We Are Made Alive In Christ

1 Corinthians 15:20-34

Before they set foot in Sierra Leone on November 16, 1828, William Munro and William Peck, Wesleyan Methodist missionaries from England, received news that their predecessor had just died. With hearts saddened, they moved forward to engage their call. What they found was a thriving community of believers alive in faith. In the service of welcome the brothers and sisters prayed, “Lord, bless we, make we heart soft, make we love Jesus more, keep we from sin.”*

“The white man’s grave” is how Sierra Leone was known in the nineteenth century, yet early missionaries kept ‘stepping up’ knowing the odds. Through their labors, in the midst of death brought on by Adam’s sin, God kept raising people to the new life made possible by the second Adam!

Before a year had passed, missionaries Peck and Munro also laid down their lives in the cause. Yet, out of their investment numerous others followed the host who had already found eternal life, the Christ-life!

    The Church and its mission is alive and growing because of the love, commitment and dedication of God’s people in every generation to transform the human race.
