"We Will Wait!"

"We will not sit down till He comes.  And while we wait:

We will not stand idle all day.  We will not sit down on the stool of do-nothing.  We will not be just bench-warmers.  We will not go around talking about a revival meeting and stand around the wall and never bring a soul to Christ.

We will go into the homes with the Word of life. 

We will tell the poor fellow who has gone down in sin, "He will lift you from the depths of hell to the heights of glory by His grace."

We will tell the sinning woman that "Jesus wrought forgiveness, and that her name can be written with Mary Magdalene in the book of life." 

We will tell the people, "Don't put your faith in uncertain riches, but in the power of Jesus Christ to save."

We will not let weeks and weeks go by and never take the written and living Word to a lost world.

We will not hide behind our preacher or ministerial students. 

We will sing it; we will preach it, like the Apostle Paul, with tears.

We will never complain of the crisis.  We will rejoice to get under the burden with Him who bore it for us.

We will not sit down!

We will not sit down!"

~ J Frank Norris
