Jonathan Goforth – A Man of God

Jonathan Goforth 

A man who lived up to his name

One night as he was coming out of a street that had a particularly evil reputation, a policeman met him and said, “How have you the courage to go into those places? We policeman never go there except in twos or threes.” “I never walk alone, either,” replied Goforth. “There is always Someone with me.”

Our faith determines our walk

Wisdom of the Ages

“Cast not away your confidence because God defers his performances. That which does not come in your time, will be hastened in his time, which is always the more convenient season. God will work when he pleases, how he pleases, and by what means he pleases. He is not bound to keep our time, but he will perform his work, honour our faith, and reward them that diligently seek him”
– Matthew Henry
