C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

A Call to Missions

Written For: Mark and Sabrina Holmes

A man comes forth to the alter of the Lord
His heart being touched by the power of the Sword
The inward calling is as sure as can be
The Spirit calls out - he replies “Send me”

As the Holy Spirit speaks a lady commits
To the calling of the Lord she gladly submits
Trusting her husband to follow the Word of God
And trusting Christ to lead them where to trod

The man of God and his virtuous help meet
Bow to the Lord and kneel at his feet
Accept the calling as a blessing from heaven
To be ambassadors for Christ to preach against leaven

In view of the calling they must leave family and friends
Even their native land to go where God sends
But they know in their hearts this is a small price to pay
To a Savior that has freely washed their sins away

To go to a lost people that thirst and hunger
To a land of dark souls that fall and slumber
With the Word of God to bring them the Light
To remove the scales off their eyes and renew their sight

To pierce through their hearts with the Sword of the Spirit
To give the call of salvation to all that will hear it
To share with them the truth of their Master and King
They have decided to trust God through all sufferings

They see the harvest through the eyes of Christ
Working through the tares to reach the wheat that is white
Praying without ceasing, through fasting and tears
Seeing God work miracles to prove that he hears

Through support of the churches and Christians they’ve met
They reach the field with their minds fully set
All of their faith must be in Christ alone
As they work in his field till he gathers them home

Whether taken in the rapture or through death they meet
They shall receive rewards for service, at the judgment seat
By being faithful to the calling and trusting in the Son
They become an example to others, in Christ, it can be done

Great Post Tim. I lovet he last two lines!

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
