  1. Thank you SO MUCH for these words! It’s really stirred within me the desire to speak more boldly to others in my neighborhood about Christ. My husband and I have developed a heart for the homeless in our neighborhood. We live in a very poor town as it is, and the POOR in this town are desperate. Our hearts go out to them…not just to help them with financial things…like providing manual labor type jobs for them to do…but we also witness to them about the love of Christ and pray with them. But most of all? They bless us in more ways than I can say. Your words, anyway, have inspired me to keep working for the sake of Christ, not grow weary, and not become lukewarm. There is indeed a harvest of souls out there…and how will they hear the Good News unless we are willing to be the hands, feet, and mouth of Jesus? Willing to take a strong moral stand for Christ? God is so good.

  2. Thanks for taking time to write. I am so thrilled with the idea training and motivating people to do exactly what you are talking about. It is good to know my writing inspired you. God bless you and yours. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  3. When Jesus was given opportunities to throw water on the fires of controversy that His words started, He would often instead throw gasoline on them. “You are not yet 30 years old and you have seen Abraham?” “Before Abraham was I Am!”
    When we are led by the Spirit of God, as men of God, we may often cause reaction.
    Sam Jones, in the 1800s, said of the conviction his preaching caused, “When I throw a rock into a group of dogs, the one that yelps is the one that was hit.”
    Spurgeon says in Lectures to My Students, that in that day, the general public thought there were three genders: men, women, and ‘ministers’. God forbid that we behave in such a way as to occasion this response.
    Ken, you are by nature a pleasant person, so I don’t fear that you will go out of your way to offend others. But as God guides you into whatever He may be leading you into with the restlessness you now feel, realize that Our Master afflicted the comfortable while comforting the afflicted.
