The world has seen too much of men and seen too many men carry a message (with signs and banners) into the world that preach "Christ of contention," even "of strife and envy" (Phil. 1) and watch them retreat back to their cozy coffee houses, pizza parlors and warm dens after their two or four-hour 'ministry' was done.
GOD HAVE MERCY!
But who shall preach Christ of "good will" and "love" (with signs and banners, if needed) and bear the wrath and hell that is beating heavy against the heathen masses in order to win some. Who will purchase a one-way ticket to God's pleasure and Go, Stand in a hard place and never retreat. The principle of the gospel is always death to the giver and life to the receiver. Christian Missionaries of old knew the Spirit of this labor!
GOD HELP US KNOW IT TODAY!
It's like the proverbial man who has the weight of the fallen beam upon his back and being crushed he reaches, strains, preaches to the near-dead souls who moments earlier was nearly crushed by that beam. Oh! That's the intercessory work of the Lord's missionaries.
GOT THE PICTURE?
Who shall be this kind of missionary?
