Quote For Today

On A Mission From God

William Booth Speaks:
"'Not called!' did you say? 'Not heard the call,' I think you should say. Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell, and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father's house and bid their brothers and sisters, and servants and masters not to come there. And then look Christ in the face, whose mercy you have professed to obey, and tell him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish his mercy to the world."

Jasper Speaks:
WOW! After just returning from a mission trip this quote really speaks to me. So many people are content with staying where they are when there are so many one breath away from hell. I am so thankful for those who sent our team to Raleigh. We saw 33 salvation decisions in our four days working in the inner city. It is amazing what God can do through willing teens. I am so happy that God used our group in this powerful way. When the call came, our students listened and went. I am very proud of the work God did through us there. When was the last time you went out of your comfort zone? When was the last time you went somewhere sacrificially and served God? When was the last time you led someone to Christ? The call is sure and the call is ours. Will you answer?
