May We....May God.

"As we have a high old time this Christmas, may we who know Christ hear the cry of the damned as they hurtle headlong into the Christless night without ever a chance. May we be moved with compassion as our Lord was. May we shed tears of repentance for these we have failed to bring out of darkness. Beyond the smiling scenes of Bethlehem may we see the crushing agony of Golgotha. May God give us a new vision of His will concerning the lost and our responsibility."

Wow, that's so powerful Anne, thanks for the challenge today. I need it actually as today is soul-winning. :0) Europeans are so cold and rude concerning the Gospel so it makes our job a little hard at times but all we can do is warn them, right?
