Do Not Compromise

Out of his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you the mighty inner strengthening of his Holy Spirit.
—Ephesians 3:16 (TLB)

Billy Graham

Horace Pitkin, the son of a wealthy merchant, was converted and went to China as a missionary. He wrote to his friends in America, saying, “It will be but a short time till we know definitely whether we can serve Him better above or here.” Shortly afterward, a mob stormed the gate of the compound where Pitkin defended the women and children. He was beheaded and his head was offered at the shrine of a heathen god, while his body was thrown into a pit with the bodies of nine Chinese Christians.

Sherwood Eddy, writing about him, said, “Pitkin won more men by his death than he ever could have won by his life.” Christ needs people today who are made of martyr stuff! Dare to take a strong, uncompromising stand for Him.

Prayer for the day
Thank You, Lord, for the examples of those who have gone before us. Help me to take hold of Your unlimited strength, too.
