It should be clear that all these theologians believe in the same gospel; that the first priority of the church is to take the gospel to all men everywhere; that man’s eternal destiny is involved; and that the task of the church is an urgent one.
Urgency for the central truth and mission of the Church is the mark of a Christian who has adopted the same passions as our Lord.
It seems that some are converted to Christ with this passion. The passion grows over time in others. Eventually all followers of Christ love what he loves and are passionate about that which He is passionate. It is simply the natural progression of the Christian.
May we all feel the urgency for Christ’s truth and mission! May we urgently seek and save those who are lost!
With much love, The Downings
