During the Normandy D-Day landings, 6 June, 1944, British war correspondent Richard Dimbleby—you have to love those British surnames; and their refusal to change or Frenchify them, àla some Americans—saw a French peasant. Though much closer to where bullets flew and shells exploded than Dimbleby, the old man worked by himself harrowing the field behind his horses. Up and back they walked, held under his control. Straight ahead he looked, to the end of his field, where he turned the team and plodded back, up and down the field, straight ahead the look. Reader’s Digest, WWII
To eliminate the fear that comes from Christian service; to keep our minds on Christ’s expectations of us, not on the cost of serving; to trust him to use our witness, whatever happens to us in the process, Scripture calls us to rivet our gaze on Jesus Hebrews 12:2. As he boldly fixed his eyes on God’s purpose, contemptuous of the dangers assailing him, we as stalwartly gaze up and ahead, to him in Heaven and ahead at his work here. Whether besieged by troubles, or working in quietness, Trust God. Believe in Christ. Don’t be afraid. Stay calm. Remain focused on the Author and Finisher of Faith. Anything less will find us vexed by the complex issues tormenting the unsaved.
