"…to the praise of the glory of His grace…" Ephesians 1:6

May God Give Us Endurance in This Cause

“There’s significant wear and tear upon those called to pro-life work, jail ministry, street ministry, helping the poor, aiding substance abusers and those with sexual addictions, and fighting pornography.

If you’re going to endure, you must have a passion for Jesus that’s bigger than your passion for the cause. Otherwise, even if you don’t burn out, your cause will take the place of your Lord, thereby becoming an idol.

Lose yourself. Not in a righteous cause but in a righteous God who calls us to a variety of causes and sustains us wherever He calls us.”
