From Douglas Jacoby’s The God Who Dared:

Our mission is to reproduce the character of Christ in as many people as we can before we exit the stage of life. To reproduce that character—to bear the fruit of the Spirit—in our own lies, in our children, in those we have led to Christ, and in disciples whom we are able to influence and lead to be better disciples. Remember, Jesus died in his 30s. His public ministry lasted only three years. What he was able to achieve—well, the impact of that one man’s life is infinite.
