In Releasing Your Church’s Potential, Robert Logan and Tom Clegg wrote, “I believe that the enemy divides all people into two categories: those he can ignore and those he has to fight. I want to be one of those he has to fight.” He went on to quote a World War II bomber pilot: “If you’re taking flak, you’re over the target.”
The Apostle Paul said it this way to young Timothy: “Anyone who wants to live all out for Christ is in for a lot of trouble; there’s no getting around it.” (2 Timothy 3:12)
Awhile back I saw these song lyrics written on a dry erase board outside our green room at church. (The green room is where the musicians and vocalists hang out in between services.)
Some people want to live within the sound of chapel bells, but I want to run a mission a yard from the gates of hell! The lyrics are from an old song called Run To The Battle by Steve Camp.
For me personally, send me to the front lines!
