As the world deals with the outbreak of the Corona Virus, there are many unanswered questions about what is safe and how much anyone is at risk. Life and death hang in the balance for many.
This got me thinking about how much would we risk as a Christian to make sure that someone hears the gospel of saving grace. Eternal life and eternal death hang in the balance. C. T. Studd answered this question when he said:
“Some wish to live within the sound of Church or Chapel bell; I want to run a Rescue Shop within a yard of hell.”
If you think that statement is extreme, consider Paul’s statement; “I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh” (Romans 9:2–3).
Either statement comes from men who lived next to the heart of God and felt the urgent necessity that the saving message of Jesus get to those who have not heard. We also can take the risk, if we like them, spend time in fellowship with the Author of Salvation.
