years. That’s 2,922 newspaper columns! Day after day, year after year. Courage and consistency were key factors in the impact of his life.

Our relationship with God is built on many disciplines, prayer being one of them. What is the true meaning of prayer and why is it so easy to take prayer for granted? On today’s Just Thinking, Ravi Zacharias explores these questions as he discusses why prayer is critical in our relationship with God and what happens when you lose faith in it.

Joshua 1:1-9

Influential 18th-century American preacher Jonathan Edwards experienced frustration early in his ministry. His struggles could have given him an excuse to hang up his wig and retire his frock. Yet because of a strong sense of responsibility to his mission, he sparked the Great Awakening that eventually spread throughout the 13 colonies, across denominational lines, and even into the wild frontiers of America. His commitment was expressed in seventy resolutions he had composed before the age of 20.

A cold wind whipped through the cemetery and stung Colin's face. He tried to listen as the minister read from the Bible. I wonder if Grandpa went to heaven, he thought for the hundredth time in the last few days. On the way home, Colin finally asked the question that lay heavy on his heart: "Did Grandpa go to heaven, Dad?"

Dad looked sober. "We believe so," he replied. "You probably remember that Grandpa didn't show much interest when I talked to him about God." Colin felt empty inside when he heard this, but Dad was still talking. "But Grandpa died on his knees beside his bed," Dad added. "He was apparently talking to God."

Mom spoke in her gentle voice. "Just the day before that, I spent some extra time praying that he would receive Jesus as his Savior, and then I went to his room and told him again how he could have his sins forgiven and be saved. We can't be sure, but we believe Grandpa did put his trust in Jesus just before he died."

Colin felt a little better as he thought about that. Then with a sigh he said, "But I wish I knew for sure."

"I do, too, Colin, but we have to leave Grandpa in God's hands now," said Dad. "We did all we could do. We told Grandpa many times how he could be saved, and for years we prayed he would understand and accept God's gift. We were loving and kind to him, always hoping he would see the difference Jesus made in our lives and would want to know Him, too."

"There are some things we'll never know while we're here on earth," added Mom. "But we told Grandpa what the Bible says, and God promises that His Word will accomplish what He sends it to do. He also says His ways are higher than ours, and He does all things right."

At home, Colin went to his room and rubbed his fingers over the worn leather of a baseball mitt Grandpa had given him. "Dear Lord," he prayed, "You know I loved Grandpa and want him to be in heaven. Thank You that he knew the way. Thank You for loving him, too, and that You do everything right."

How About You?
Are you wondering if someone you love went to heaven when he or she died? It always hurts when a loved one dies, but it's especially painful when you don't know for certain that person was saved and went to heaven. If you're in that position, try not to fret. Rest in the knowledge that God's ways are right and that He will always do right. Pray for others who are unsaved. Be kind and loving, and do all you can to help them know the way to heaven.

Verse: Colossians 3:12

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

Do Christians dress differently than non-Christians? Time for a Bible quiz on clothes!

Question 1: Who was famous for wearing clothes made out of camel's hair? (Mark 1:6)

Question 2: After she died, people gathered together to show Peter all the robes and clothing she had made and given away to poor people around her. (Acts 10: 39)

Question 3: Whose father loved him so much that he bought a richly decorated robe just for him? (Genesis 37: 3)

Question 4: Who told a story about a wedding banquet at which a man who wasn't wearing wedding clothes was tied up and thrown outside the banquet into the darkness? (Matt. 22: 1-14)

How did you do? John the Baptist was famous not only for his camel-hair clothes, but also for preparing the way for Jesus. Dorcas (or Tabitha) was famous for her sewing and acts of kindness-so famous that people made Peter come to her town when she died. Not only did Peter come, he raised her from the dead. Jacob loved his son Joseph so much, he bought the fancy coat so that everyone would know who Joseph was. Jesus told the story about the wedding banquet to teach the people about the kingdom of God.

So what do clothes have to do with being a Christian? A lot! Colossians 3:12 says because we are "God's chosen people," this means that we are "holy and dearly loved." So how do we react to being chosen and loved by God? We want to look and act like God. We want to reflect God to others. How? By "clothing ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." By our "clothes," others will see God!

Discussion Guide:

There is usually a reason that a person is unhappy and mean. There is something in their past, or their present that is making them unhappy, and they take it out on the people around them. That's what happened with Johnny. He lost his pet bird and it made him an angry boy and a bitter man. He was angry with God and this caused him to be angry and impatient with other people too.

Our natural first response when bad things happen is often bitterness and anger. But it doesn't have to be that way. We can train ourselves in the Spirit so that our first response is trust in God's goodness, which enables God's character to shine through us. Then the clothes of God-the clothes of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience-will fit us nicely.

In Jesus we are dearly loved by God. That knowledge needs to penetrate us to our very bones. When it does, we are able to show others the love of God and it will be so attractive that they cannot help but be drawn to Jesus. Liz and his friends bought a new songbird for Johnny as a gesture of love. Hopefully, this loving act will result in giving Johnny a new song in his heart, the song of a child dearly loved by his Father in Heaven.
