From Temporary To Eternal : Week 2 of From Here To There

Sunday Morning, February 11, 2018 Presented by Pastor Joshua Kennon
A Letter From Adoniram Judson To John Hasseltine...

“I have now to ask, whether you can consent to part with your daughter early next spring, to see her no more in this world; whether you can consent to her departure, and her subjection to the hardships and sufferings of a missionary life; whether you can consent to her exposure to the dangers of the ocean; to the fatal influence of the southern climate of India; to every kind of want and distress; to degradation, insult, persecution, and perhaps a violent death. Can you consent to all this, for the sake of him who left his heavenly home, and died for her and for you; for the sake of perishing, immortal souls; for the sake of Zion, and the glory of God? Can you consent to all this, in hope of soon meeting your daughter in the world of glory, with the crown of righteousness, brightened with the acclamations of praise which shall redound to her Saviour from heathens saved, through her means, from eternal woe and despair.”
A Letter From Anne Hasseltine (Judson) To Her Friend, Lydia...

“I feel willing and expect, if nothing in providence prevents, to spend my days in this world in heathen lands. Yes, Lydia, I have about come to the determination to give up all my comforts and enjoyments here, sacrifice my affection to relatives and friends, and go where God, in his providence, shall see fit to place me. My determinations are not hasty, or formed without viewing the dangers, trials, and hardships attendant on a missionary life.”
Living Life With Eternity In Mind Is A Good Investment
1. Be Rich In Good Deeds (Do Good To Others)
2. Be Generous (Sacrificial Giving)
3. Willing To Share (Be Open Handed With Life)
The Man Was A Fool Because He Didn't Think Eternal. He Thought Long-Term... Just Not Long Enough...
Adoniram Judson Spent 40 Years In Burma. During That Time, He And His Wives Translated The Entire Bible Into Burmese. He Outlived 7 Of His Children... But By The Time He Died, Because Of His Ministry, There Were Approximately 8,000 New Children Of God In Burma. Today, There Are Over 3,700 Churches In Burma That Trace Their Lineage To The Judsons.
