I heard a story from a preacher named Paris Reidhead in an excellent sermon he preached called Ten Shekels and a Shirt. Reidhead tells about two young Moravian Christians who heard about an atheist British man who owned an island on which he owned 2,000- 3,000 slaves. The man decided that no preacher or clergyman would ever come onto his island because to him religion was nonsense. These two young Moravian men sold themselves to the British planter and used the money for transportation to his island so that they might have a chance to preach the gospel to those slaves. The slavery into which they sold themselves was not temporary; it was permanent. Naturally the men’s families wept as the men prepared to leave, knowing they would never meet again. As the ship set sail one of the young men shouted out the last words that were ever heard from him: “May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering.”
