We can serve the Lord, and become God's servant, is all because of the love of Christ moved us. Another important understanding is, we are been commission a honorable duty. We felt honor yet humble by this great commission. This lead us to realized that giving our lives, is the highest calling one can have.
Japanese bushido (Way of warrior) is the absolute faithfulness to the master, even willing to do Seppuku (suicide) when master commands it. Christ not only die for us first, He saved us, and promise an eternal inheritance for us. We need to learn a true bushido, faithfulness to the right object, who is Christ. Because His hearts want this unreach nation to be reach by the gospel. We desire to see more Japanese to have true bushido to the right person. The right person is the one true God, our Lord Jesus Christ.
May God help us to remember on that day, He consecrated us for this glorious purpose. We offer our lives to Him for this glorious mission.
“13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” 14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? 15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent?" (Rom. 10:11-15)
