Hope founded upon a human being, a man-made philosophy or any institution is always misplaced... because these things are unreliable and fleeting.
The best way in the world to deceive believers is to cloak a message in religious language and declare that it conveys some new insight from God.
God's plan for enlarging His kingdom is so simple - one person telling another about the Savior. Yet we're busy and full of excuses. Just remember, someone's eternal destiny is at stake. The joy you'll have when you meet that person in heaven will far exceed any discomfort you felt in sharing the gospel.
Every test, every trial, every heartache that's been significant, I can turn it over and see how God has turned it into good no matter what.
