I would like to share with you a blog entry from a missionary friend of my sister.
Down but not out.....
To be honest, when I first heard Christie's tale, I was convicted. Here is a woman who was traveling 25 miles on a motorcycle in the heat of Paraguay so that she could learn a language that would enable her to be a witness to more people. When was the last time I walked to my neighbor's house to be a witness? When was the last time I spoke to someone about Christ while at the grocery store? We have it so easy in America. We could be such great witnesses. Christie's story reminded me that I should be doing more. The Bible commands us to be a living sacrifice, but from what I can see, not many of us are sacrificing much. May Christie's story light a fire within us and compel us to strive harder to reach the lost.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. - Romans 12:1
