A recall of a well known and well beloved evangelistsí words from his much later years, and they were lovely.
The email recalled his speech and actions which were at the end of his ministry, the time of his departure was getting near.
I suspect they were just as monumental as at the beginning, perhaps more so.
He was taking a large amount of people to a well known area of town where he was speaking, that was known for itís shadier side of life, to take the people listening to him into that specific area to evangelize the people there for the Lord.
Iíve always loved hearing this manís sermons so very much. And it was wonderful to see his zeal in the end of his life span before his call home, not less than in the beginning. His strength in the Lord still strong.
What came to me in love was, a sense of how important all our actions are in ministering to the lost or to someone in need of hearing about or feeling the love of Jesus flow from our lives into theirs.
Jesus' love, his care. How level this felt to me. Jesusí Love for the people in our lives, so level, not necessarily with a fireworks shebang, even unassuming, yet so important as to be equaled to the walk to the area of town that this beloved evangelist took with the people.
All our actions in love are so very much important. Though quiet and even keeled sometimes, speaking to one individual perhaps, but monumental, really in bringing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus to others and bringing the Love of Jesus to the lost or to the hurting and needy.
To share with them of that very life that He has given to us. Jesusí life, about him, shared with others, in His love.
Day to day life, in love, talking to those around us, going out and seeking out the lost, walking among the people taking the Good News that is so Good, this News about the Lord Jesus, it will save the lost!
No different than a march down the main street of town!
Of monumental importance to the lost, the poor, the needy.
Not in the limelight, but still, in the all important work of the ministry.
No less important than what we would see as a major event.
Just taking the Gospel of the Lord Jesus to people through our own lives.
The smallness, still, just as wonderfully important as the large.
Taking the Gospel to the lost. Jesus, being taken, to those in need.
So much importance to share Godís love and the message of the Lord Jesus with the lost. Monumentally important in day to day life.
People sharing their lives, but truly sharing the Lord's life, His love, through the Gospel.
Sharing Jesus with others.
How our mountains go down and how level the land becomes on which our Lord walks, in our lives.
Every living soul is important that we reach out to touch as much as the beloved event of a beloved evangelist.
And we can join in in the quietness of our daily lives walking down those mainstreets to the lost, out of our own ministry among people, doing what we are called to do, sharing the Love of Jesus and the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with the lost- us, knowing it is just the same.
Praise God! Knowing that we walk the same walk as those who have gone on before us.
What rejoicing. What cause for zeal and joy and commitment. What a responsibility.
There is great joy in heaven for one sinner that repents.

Wow, this is indeed the whole truth, to share Jesus to the lost.
It is our great commission to take the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ all over the world, to share Him to the need, to show love and am so glad that you are doing so. Keep up the good work of faith.
Love sent, Justus
