There are SO MANY great verses in the Bible.   This one captures my heart and my soul.   It smack on total commitment, my passion and drive and competitive spirit, purpose and eternity.   This is what I give my life for and to!   To take the GOOD NEWS to everyone, everywhere!   I want to run to win the high prize of hearing the words of Jesus, when my life on this earth is over; “well done, my good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord.”   … and by the way, here are the people who are here because of your obedience!

To echo the great words of James Gribble, missionary to Africa.  “I shall be content with the lowest seat in heaven, if only there I may sit and see the redeemed of the Lord come in from those fields where I have been a pioneer missionary.”

Acts 20:24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.


Dan O’Deens…all for Christ and for His glory!
