“Dyed with Jesus’ Blood”

From Michael Haykin.

On what constitutes a call to the ministry:

“Now we need numbers in the Ministry. The plenteous, perishing harvest wails out a despairing cry for more laborers. But we need purity more than numbers; we need intelligence more than numbers; we need zeal more than numbers. Above all, we need consecrated men, men who have stood beneath the Cross, till their very souls are dyed with Jesus’ blood, and a love like his for perishing millions has been kindled within them.”

[Basil Manly, Jr. A Call to the Ministry (Greenville, South Carolina: G.E. Elford’s Job Press, 1866), 16].

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.
