Out of my own experience at this point I wrote a few words years ago which have long been my constant prayer: "O God, let me die right, rather than letting me live wrong. Keep me, Lord, from ever hardening down into the state of being just another average Christian. Lord, I would rather reach a high point and turn off the light than to live a poor, useless life on a low level." -- A. W. Tozer
Acts 20:24 (NLT2) But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.
