Reflections No. 2: Soldiers of the Cross
An Englishman named Augustine Birrell tells of traveling through what was at that time, “the wild remote parts of Lancashire.” According to his words, the people had a reputation for being very belligerent and heavy drinkers, etc. But when Birrell visited them, he found them to be temperate, kind, and hospitable. So he asked a local miner, “How did this great change happen?” Tipping his cap solemnly as a token of respect, the worker replied, “There came a man amongst us once, and his name was John Wesley!” The testimony of one man had changed an entire community.
“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us” (2 Corinthians 4:6, 7).
This book is about the lives and works of five men who let their light shine in their respective fields of labor for the Master.
Many can say that their lives have been enriched because there came among them men named J.R. Kinser, R.O. Covey, T.J. Lowe, John L. Sullivan, and J.P. Sullivan.
This book, Reflections No. 2: Soldiers of the Cross, is about those men.
