On Pain, Prayer, Jesus and Missions
I was listening to a sermon by John Piper on missions, evangelism and the sovereignty of God given to Native American missionaries. In it he talked about John Eliot. There was a phrase that was especially impactful. First, hear Paul as he writes:
"I can do all things through [Christ] who gives me strength" - Philippians 4:13
Now compare to John Eliot:
"Prayers and pain through faith in Christ will do anything." - John Eliot (1604-1690)
