David Howden, a former Faith Mission Bible College Principal, used to say, “There is no unemployment in the King’s service.”
Towards the end of his life, his face radiant, he told a gathering, “Oh, if I had my life over again I’d still be a Pilgrim* in the Lord’s work!”
He had discovered the joy of serving Jesus. None of us need be “out of service” while we come into contact with those who still need to hear the gospel message.
* In those days, workers in The Faith Mission were called Pilgrims, emphasising the importance of the spiritual life over the material.This article was published by The Faith Mission, Edinburgh, in FIRST! magazine September/October 2009
