Except for a dear friend, A. W. Tozer has been God’s most instrumental disciple maker in my life for the last two to three years. Before Tozer, there was Andrew Murray. Neither of these men (Tozer and Murray) are alive today; they have discipled me through their writings. Many other writers, both alive and dead, have played their part in God’s plan for my being made into a disciple of Jesus Christ. I am grateful to God for each of them.

God created language and gave men the idea and knowhow for paper and print; Gutenberg was God’s man. All good things come from God (James 1:17), including mass book production, word processors, and eReaders. He works all things to the good of those who love Him and are called to His purpose (Romans 8:28). God continues creating methods and mechanisms that put the truth into the hands and hearts of His children.

For me personally, God used many patient people to teach and encourage me to read. My friend taught me that giving away good books was a great way to make disciples. Consequently, God has used the written word to greatly bless me and those for whom I am responsible.

Of all the good works I have been created to walk in, writing is my favorite. Beginning with a senior class English teacher, God has used several people to encourage my writing. I am grateful for each one. On many occasions I have experienced being nothing but God’s pen. And so, I write as often as God allows.

My hope is that millions would be encouraged by the articles and books God has used me to write. My attempts at promotion, however, have been less than visibly successful. I am left to trust that He has and will get them into the hands and hearts of those He has determined, when the time is right (a great advantage to writing things down).

Those of you who have supported this ministry (in any way) must recognize your place in God’s orchestration – to get the truth into the hand and hearts of people He loves. You are part of the legacy we are leaving behind.

With that in mind, I add my thank you to His, “Well done!”

Humbly yours and forever His,

Rob

… but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. Romans 6:13

It has been a while since I communicated the many things God is doing with inLight Consulting. I share them for your encouragement; that you would continue praying for our wisdom and strength.

God continues to leverage His investment in The Map Maker. As mentioned in our last newsletter, the parable is being translated into Farsi – for use in Iran. Additionally, we are publishing the Spanish version to Amazon.com; and waiting for funding to print The Map Maker’s Guide (for leaders) in Ecuador.

The Lord has encouraged me in a number of new directions for writing: A Moment with the Map Maker (devotion); The Pastor as Workplace Leader (ChurchCentral.com blog); and, a collection of discussion questions for each of The Map Maker lessons (the beginnings of a student guide?).
