Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

"Let's just go ahead and burn the churches down ourselves."

The above quote is the advice given by an International Mission Board (IMB) leader who lives in an area where the pastors of the national churches consistently refuse to lead their congregations in evangelism due to fear- according to their own admission- that Muslims would burn down their church buildings.

Of course, the IMB leader was using a bit of hyperbole, but he seriously wanted to convince the pastors that the glory of Christ and the eternal welfare of the souls in their country is of infinitely greater value than any building.

When I heard the account of this quote I thought, "Now, that's the kind of missions leader I want to work with."
