Early in this century a London newspaper carried an advertisement that read: "Men wanted for hazardous darkness, and constant danger. Safe return doubtful. Honor and recognition in case of success." The ad, signed by famous Arctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, brought Inquiries from thousands of men. Commenting on this in his book Be Faithful, Warren W. Wiersbe said, "If Jesus Christ had advertised for workers, the announcement might have read something like this: &ls;Men and women wanted for difficult task of helping to build My church. You will often be misunderstood, even by those working with you. You will face constant attack from an invisible enemy. You may not see the results of your labor, and your full reward will not come till after all your work is completed. It may cost you your home, your ambitions, even your life.'" - D.C.E.
