From a devotion by James H. Kurt:
"To them, it is our duty to call. To darkness, we must bring light, and realize too the fate of Jesus, who will die on the cross for his work, to bring salvation to the world. It is this same cross to which we are all called, for it is by this same cross we have been called. And those who are yet to be gathered in must hear our voice. Let us stand with the Lord and gather in His grain despite the stiffened necks we might find."
