“The missionary of Jesus will have cause to reproach himself that he served not his Lord more fully, but not that he was a missionary. O, Calvary, Calvary, when I view the blood of Jesus streaming down thy sides, I am amazed at my coldness of affection towards the Lord, and of my slothful performance of the duties which the authority of God and the love of Jesus impose upon me. Yes, O Father, Thy love in sending Jesus and O my Savior, Thy love in giving Thyself for me, and Thine, Holy Spirit, in applying the salvation of Jesus to my guilty conscience, unitedly overcome me, and constrain me to live, not to myself, but to Thee.”
~ Robert Morrison, pioneer missionary missionary to China and the first to translate the Bible into Chinese
“For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.” (2 Corinthians 5:14–15, ESV). Does the love of Christ continually constrain me? Let me constantly dwell on the infinite love of Christ for me!
