What honour to hold commission under the Great Commissioner – the Son of God! Who would think that such honour would ever lack candidates – would go begging!

Work is only thought to be self-sacrifice when it is for Jesus Christ.  We only speak of “self-sacrifice” when it is to save souls.  But when men penetrate to the interior of Africa to collect butterflies and hunt beetles, then it is called “pleasure.”

- REV. MARK GUY PEARCE

Lord give me a vision, a vision of Thee,
Lest people should perish who live around me.
A vision, I pray Thee, a vision of love,
To win those around me for Heaven above.

Would that God would make hell so real to us that we cannot rest; heaven so real that we must have men there; Christ so teal that our supreme motive and aim must ever be to make the Man of Sorrows the Man of Joy, through the conversion of many, concerning whom He prayed, “Father, I long that those whom Thou hast given me be with me where I am.”

*   *   *   *   *

The restless millions wait the light,
Whose dawning maketh all things new;
Christ also waits, but men are slow and late.
Have we done what we could?
Have I?
Have you?

Calvary writes the death-warrant of selfish ease and indulgence.
