"I am immortal till my work is accomplished," he wrote. "And although I see few results, future missionaries will see conversions following every sermon. May they not forget the pioneers who worked in the thick gloom with few rays to cheer, except such as flow from faith in the precious promises of God's Word." David Livingston
It is passion like this that destroyed the slave trade and only passion like this that could have. David Livingston was a man of heart when he set his mind to do something he pushed through till it was done. His life was an offering to God and he lived it as if everyday was his last. A life lived full of passion is a life that will produce great results. Paul, said it like this in Php 1:21-25, 21 For to me to be living [is] Christ, and to die gain. 22 But if [I am] to be living in the flesh, this [will mean] to me fruit from labor [or, fruitful labor]. And what will I choose [or, prefer]? I do not know. 23 But I am hard pressed by the two, having the desire to depart and to be with Christ, [which is] far better, 24 but to be remaining in the flesh is more necessary for your sake. 25 And having become convinced of this, I know that I will remain and will continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith.
We have benefited from the sacrifice of men and women like this from the past. Now the earth is crying out for the selfless sacrifice of someone, who will, with reckless abandonment push through till the end. Will it be you? It is not a mistake that you are reading this.
Oh God!!! I pray that Your Passion is restored to the church starting with me. Amen!!!!
