“And as you go, preach, saying, `The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give. Do not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts, or a bag for your journey, or even two coats, or sandals, or a staff…” Matthew 10:7-10
I was getting ready to post a blog entry tonight when I came across an inspiring story. Some of you might think this guy is way too radical. Or maybe you’ll raise your eyebrows, writing him off as a lunatic. But I encourage you to listen with your heart. This is one man’s calling…and his response to that calling.
May we all grow to have the same heart for this world as Vincent—living in it, but not of it—realizing that time on this side is short and obedience to our own individual calling is worth the price.
This world is not my home…
