“Even though I like to call people, young people in particular, to give themselves to a radical, risk taking, sacrificial lifestyle for the sake of mission, I don’t do that with any sense that this will minimize their joy. When I talk about sacrifice, when I talk about wartime lifestyle, when I talk about stripping down for the sake of mission, I’m talking about MAXIMIZING joy! My experience tells me and the Bible tells me that the people who lay themselves out most fully, at most risk, with most sacrifice for Jesus bare the greatest dividends!”
