It was a great honor for me to give this talk at ONE ministry – ” An Evening of Praise and Worship” in Houston, Texas. With the gift of the presence of Christ comes the task to be his martyrs, His witnesses, to HIS brethren to the ends of the earth. Let us stop looking up and storing up, and begin living up to our mission to live for Christ today, learning our faith, living our faith, and sharing our faith.
