John Span

John Span has worked with his family in West Africa among an unreached 'Fulani' people group for the last ten years. His mentors have challenged him to think theologically, especially in the area of missions to Muslims and he desires to inspire others to do the same. In the last year he has been a frequent contributor to the St. Francis Magazine.

    Thanks for “rightly dividing the word of truth.” This reminder forces us to examine ourselves – our attitudes, words, and actions. It should also lead us to a greater appreciation of who God is and what He has done for us. It is this appreciation, coupled with the power of the Holy Spirit, that spurs us to openly identify ourselves with Jesus Christ, to embrace being called a “Christian” (which, according to Strong’s Concordance, means, “follower of Christ”). If Moses, by faith, gladly bore the reproach of Christ under the Old Covenant (Hebrews 11:24-26), before the Holy Spirit was given (John 7:38-39), how much more ought we who are born of the Spirit gladly bear Jesus’ reproach (Hebrews 13:13), boasting in this great transference?
