Lay any burden on me, only sustain me.
And sever any tie in my heart except the tie that binds my heart to Yours.”

QUOTE (William Carey)

May 12, 2015

william careyWe are exhorted to lay up treasure in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, nor thieves break through and steal. It is also declared that whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. These scriptures teach us that the enjoyments of the life to come, bear a near relation to that which now is; a relation similar to that of the harvest, and the seed. It is true all the reward is of mere grace, but it is nevertheless encouraging; what a treasure, what an harvest must await such characters as PAUL, and ELLIOT, and BRAINERD, and others, who have given themselves wholly to the work of the Lord. What a heaven will it be to see the many myriads of poor heathens, of Britons amongst the rest, who by their labours have been brought to the knowledge of God. Surely a crown of rejoicing like this is worth aspiring to.  Surely it is worth while to lay ourselves out with all our might, in promoting the cause, and kingdom of Christ.
~William Carey

In honor of William Carey, a British Baptist missionary known as the “father of modern missions,  who published on this day in 1792 “An Enquiry into the Obligations of Christians, to Use Means for the Conversion of the Heathens”, a pamphlet that challenged Protestants to rethink missions.
