The Kapsiki people of Cameroon where so eager to have a copy of the Bible in their own language that 5,000 willingly risked possible attacks from Boka Haram to get a copy of the newly published Bibles. They Kapsiki believers were excited to finally have a Bible in their own language. As the convoy carrying the Bibles passed through villages people lined the road and cheered. The day of the official presentations thousands of Kapsiki dressed in their finest clothes packed a stadium for the presentation ceremonies.
In the U.S. most of us are fortunate to have at least one if not multiple copies of the Bible. We also have apps like YouVerision for our smart phones and tablets. Do we show the same excitement for the privilege of reading God’s Word or is it just another task to check off our daily to do list? What risks are you or I willing to take for God’s word? What risks are we willing to take to share His Gospel? Are we just going to do what is easy but are we willing to do the hard stuff?
