My relationship to Jesus Christ is of such a nature that it compels me to share with any who will receive it, the gospel—the good news of His soon return. Motto

It goes on to emphasis that there must be a deep love of Christ and an earnest desire to yield all to Him. Steps to Christ is a book that concentrates...
