1. God helping me, I will help my brothers and sisters in Christ, because they are my brothers and sisters.

  2. There will be no misgiving, no shrinking back, no calculation of overpowering odds, no terror of possible consequences, if you frankly accept the gift which God offers you tomorrow.

  3. If you are apostles at all, you are apostles, not of men, nor by man. Your sufficiency is of God.

  4. But there is another danger besetting your path. I mean the error of regarding your own capacities instead of your work, of putting self-consciousness in place of God.

  5. God did not give you the spirit of cowardice.

  6. God gave you not a spirit of faithlessness, not a spirit of despair.

  7. This is God's work. Therefore it must be triumphant. There is no place for misgiving or despondency.

  8. You will bear a commission from God, for you have received a call from God.

  9. Yes, God is the end of your work, but He is the beginning also.

  10. God is the last link of the chain, but He is the first also.
