    The Amy Carmichael Story


    The Torchlighters: Heroes of the Faith DVD series

    As Amy Carmichael travels about southern India at the turn of the twentieth century, her deepest desire is to share Jesus’ love with the local people. She has traded her Irish clothing for a cheap Indian sari, gathered together a small group of women, and laid aside all plans for marriage and children. As one of her Indian companions points out, children would “tie the feet,” taking her attention away from her goal of sharing Christ with the people of India.
    Upon adopting the name “The Starry Cluster,” the little group eagerly sets out with great hope of fulfilling Daniel 12:3: “Those that lead many to righteousness shall shine like the stars forever.” However, results are few as the Indian caste system, which does not allow people of different social levels to interact, and the society’s lesser appreciation of women, make it difficult to connect with the people. Even so, some of the women and a few children are drawn to their Christian message.
    Meanwhile, seven-year-old Preena has been given to the Indian temple by her impoverished family in an attempt to gain the favor of the Hindu gods. Though the temple women try to break her spirit through hard work and confinement, Preena holds on to the hope of escape. During her first daring getaway, Preena encounters Amy Carmichael in the market place and quickly recognizes something different in this kind woman in the light blue sari. As the temple leaders snatch her away, Preena cries out for help even as she grabs hold of the cross swinging from Amy’s neck.
    Back at the temple, Preena pays dearly for running away and is warned to stay away from Amy Carmichael, known in the village as the “soul-stealing woman.” Yet, Preena cannot forget the kindness and love she saw in Amy — a love she describes as “all light.” Driven by that love and led by a God she has barely heard about, Preena attempts another escape in order to find Amy.
    Through a miraculous work of God, Amy returns to her village from a missionary journey just as Preena escapes the temple for a second time, and they soon find each other. Preena becomes the first of many children who eventually join the Starry Cluster. The work Amy began among the women and children of India continues to this day through the Dohnavur Fellowship.

    Where will You be Five Minutes After You Die?

    Full text of gospel tract:

    THIS is one of the most serious questions you will ever have to face. No one can deny the fact of death. It was Ponce de Leon who came to Florida in 1569 searching for a fountain of water which would bring perpetual youth to all who drank of it. But no such fountain has ever been found. Ponce de Leon died just as everyone else must die. Since death is so certain, one’s main concern should be to find out where one shall be after death.
    Jesus told the story of a certain man. He said, “There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: and there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores… And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; and in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments” Luke 16:19-23.
    So here is a story which tells of two men, one of whom died, was buried, and in hell found himself in torments. This is not fiction, it is from God’s Word, the Holy Scriptures. God must punish sinners, and there is not one upon the earth who has not committed sin. “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23. But our Creator, the loving God, has no delight in the death of the wicked. Five minutes after you die you do not have to be in hell.
    There is a way of salvation. There is a way of forgiveness and a way of finding peace with God. Are you interested in this way? Do you want to be saved? Then follow carefully this simple outline of God’s plan of salvation.
    GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION
    1. You need to be saved. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23 “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way” Isaiah 53:6
    2. You cannot save yourself, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us” Titus 3:5 “ For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast” Ephesians 2:8,9
    3. God has provided a way for your salvation. “Christ died for our sins” I Corinthians 15:3 “Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree” I Peter 2:24 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16
    4. You can be saved today. “Now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” II Corinthians 6:2
    5. Your part is: “Repent ye, and believe the Gospel” Mark I:15 The Gospel is “that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day” I Corinthians 15:3,4 “As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name” John 1:12 “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” Romans 10:9

    Friend, do you see the wonderful truths that God has unfolded through His Word? If so, will you receive Christ as your Lord and Saviour right now? Just believe in your heart that He died for you, turn to Him for mercy, and believe that He meant what He said… that He would save you the moment you trusted Him. Will you do this?

    Repentance - Your First Step to Peace with God

    Full text of gospel tract:

    I have never met a man who did not want to be totally free. Have you? There is something about man that always causes him to fall short of experiencing the happiness and fulfilment he feels should be his. A friend of mine illustrated this point as he sat in my office showing and expressing utter dejection. He had just experienced his third divorce and with a sense of helplessness he stated, “Somewhere it is written in stone that I will never be happy, nothing ever works out for me.” I assured him, to no avail, that his life could be exciting and full, that God could set him free and give him a life worth living. My friend was so down that even as I shared the possibility that there was hope for his future, his depression noticeably deepened. Another strange thing occurred. Each time God was mentioned, he would become uncomfortable and change the subject. Yet it appeared he really wanted help. He wanted to be free of the endless cycle of bondage he found himself in, but he was not willing to turn to God to find this freedom. How strange to have such a marvelous gift offered, to want it so badly, yet reject it so strongly. Could it be that my friend understood something about God’s message that is so often missed, i.e. the need to repent.
    He felt very uncomfortable about his sin and what God thought about him. He also did not understand that it was possible to have a brand-new start in life with God.
    Dear reader, it is possible for you to be forgiven by God and experience a new life with Him. The Bible says, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1. It is exciting to know that Jesus Christ stated, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10.
    How do we enter into this new life? By getting right with God. This answer may be found in Acts 3:19, “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out.’’ For anyone who has repented and believed in Christ and what He did on the Cross of Calvary, can have everlasting life with God. Notice the following texts that clearly bring to our attention the matter of repentance. “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent.” Acts 17:30. Did you catch the word “all”? That includes both you and I. This same command is repeated in II Peter 3:9, where God states He is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” Please understand that you are saved by faith in what Christ has already done for you. But there can be no saving faith without true repentance.
    What then is repentance? It literally means to change one's mind or purpose. In this case, it refers to you and your sinful relationship before God. You must be prepared to acknowledge God’s view of yourself as stated in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
    Repentance has three essential elements that you need to be aware of. One, a genuine sorrow towards God because of the sins you have committed against Him. King David prayed to God and stated, “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Thy loving-kindness: according unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in Thy sight.’’ Psalm 51:1-4. Have you grieved over your sin knowing that God is watching you?
    Two, there must be an inward repugnance to sin, followed by the actual willingness to forsake it. Paul in Acts 26:20 stressed this need for us to see our sin as it really is, and also our need to express our willingness to leave our sin, when he stated, “That they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.’’ In other words, the willingness to repent must allow God to bring about a change through the conversion experience.
    Three, there must be a humble self-surrender to God’s will and service. You must be willing to say to God, “Oh God, I am going the wrong way without You. I want to turn to You and go Your way with You. Take my life and do with it what You want.” The Apostle Paul in Acts 9:6 stated, “Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?” It is important to understand that repentance is not a condition of salvation. For salvation is free in Christ, but repentance is a condition through which we are able to receive salvation as a free gift. In other words, there can be no salvation if one is not willing to repent so that God can save him.
    What must you do to have peace with God? The Holy Spirit must bring you to a place of conviction where you see yourself as God sees you. “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear.” Isaiah 59:1-2.
    You are separated from God because you are a sinful being. As you are now, you can never be accepted by God. But there is hope, for God has said He is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9. Then the Holy Spirit also causes you to understand the enormous price God paid through the death of His Son on the cross. For it was there Christ took your rightly deserved punishment, that you might be forgiven. “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.” I Peter 3:18.
    Dear friend, if you would know the freedom to live, love and laugh, you must be willing to repent and let God give you a brand-new life. Forgiveness, and a new life can be yours. Will you turn to God right now and seek His forgiveness? Then inviting Christ into your life, will you let Him have His way with you? Please do it today.

    Repentance - What is it All About?

    Full text of gospel tract:

    A beautiful example of godly repentance is shown in Luke 7:36-50, where the woman “began to wash His (the Lord Jesus) feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed His feet, and annointed them,” after which the Lord said, “Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much.”
    Every touch of cleansing a soul ever receives from God is preceded by repentance, for no one is even going to desire to be cleansed of his sin, if he has not repented with “godly sorrow.” Therefore. “humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.” James 4:10. Job said, “I abhor myself, and repent.” Job 42:6. The person who repents as David did, who said to the Lord, ‘’Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in Thy sight,” will loathe himself, and have a deep hatred for his sin, longing to be free of it, as did David, who said, “Create in me a clean heart, O God. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. A broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.” Psalm 51:4,10,7,17.
    There are two kinds of repentance, a ‘’godly sorrow,’’ and a worldly sorrow, “for godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation – but the sorrow of the world worketh death.” II Corinthians 7:10. The sorrow of the world is a selfish sorrow for the suffering consequences of sin, “for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7, but “godly sorrow” is a sorrow for sinning against the Holy God who gave us life, and sent His Beloved Son to “bare our sins in His own body on the tree.” I Peter 2:24. “The goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance.” Romans 2:4, and godly repentance will produce faith to believe God when He says, “the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.” I John 1:7. This is not a mental belief, for “the devils also believe, and tremble.” James 2:19. It is a change of heart, “for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness.” Romans 10:10.
    Christ said, “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” Luke 13:3. God says, “…by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God…” Ephesians 2:8. We are saved by grace, the unmerited, undeserved favor of God, which He extends to the repentant sinner, only, when he obeys Christ’s command, “Repent ye, and believe the Gospel.” Mark 1:15. The martyr, Dietrich Bonhoffer, said, “The trouble with the church is that it is merchandising a cheap kind of grace, forgiveness without repentance.” God will not do any different than He commands us, saying, “Take heed to yourselves: if thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.” Luke 17:3.
    Christ commanded “that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His Name among all nations,” Luke 24:47, but in many churches, repentance or cleansing for sin is seldom preached today. The true meaning of repentance is being changed for a way less reproachful and humbling, but God “resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.” I Peter 5:5. Too many sinners are sweetly exhorted to “accept Jesus as their Saviour,” or to “only believe.” This new way of “take it by faith,” without repentance, is filling the churches with unregenerated souls, who have nothing over which to rejoice. They are encouraged to make a profession of faith, when they have no faith, and in so doing, they lie to God and to man, becoming hypocrites who increase their damnation. For the greatest sin is to sin under Christ’s Name. Christ said, ‘’Woe unto you – hypocrites – how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” Matthew 23:29,33. “Let everyone that nameth the Name of Christ, depart from iniquity.’’ II Timothy 2:19. In these “last days,” sinners need to be warned of the wrath of God and eternal hell, “where their worm (soul) dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” Mark 9:44. We simply cannot only proclaim peace and comfort to unrepentant rebels, who have never yet been “reconciled to God,” II Corinthians 5:20, and offer “the water of life” to unconvicted men who have no thirst. Only the true “Gospel of Christ… is the power of God unto salvation.” Romans 1:16.
    The Lord Jesus began His ministry by preaching, “Repent: for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand,” Matthew 4:17, and the Apostles obeyed His command to preach repentance and remission of sin in His Name. On the day of Pentecost, St. Peter “preached the Word,” and sinners were “pricked in their heart, and said – what must we do to be saved?” to which he replied, “Repent, and be baptized… in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins…” Acts 2:37,38. St. Paul testified to all, “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ,” Acts 20:21, warning in Galatians 1:8, “Though we, or an angel from Heaven, preach any other Gospel unto you than that which we have preached… let him be accursed.”
    The true Gospel produces conviction, repentance, and faith, as specific sins were made manifest by the light of the Apostles preaching, warning sinners that the works of the flesh are – “adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lascivious-ness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like” and declared that “they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Galations 5:19-21. To all who “walked… according to the prince of the power of the air, (Satan), the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience,” Ephesians 2:2, the Good News of the Gospel is that there is forgiveness, cleansing, and deliverance for the sin-sick soul who is tired of his sin, and cries out, “Create in me a clean heart, O God… Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.” Psalm 51:10,2, for “the Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.” Psalm 34:18.

    The Debt Paid

    Full text of gospel tract:
    I once asked a man, “Do you think any bad people will be saved?”
    “No; I think not,” was his reply.
    “Then I have no chance,” I said. “Have you any?”
    “Oh yes, I am not a bad man.” “But are you not a sinner?” “Oh yes,” said he, “We’re all sinners.”
    I then told him that in God’s sight, all sinners are bad people, for the Word of God declares that “there is none that doeth good, no, not one,” Romans 3:12; and also that in the whole Bible there is no promise of salvation through Christ to any but to the bad. Good people would not want Christ to save them since they think they don’t need to be saved. I urged him to take his place as a sinner, and accept pardon through the death of Christ on his behalf, seeing that “Christ died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6.
    That night, about 10:30, he came to the house where I was staying, and told me he was so troubled because of his sins that he could not go to bed. “I went home,” he said, “with those words ‘salvation for bad people,’ ringing in my ears. And now, I have come to ask you, ‘What must I do to be saved?”
    “Have you found out that you are a sinner?” I said.
    “I am a great sinner,” he replied.
    “And where are your sins?”
    “All on myself.”
    “Then,” I said, “you are like one who has a heavy debt upon him, weighed down by the feeling that he cannot pay it.”
    “That’s just what I am,” he replied.
    “If you owed a large sum of money, and could not pay it, you would be afraid to go out, lest you should meet the sheriff; and if I went to the person to whom you owed it, and paid it for you, you would still be afraid to show your face, unless you knew that I had done so. But if I came and told you that I had settled the debt, you could walk out boldly, and challenge sheriff or creditor to touch you.”
    “They could not lay a hand on me.”
    “Why not?” I asked.
    “Because the money was paid.”
    “Yes, but you did not pay it.”
    “That doesn’t matter — the money was paid and they couldn’t touch me.”
    “Well,’’ I continued, “If you knew that God was satisfied about your sins, you wouldn’t be afraid to meet Him, would you?”
    “No.”
    “God is satisfied in regard to your sins. We had nothing with which to pay, but Christ paid our debt with the price of His own precious blood; and He says: ‘His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree.’ I Peter 2:24. We are redeemed ‘with the precious blood of Christ.’ I Peter 1:19. ‘The Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.’ Isaiah 53:6.’ So you see, God sent the Lord Jesus to pay the debt which we owed; and God is satisfied with Christ’s payment. Are you?’’
    “I am,” he said, “and I come in repentance and faith to Christ, thanking God for it.”
    “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16. “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” I John 4:10. “God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8. “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6. “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many.” Therefore He saith, “Their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” Hebrews 9:28; 10:17. “He that… believeth… shall not come into condemnation.’’ John 5:24. “The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.’’ I John 1:7.

    A Good Father


    Full text of tract:
    Billy Graham once said, “A good father is one of the most unsung, upraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.” But what does it mean to be a good father? The Bible contains many precious insights on the subject. Here are a few:

    A Good Father…

    Is Known by the Lord: “I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord” (Genesis 18:19).
    Serves the Lord: “If it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).
    Leads: “The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him” (Proverbs 20:7).
    Nurtures: “Fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4).
    Protects: “In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and His children shall have a place of refuge” (Proverbs 14:26).
    Provides: “What man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him?” (Matthew 7:9-11)
    Comforts: “Ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children” (1 Thessalonians 2:11).
    Understands: “As a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him” (Psalm 103:13).
    Teaches: “These words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deuteronomy 6:6,7).
    Prepares: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).
    Disciplines: “My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the Lord loveth He correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth” (Proverbs 3:11,12).
    Forgives: “He arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: and bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: for this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry” (Luke 15:20-24).
    Rejoices: “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth” (3 John 1:4).
    Is Blessed: “Children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them” (Psalm 127:3-5).
