Living With an Eternal Perspective! # 163

We are in troubling times world wide. How should the saints of God who are members of the family of God respond? I have been reading books and articles by Randy Alcorn for a long time. You will be encouraged at his response 25 years ago to a claim on the salary he received as pastor of a church in Orgeon. Henry Luke July 23, 2015

Randy Alcorn said: “In 1990 I was a pastor of a large church. I was also on the board of a crisis pregnancy center, and we’d opened our home to a pregnant teenager and helped place her child for adoption. My burden for the unborn grew, and I participated in peaceful, nonviolent rescues at abortion clinics. For this I was arrested and sent to jail. An abortion clinic won a court judgment against a group of us, and I discovered that my church was about to receive a writ of garnishment for my wages. To prevent the church from either having to pay the clinic or defy a court order, I resigned.” For more about Randy living on minimum wage and giving away all the royalties on 50 books click below:

Spend Your Day with Eternity in Mind by Adoniram Judson

A life once spent is irrevocable. It will remain to be contemplated for eternity. The same may be said of each day. When it is once past, it is gone forever. All the marks which we put upon it, will exhibit forever. Each day will not only be a witness of our conduct, but will affect our everlasting destiny. How shall we then wish to see each day marked with usefulness? It is too late to mend the days that are past. The future is in our power. Let us then each morning resolve to spend the day into eternity in such a garb as we shall wish it to wear forever. And at night, let us reflect that one more day is irrevocably gone indelibly marked.

Adoniram Judson (1788-1850) was America’s first foreign missionary. He served as a missionary to Burma for almost 40 years, through great personal suffering and sacrifice. Judson also translated the Bible into Burmese, as well as established a number of Baptist churches in Burma.
