 Will he rise up in the judgment with you on that day?

This 63 year old Muslim man traveled 7500 miles on a bike, through 13 countries, because of his fear of God. If we, Christians, know the love of God how much more should we be zealous and single eyed in our devotion to Christ. Should not our devotion to "The Truth" exceed the devotion of pagans to pagan gods?

42The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Re: Will he rise up in the judgment with you on that day?

Where are the moden day examples of Christians who have done "great exploits" and have "lost all" for Christ! Surely the cause of Christ is worth it!

[b]Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken[/b]
[i]by Henry Lyte[/i]

1. Jesus, I my cross have taken,
All to leave and follow Thee.
Destitute, despised, forsaken,
Thou from hence my all shall be.
Perish every fond ambition,
All I’ve sought or hoped or known.
Yet how rich is my condition!
God and heaven are still my own.

2. Let the world despise and leave me,
They have left my Savior, too.
Human hearts and looks deceive me;
Thou art not, like them, untrue.
O while Thou dost smile upon me,
God of wisdom, love, and might,
Foes may hate and friends disown me,
Show Thy face and all is bright.

3. Man may trouble and distress me,
’Twill but drive me to Thy breast.
Life with trials hard may press me;
Heaven will bring me sweeter rest.
Oh, ’tis not in grief to harm me
While Thy love is left to me;
Oh, ’twere not in joy to charm me,
Were that joy unmixed with Thee.

4. Go, then, earthly fame and treasure,
Come disaster, scorn and pain
In Thy service, pain is pleasure,
With Thy favor, loss is gain
I have called Thee Abba Father,
I have stayed my heart on Thee
Storms may howl, and clouds may gather;
All must work for good to me.

5. Soul, then know thy full salvation
Rise o’er sin and fear and care
Joy to find in every station,
Something still to do or bear.
Think what Spirit dwells within thee,
Think what Father’s smiles are thine,
Think that Jesus died to win thee,
Child of heaven, canst thou repine.

6. Haste thee on from grace to glory,
Armed by faith, and winged by prayer.
Heaven’s eternal days before thee,
God’s own hand shall guide us there.
Soon shall close thy earthly mission,
Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days,
Hope shall change to glad fruition,
Faith to sight, and prayer to praise.

Indeed, that is a great hymn, Greg :-) It brought this to mind - a few lines from Wesley's Soldiers of Christ, arise and put your armour on!

Soldiers of Christ, arise, and put your armor on,
Strong in the strength which God supplies through His eternal Son.
Strong in the Lord of hosts, and in His mighty power,
Who in the strength of Jesus trusts is more than conqueror.

Stand then in His great might, with all His strength endued,
But take, to arm you for the fight, the panoply of God;
To keep your armor bright, attend with constant care,
Still walking in your Captain’s sight, and watching unto prayer.

From strength to strength go on, wrestle and fight and pray,
Tread all the powers of darkness down and win the well fought day.
That, having all things done, and all your conflicts passed,
Ye may o’ercome through Christ alone and stand entire at last.

Tune: From strength to strength

This tune is in the Presbyterian hymnbook of the Church of Scotland. I don't know where else it can be found. I haven't found it online.

Alternative tunes: Kirkwood, Silver Street, St Ethelwald
