I read this great challenge in Voice of the Martyrs’ newsletter (2018 photo issue).
Among my heroes are two Moravian missionaries who 300 years ago attempted to sell themselves into slavery because it was the only way they could reach the lost in a remote slave colony. They were willing to sacrifice their freedom in order to reach the ends of the earth, considering it an honor to be able to serve Christ in this way. I think often of how they described Christ as being “worthy” of their sacrifice. Have we internalized Christ’s great worth? Do we consider it an honor to have the opportunity to sacrificially serve Him?
So convicting. I. can. not. imagine. selling myself into slavery like that, not even for Christ.
