Many of us “Old Timers” are troubled by what we see within our Christian Groups. Just the other day, I received an email from a much younger person, informing me they were interested in serving Jesus on some mission field.
The list of requirements filled three sheets of paper. I would imagine there will no takers, at least I hope not!
Old School and God’s Word teaches when God calls, we answer. God then fills in the blanks; we accept and get started.
When John G Paton, the Scottish missionary, answered the call to the Cannibals of New Hebrides, now called Vanuatu, in the South Pacific, he trusted God and won many to Christ. He knew in his heart the people were ready for the gospel.
Here’s Brother Paton’s statement:
“Those and only those can expect to be taught of God, who are ready and willing to do as they are taught.” John G. Paton
