The Spiritual Realm

It is strange that the world accepts enthusiasm in every realm but the spiritual. The world appreciates and understands emotion and enthusiasm, until it becomes a religious fervor—then immediately it is suspect. When you bring a grand and glorious abandon to your dedication to the Lord Jesus Christ, you are thought by many of your neighbors to be mad, to have “gone too far” in religion.

The whole history of missionary enterprise is filled with names like William Carey, Hudson Taylor, John Paton, David Livingstone, and others, who were thought by their generations to be mad. Their dedication was beyond the understanding of those who loved the smugness and the ease of contemporary life . . . And yet, in the last analysis, who are the mad ones? Are they not the complacent, self-centered, and smug who are so selfish that they tire of their own smugness, tire of their pleasures, and even tire of themselves?

Prayer for the day

Let me rededicate my life to You, with complete abandonment, Lord Jesus.

    “’As the new heavens & the new Earth that I make will endure before me,’ declares the LORD YHWH, ‘so will your name & descendants endure. From one New Moon to another & from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come & bow down before me,’ says the LORD YHWH. ‘And, they will go out & look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, & they will be loathsome to all mankind.”
