Brother thank you for sharing that, I first heard this in a book called: True Discipleship by William McDonald. Also Leonard Ravenhill quoted it in his sermon on this site: [url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=776]Eternity (CD Quality) [/url]! thanks for sharing again. I actually wrote it in the inside cover of my old bible.
