I charge you in the sight of God and Christ Jesus... preach the message; be at it in season and out of season.


(2 Timothy 4:1-2)




"But my life does not matter,

if I can only finish my race

and do the service entrusted to me

by the Lord, Jesus,

of declaring the good news

of Gods favor." 


This is the sort of headlong abandon

with which you must commit yourself

to the work of the Gospel.


 Acts 20:24




Doing the work of God

among men

is sometimes like skywriting

with one's life.

One writes the message large

but one does not clearly see

what one has achieved

or whether

anyone has taken notice,

much less understood.
