“Sign your burial form”
When David Sitton (barely 20 years old!) arrived in Papua New Guinea with just a suitcase, surfboard, & Bible, the veteran missionary leading his first patrol into the bush slid him a burial form to sign in case he died on that mission. Pretty alarming as you can imagine! But Sitton embraced the possibility of suffering, even all the way to death, for the sake of making Jesus known. And that’s what Paul means when he writes about “filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church.”
In part 2 of this message from Colossians 1:24-2:5 we look at how we help people meet, love, and follow Jesus.
You can read Sitton’s story in this hard-to-put-down book, Reckless Abandon. Highly recommended!
