President's Perspective: The Call to the Abandonment of Love

The Call to the Abandonment of Love

By Hubert Harriman, President
July-September 2012

John Wesley said, “Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen, such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven upon earth.”

If the world will sometimes give themselves with such abandonment to certain causes, God’s people ought to be at the front of the line in complete abandonment for greater causes. We shouldn’t have to coax believers into missions. They ought to pounce on divine opportunities like a dog on a bone. Why don’t we?


Does the love of Christ dominate you? As you read through The Call, will you answer the call to the abandonment of love? To that end I pray! If we will, we can, as Wesley said, “shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven upon earth.”


ACT: Have you become too self-seeking? This is the time to make it right. Spend time in prayer with the Father. Return those things that are rightfully His and seek the call to the abandonment of love.
