Regarding his work among the Indians, Richard Williams said, “I have felt – come life, come death – God’s will would be my choice. Should anything prevent my ever adding to this, let all my beloved ones at home rest assured that I am happy beyond expression, and would not have changed situations with any man living. Let them be assured…that the hope of glory, the hope laid up for me in heaven, filled my whole heart with joy and gladness, and that for me to live is Christ, to die is gain: the I can say, “I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.” (Philippians 1:23).”
Richard Williams had caught the vision by comparing his life with all its hardships to what results in eternal reward. What measurement are you using to evaluate your life?
