we would love to meet with you. We will meet at

“The father had two sons. To each he gave the
command to go and work in his vineyard. The one
went, the other did not. God has given the
command and the power to every child of His to
work in His vineyard, with the world as the field.
The majority of God’s children are not working
for Him and the world is perishing.”
“The great majority of those who are counted
believers are doing nothing towards making Christ
known to their fellow men. Of the remainder, the
majority are doing so little, and that little so
ineffectively, by reason of the lack of
wholehearted devotion, that they can hardly be
said to be giving themselves to their Lord’s
service. And of the remaining portion, who have
given themselves and all they have to Christ’s
service, so many are occupied with the hospital
work of teaching the sick and the weakly in the
Church, that the strength left free for aggressive
work, and going forth to conquer the world, is
terribly reduced.
And so, with a finished
salvation, and a loving Redeemer, and a Church
set apart to carry life and blessing to men, many
millions are still perishing.”
“What can be done to awaken believers to a sense
of their holy calling, and to make them see that to
work for God, that to offer themselves as
instruments through whom God can do His work,
ought to be the one aim of their life?”
“Absolute devotion and immediate obedience to
their Lord is the essence of true salvation.”
Copied from Walking With God, The Andrew
Murray Trilogy on Sanctification.
