When I was just saved I was introduced to the power of example; a truly wonderful thing.
People like Jim Elliot, martyred missionary to Ecuador. What an example of heroic faith in God, and what an army of missionaries and servants of God have been profoundly influenced by the faith and sacrifice of this one man.
Another book which profoundly moved me was “The Triumph of John and Betty Stam”, the story of a martyred couple who give their all for the Lord in China.
I then realized that Lord calls many people to simply live for him consistent, God-honouring lives. I found inscribed in the insert page of my Dad’s old Bible these words:
“If He died for me, the least I can do is live for Him”
How profoundly true.
Let’s live for Him as never before. Let’s obey every truth of His Word!
“A noble life is not a blaze
Of sudden glory won,
But just an adding up of days
In which God’s will is done.”
(Poem quoted from “One day at a Time”: William MacDonald)
