I remember one of the iconic photos of the Vietnam War era, one in which someone literally set himself on fire to protest his government’s policies. Naturally I don’t for a moment condone that. But think for a moment: If Christians had that type of dedication and willingness to sacrifice themselves for the Kingdom, what could Satan do to stop them? Threaten them? Confiscate their possessions? Jail them? Murder them? They’d be virtually unstoppable.
Lord Jesus, I want to make the maximum impact for your Kingdom. I really do. But it starts with simple things, like telling a friend or coworker about you, and being available to do whatever it takes to see you glorified. If that’s going to happen, it’s going to have to happen by your grace. Please.
