USA – Desert caravans in search of water, August 31, 2020

In the deserts where caravans are in dire need of water, a rider is sent some distance ahead; then after a little time another one follows, and still another. As soon as the first man has found water, even before he drinks, he shouts, “Come!” The next one repeats the word “Come!” So the shout is passed along until the whole wilderness echoes with the word “Come!”

Thus should it be with Christians. It is not enough for us to hear the welcome call of the Savior, “Come!”; but we must cry it out until others, far and near, hear it and come to the Lord of our salvation. No man has fulfilled his mission in the world until he has shouted in his own way, at the desk, or in the shop, or from home or the pulpit, that ringing word of the Lord, “Come, for all things are ready.”
