This video by Matthew West is a great example of living out the famous words of William Carey, founder of the Baptist Missionary Society and known as the “father of modern missions.” In fact, his words ring as true today as they did almost 200 years ago.
“Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God.”
My prayer is that you will be encouraged and challenged to look beyond your comfort and apathy and safety and become the hands and feet of Jesus— no matter the costs. Our Lord would expect nothing less.
And then, from a generation ago, my generation, the same message. What about you? Are you ready to do something about the suffering in our world? And if not you, then who? And if not now, then when?
