the young men and women of this generation who will hold their lives cheap and be faithful even unto death?
those who will lose their lives for Christ’s sake — flinging them away for love of Him?
those who will live dangerously and be reckless in His service?
His lovers — those who love Him and the souls of men more than their own
the men who say “no” to self,
who take up Christ’s cross to bear it after Him,
who are willing to be nailed to it
or mission field,
who are willing, if need be,
to suffer and
to die on it?
the buccaneers for God,
who count one human soul of far greater value than the rise or fall of an empire?
the men who are willing to pay the price of vision?
the men of prayer?
God’s men in this day of God’s power?
