One of the many things that we do when we are stateside is to visit our supporters, prayer partners and churches to talk about Kenya. On Sunday the 3rd 2013 I was invited to go to Gunter Texas to preach at Grace Bible Fellowship. I spoke on the topic of the mission of God. If you would like to listen to the message, here it is. One of the things that stood out for me as I was preparing and preaching this sermon was a quote by John Stott that I would like to share with you below:
The motto of our generation is, “Safety first.” Many young men are looking for a safe job in which they can feather their nest, secure their future, insure their lives, reduce all risk, and retire on a fat pension.
There is nothing wrong in providing for your future, but this spirit pervades our lives until life becomes soft and padded and all adventure is gone. We are so thickly wrapped in cotton wool that we can neither feel the pain of the world nor hear the Word Of God…
Jesus did not remain in the social immunity of heaven, or hide away in the safety of the skies. He entered the zone of danger, risking contamination… How can we make safety our ambition?
God bless you as you listen. I pray that your ambitions for the Lord will be bigger than life your passion for Him will never run dry and commitment to His course will be ever unwavering!
