“Make Me a Crisis Man”

post date: September 14, 2013

Wherever the message of Christ has gone it has always created controversy.
Some believe it and find hope and peace and eternal life through Christ.
Others reject it, sometimes angrily because Christ threatens them down to the core of their being.
Our Lord stands as a rebuke to every man who thinks, “I don’t need God” or “I can do it my way” or “I don’t need forgiveness.” Some people get very upset about the gospel.
We dare not keep silent in a day of spiritual controversy.
We must declare what we know to be true.
Jim Elliot once prayed, “Father, make me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road. Make me a fork, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.”
