I had a friend come to me and say, “John, I don’t know where the Lord wants me to serve.” I said to him, “Marty, if you had your choice of any service in the world, what would you want?”
He said, “Oh, I have such a burden for my people Israel. I speak French fluently, and Paris is just loaded with Jewish people who don’t know Jesus. I personally would like to go to Paris as a missionary to the Jews.” I checked him on the five spiritual principles and said, “Marty, have you done all these things?” He replied, “Yes, I honestly believe that I am committed to Christ in these areas.”
I said, “Marty, good-bye, have a nice trip.”
