Mott: power for evangelization

Monday, January 22, 2024
    Finally, brothers, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you.
    —2 Thessalonians 3:1 (NIV)
    It is possible [through prayer] for the most obscure person in a church, with a heart right toward God, to exercise as much power for the evangelization of the world, as it is for those who stand in the most prominent positions.
    ... John R. Mott (1865-1955), The Pastor and Modern Missions, New York: Student Volunteer Movement for Foreign Missions, 1904, p. 203 (see the book)
    See also 2 Thess. 3:1; Matt. 9:37-38; Luke 10:2; Eph. 6:19-20; Phil. 1:18-19; Col. 4:2-4; Heb. 13:18-19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make straight and smooth the road of those who bear good new to the world.
