Let me leave you with some words from the famous American colonial missionary to the Indians, David Brainerd, who died at the age of twenty-nine. His diary reveals a young man intensely committed to God. Brainerd once said to Jonathan Edwards:

"I do not go to heaven to be advanced but to give honour to God. It is no matter where I shall be stationed in heaven, whether I have a high seat or a low seat there.

My heaven is to please God and glorify Him, and give all to Him, and to be wholly devoted to His glory."

(Today in the Word, November 19, 1997)
