The other day I stumbled upon an inspiring poem shared from Deep Roots at Home that I thought I would share here:
"Lord, send us lion-hearted men
With good courageous habits
Who ne'er will run from the devil's gun
Like hares and bunny rabbits!"
"When we are in hand-to-hand conflict with the world,
the flesh, and the devil himself,
neat little Biblical confectionery is like shooting lions with a pea-shooter;
God needs a man who will let go and deliver blows right and left as hard as he can hit,
in the power of the Holy Ghost.
Nothing but forked-lightning Christians will count."
"Some want to live
within the sound
of church or chapel bell;
I want to run
a rescue shop
within a yard of hell!"
"Genuine soldiers are heroes,
'Chocolate soldiers' are shams,
The soldiers of Jesus are lions,
Not hares or timid lambs."
-by C. T. Studd
