It was the famous missionary C.T. Studd who said, ‘One life to life it soon will pass, only what’s done for Christ will last.’
Jesus Christ came to seek and to save the lost. He has gone away for a while and has left us here for however long he gives us to continue his work of building the kingdom and investing the good deposit of the gospel so that it would bear fruit – that it would increase and multiply.
