Just flicking through some Blogs I came across this quote from William Booth that Estelle Blake had in one of her thought provoking moments.
"You must do it! You cannot hold back. You have enjoyed yourself in Christianity long enough. You have had pleasant feelings, pleasant songs, pleasant meetings, and pleasant prospects. There has been much of human happiness, much clapping of hands and shouting of praises - very much of heaven on earth. Now then, go to God and tell Him you are prepared as much as necessary to turn your back upon it all, and that you are willing to spend the rest of your days struggling in the midst of these perishing multitudes, whatever it may cost you. "William Booth.
Those who were at Romford SA today ....I think good old William certainly spoke to his generation and still to ours...we must! We have been very comfortable and we must expect that it won't necessarily stay like that. Others need God and we have the privilege of facilitating that.
(I feel a bit like a bus tonight...you know, no Blogs for ages, then two come along at once!!)
