Priority

 

"I feel my spirit stirred within me. I feel to the depth of my being that the truth must be borne to other countries and nations and to all classes.

 

Let the missionaries of the cross proclaim that there is one God, and one Mediator between God and man, who is Jesus Christ the Son of the Infinite God. This needs to be proclaimed throughout every church in our land" (Ms40-1891.78; Ellen White 1888 Materials 886.3).

Perspective

 

"The knowledge of God and of Jesus Christ expressed in character is an exaltation above everything else that is esteemed on earth or in heaven. It is the very highest education. It is the key that opens the portals of the heavenly city. This knowledge it is God’s purpose that all who put on Christ shall possess" (MH 457).
