How dare we bind up His will and the end-time harvest of souls. William Temple made this clear in his masterful definition of worship: For worship is the submission of all our nature to God. The pitter-patter of little feet and the murmur of young voices would remind us that we were a family of all ages. What a sense of excitement there is when something eagerly anticipated finally arrives! A friend of mine told me about this amazing man of God, born without legs and arms and this friend shared a video of his testimony.
