Pray for God’s Blessing!

Passage: Psalm 67

"Why did Paul desire to bring the nations to the obedience of faith? It was for the sake of the glory and honour of Christ's name ... If ... God desires every knee to bow to Jesus and every tongue to confess him, so should we. We should be 'jealous' (as Scripture sometimes puts it) for honour of his name -- troubled when it remains unknown, hurt when it is ignored, indignant when it is blasphemed, and all the time anxious and determined that it shall be given the honour and glory which are due it. The highest of all missionary motives is neither obedience to the Great Commission (important as that is), nor love for sinners who are alienated and perishing (strong as that incentive is, especially when we contemplate the wrath of God, verse 18), but rather zeal -- burning and passionate zeal -- for the glory of Jesus Christ."  -John Stott
