2 Timothy 3:10-11
But you have fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, charity, patience,…
There is a legend which tells how a saint once in vision saw a band of Franciscan friars standing round Jesus in heaven. He noticed that the lips of each were crimson. He asked the meaning of this, and to him the Lord said, "These are the great preachers of my Cross, for the story of My redeeming love only comes with power over lips that are red with My precious blood." Yes; the preaching that will save preacher and hearers is the preaching that comes from crimson lips.
