He is a perfect example of how we should be in offering the Gospel of
Christ to a needy world. If we all had his type of enthusiasm for our
"product," we could readily reach our world for Christ in our time.

were working for the Lord rather than for people." When our
enthusiasm is for the right reason, positive results will happen.
