Kimyal tribe receives the Word of God

As a church, we are going through a season of challenge around the topic of discipleship.  Discipleship is essentially growing closer in our walk with Christ.  This past Sunday, our focus was on the Word of God.  We found that the scriptures were essential to the early church.  The 12 disciples gave their “attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.” (Acts 6:4)

During the service we showed a portion of the video below.  It is a documentary about the Kimyal Tribe in Indonesia receiving the written Word of God in their language for the very first time.  It is one of the most powerful 10 minute videos I have ever seen.  Watching their joy for the Lord and for His Word should be a challenge for us.  Do we cherish the Word of God?  Or do we take the overabundance of Bibles in our homes for granted?
