Luke 10:2&3 “The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.

This daily identification with the cross brings us to a wonderful intimacy with the Lord where His grace is available to change our lives. When death has its place in our lives, a resurrection of God’s life in us follows, and it’s on this road that we are guaranteed to become more like the Lord.

They cannot bring that they don’t have we cannot preach about the gospel of the cross as a message!!
