Where Are God’s Men?

Where are

the young men and women of this generation who will hold their lives cheap and be faithful even unto death?

Where are

those who will lose their lives for Christ’s sake — flinging them away for love of Him?

Where are

those who will live dangerously and be reckless in His service?

Where are

His lovers — those who love Him and the souls of men more than their own

reputations or
comfort or
very life?

Where are

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

in college
or office,
home
or mission field,

who are willing, if need be,

to bleed,
to suffer and
to die on it?

Where are

the adventurers,
the explorers,
the buccaneers for God,

who count one human soul of far greater value than the rise or fall of an empire?

Where are

the men who are willing to pay the price of vision?

Where are

the men of prayer?

Where are

God’s men in this day of God’s power?

– Howard Guinness in Sacrifice, pages 59-60.
