Tuesday’s Torch 600
August 11, 2020
This is the 600th Torch. I have spent a lot of time trying to decide what to share this week and it’s been a difficult one. I think back to my friend Tim and all of the time and effort he spent on all of the ones he shared and I think “Why”?
Why did he start it and why did he continue and why do I keep it going? There is an interaction between Christ and Simon Peter, or the Apostle Peter as he is best known that I feel is fitting. These are the words the Savior spake unto him from Luke 22: 31-32
“And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.”
We are to liken the scriptures to ourselves and as we grow our relationship with God the Father and his son Jesus Christ we feel the desire to share that knowledge. It is my personal belief that my friend Tim was trying to share the testimony and conversion that he had due to his relationship with the Lord. It is that relationship that I strive to build and share more strongly each week.
This week with the 600th Torch I would like to share with you that those verses are for each of us. Replace Simon in those verses with your own name and the statement is just as true. Brothers and Sisters, Satan would love to have you, if for no other reason than to put out your light and to hide it from the world, to silence you.
The Tuesday’s Torch has been shining for a long time now and I personally pledge to keep it going as long as I am able. But let us all take the fire that has been burning for so long now, the fire from the Torch, and use it to further strengthen our own personal torches, let us take that and shine the way for others to follow along as well. If that means sharing this weekly message then do that, if you feel impressed to share your own words with those in your circles then do that.
The Savior has prayed for each of us that our faith not fail us. He desires for each of us to be converted and then to strengthen others. There are those who perhaps only you will be able to reach. Please share your light with them. Please shine a torch in the darkness for them. You have been called to this work! Rise to the occasion and be a light to the world in these days! I share this message ever so humbly in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Tuesdays Torch has been viewed in countries all across the globe through our website and social media. We pray the words of every Torch will sink into the hearts and minds of readers. Please share Tuesdays Torch and encourage others with it. To partner with Tuesdays Torch and help expand our reach please contact us. We pray the Lord will touch our readers. All of what Christ did was so we would believe. He told us not to believe because of what He said but in what He did (John 14:11). Every Tuesday we talk about what He did and is still doing. The best thing God’s done is send His Son so we could be saved (John 3:16). If anyone is not a believer we pray they will invite the Lord into their lives by asking Him to forgive their sins and believing that He is the Son of God. Please share testimonies, feedback or encouraging words by email at: email@example.com enjoy hearing from you.

No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
