I Would Die For You
on September 23, 2008
I purchased this book on a Thursday, started reading it, and finished it at 2am on Friday. I could not put it down. BJ Higgins' life, and the way he lived, is a battle-cry for those of us who call ourselves Christians to step up, to be a "missionary" within our own circle of influence. I realized as I finished this book, that, although my life may not be called to be an overseas missionary, I can certainly do more than just go to church on Wednesday and Sunday.
This book did not make me feel guilty, but did cause some introspection. I was just touched that this young man made Christ his sole focus, and a relationship with God is what he sought. A true modern-day David, I shudder to think about all of the times I've squandered when I could've have taken an opportunity to share the Word with someone. Here is a young man who was truly used by God, who was WILLINGLY used by God, and who's story should be told over and over.
I assigned my kids to read this book and my oldest son was inspired to become a missionary with Awe Star Ministries (although the book that planted the first seeds was Peace Child). His reason? When Dr. Moore challenges "Who will take BJ's place?" my son willingly said, "I will...." I pray others will also be inspired to take BJ's place.
