Fullbore Friday

Isaiah 6:8;
Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
John 15:13;
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
1 John 3:16;
We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren
An American doctor being treated for Ebola in Liberia has “taken a slight turn for the worse overnight,” according to Samaritan’s Purse, an evangelical Christian Charity based in North Carolina.

An "experimental serum" to treat the virus arrived for the two infected Americans, but there was only enough for one person, according to Samaritan’s Purse.

Dr. Kent Brantly, who noticed his Ebola symptoms and quarantined himself last week, offered the dose to the other infected American, missionary Nancy Writebol.
The profession or arms can be a calling, one that often leads to selfless sacrifice - other callings do as well. In our culture we have ship, Shipmate, self.

This comes from somewhere. This comes from a base culture where all others derive. You may hear of a Judeo-Christian culture, but do you know what it means?

Words are one thing; actions another.

Dr. Brantly and his family;

Dr. Brantly; fullbore.
