This book issues a serious challenge to Christians today .
Excerpt from the book:
“Someone asked Vince Lombardi what the definition of football was. His response was – football is the act of 22 men on the field who are desperately in need of rest being watched by 45 000 men in the stands desperately in need of exercise. It is a good answer and one that is appropriate for many Christians. Too often we sit in the pews and let the ‘professionals’ do the work. We sit on our wallets and let the ‘givers’ do the giving. We ignore the needs of those around us and let the ‘prayer warriors’ do the interceding. We fail to heed the cries of the lost and let the ‘missionaries’ do the witnessing. We invite you to get up and leave the stands ……………… Jesus said Pray therefore to the Lord of the harvest that He will send forth labourers into his harvest. If we pray, God will send. If we send, men will hear. If men hear, some will believe. It all begins with a fervent commitment to pray. Pray as if the eternal destiny of mankind is at stake … because it is”.
