A Comfortable Home

We thought our house would never sell. The realtor told us it was next to impossible. It was in the middle of nowhere on the top of a mountain. We loved that house, but we earnestly prayed that God would work a miracle and sell it so we could share His love with the Palawano people. It sold in a month. God is too good for words!

“The redeemed will meet and recognize those whose attention they have directed to the uplifted Saviour. What blessed converse they will have with these souls! ‘I was a sinner,’ it will be said, ‘without God and without hope in the world; and you came to me, and drew my attention to the precious Saviour as my only hope. And I believed in Him. I repented of my sins, and was made to sit together with His saints in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.’ Others will say: ‘I was a heathen in heathen lands. You left your friends and comfortable home, and came to teach me how to find Jesus, and believe in Him as the only true God. I demolished my idols, and worshiped God, and now I see Him face to face. I am saved, eternally saved, ever to behold Him whom I love. I then saw Him only with the eye of faith, but now I see Him as He is. I can now express my gratitude for His redeeming mercy to Him who loved me, and washed me from my sins in His own blood’” (Gospel Workers, p. 518).

Folks, this is what being a missionary is all about. This is the driving force behind our desire to sacrifice all for Jesus. There is no time now for a comfortable home. We will have to wait until heaven for that. Now is the time to sacrifice all we have and who we are for the Master. What will you sacrifice today?
