Quote Thursday - Count Zinzindorf

"I have but one passion - it is He, it is He alone. The world is the field and the field is the world; and henceforth that country shall be my home where I can be most used in winning souls for Christ."
- Count Zinzindorf

Do we have this same passion, this all-consuming fire for the furtherance of His kingdom and the glory of His name? Are we consumed with Christ; so much so, that we are willing to leave everything to go where He has called us, even if it be to another country? Would we go out of sheer love for Him?

Can we say with Paul, "But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. " (Philippians 3:7-11)
