John G. Paton on Missions

Let me record my immovable conviction that this is the noblest service in which any human being, can spend or be spent; and that, if God gave me back my life to be lived over again, I would without one quiver of hesitation lay it on the altar to Christ, that He might use it as before in similar ministries of love, especially amongst those who have never yet heard the Name of Jesus. Nothing that has been endured, and nothing that can now befall me, makes me tremble - on the contrary, I deeply rejoice – when I breathe the prayer that it may please the blessed Lord to turn the hearts of all my children to the Mission Field and that He may open up their way and make it their pride and joy to live and die in carrying Jesus and His Gospel into the heart of the Heathen World!

John G. Paton, Presbyterian missionary to the South Sea Islands (1824-1907)

Thanks for the article link. It was inspiring indeed. Kinda reminds me of the work of the Jesuit priests as portrayed in the movie "The Mission".

I would like to ask you something and would really appreciate your thoughts on it if you have to time.

Qn: Where in the Bible is the principle or concept of Sola Scriptura espoused?

Thanks.
