W. Austin Gardner
Grasshoppers or Giants
“Nail the colours to the mast! That is the right thing to do, and, therefore, that is what we must do, and do it now.
What colours? The colours of Christ, the work He has given us to do—the evangelization of all the unevangelized.
Christ wants not nibblers of the possible, but grabbers of the impossible, by faith in the omnipotence, fidelity and wisdom of the Almighty Saviour Who gave the command. Is there a wall in our path?
By our God we will leap over it! Are there lions and scorpions in our way? We will trample them under our feet! Does a mountain bar our progress? Saying, ‘Be thou removed and cast into the sea,’ we will march on. Soldiers of Jesus! Never surrender. I Nail the colours to the mast!
“Such as look to Jesus become grasshoppers in their own sight, but giants in the estimation of the devil.
