When Bill Borden, son of the wealthy Bordens, went out to China as a missionary, many of his friends thought he was foolish to “waste his life,” as they put it, trying to convert a few heathens to Christianity. But Bill loved Christ and he loved men! He hadn’t been out there very long before he contracted an oriental disease and died. At his bedside they found a note that he had written while he was dying. It read, “No reserve, no retreat, and no regrets.” Bill had found more happiness in his few years of sacrificial service than most people find in a lifetime.

Prayer for the day

Help me not to count the cost of serving You, Lord Jesus, but let me be completely yielded to Your leading.

    The Lord gives us blessings when we help others and when others help us. What a privilege it is to serve in the precious name of Jesus!

    Time spent helping and encouraging others is very rewarding, both here and now. Not to mention the amazing reward of being in the presence of our Holy Lord throughout eternity .

    Try and determine what your spiritual gift is and then pray for God’s guidance to help you use it for his service.

      Gerry. I wish everyone would take the time to think about and ask God what gift he or she has to give in order that they may serve God more effectively. Christians need to be more vocal than ever now since Christians and Jews alike have been threatened and many martyred for their belief in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Come Lord Jesus. Come quickly.
