you’ll be eaten by cannibals


An aging Christian once objected to John C. Paton’s plan to go as a missionary to the South Sea Islands with the words, “You’ll be eaten by Cannibals!” Paton responded:

Mr. Dickson, you are advanced in years now, and your own prospect is soon to be laid in the grave, there to be eaten by works: I confess to you, that if I can but live and die serving and honoring the Lord Jesus, it will make no difference to me whether I am eaten by Cannibals or worms; and in the Great Day my resurrection body will arise as fair as yours in the likeness of our risen Redeemer.

John Piper, Let the Nations Be Glad, p 111.
