The title of this post is how Arthur at “The Voice of One Crying out in Suburbia” began his post “Time to get off the bench.” In the post, Arthur explains that he has decided to go to Haiti in January. He says:
After talking with my wife and the folks at the Haiti Orphan Project, I have decided to accompany their team to Haiti in January right around the anniversary of the devastating earthquake that left an already troubled nation utterly devastated. Time to get off the bench and get into Kingdom work… In speaking with my family, I see this as something that we as a family are looking at being involved in. Dave Black has said before that he regrets waiting so long to get into Kingdom work and I am taking his admonition to heart for me and for my family.
This is so exciting! I know that God will use Arthur to serve some orphans in Haiti, but I also know that God can use this trip to change Arthur and his family. I’m looking forward to what happens during and after Arthur’s trip.
By the way, I realize more and more that the more someone follows Christ, the more they will serve other people.
