I watched the above video nine days ago, but I have been sick with a vicious cold since then. Yet, even when I tossed and turned with fever, I meditated on this video, especially these words:
We will live as strangers and pilgrims on this earth, with sacrifice, and commitment, and tears, and fasting, and touch the lost world with our lifestyle and commitment. (K. P. Yohannan of Gospel For Asia)
Now, I understand that not everyone will be touched by Yohannan’s words, like I was, but that’s only natural. A friend used to say, “If you throw a stone into a pack of wild dogs, the only dog that really pays attention is the one the stone hits. He yelps.”
Yohannan’s stone hit me. I yelped!
What do I plan on doing?
I am going to find as many people as possible who want to live as strangers and pilgrims on this earth. I don’t care if they are white, black, brown, Catholics, Lutherans, Charismatics, Baptists, tongue talkers, or whatever. I want to be with them to fast, pray, weep, and give so that a lost world can be touched by our lifestyle and commitment.
You see, at 69 years of age, I’ve run out of time and excuses.

Praying to be willing to live as a stranger here so that Jesus can touch lives through me. And to be one of those who join you more faithfully in prayer and fasting. I struggle with it all yet. God bless you and the calling He has given you!
Thanks. I struggle, too. God bless you.
