The below is an excerpt On Character in Action taken from The Character of the Christian which is part of the reference materials used for the STM (Missions Trip) 2015.
“When God wants to drill a man
And thrill a man
And skill a man,
When God wants to mold a man
To play the noblest part;
When He yearns with all His heart
To create so great & bold a man
That all the world shall be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways!
How He ruthlessly perfects
Whom He royally elects!
How He hammers him & hurts him,
And with mighty blows coverts him
Into trial shapes of clay which
Only God understands;
While his tortured heart is crying
And he lifts beseeching hands!
How He bends but never breaks
When his good He undertakes;
How He uses whom He chooses
And with every purpose fuses him;
By every act induces him
To try His splendour out –
God knows what He is about!”
Help shape believers lives & allow yourself to be shaped by God!
The cost? a worthwhile inconvenience of serving for 10 days
