General William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army, once said, “While women weep…while little children go hungry…while there yet remains one dark soul without the light of God, I’ll fight…I’ll fight to the very end.” General Booth believed that people without Christ in their lives were spiritually lost. This is based on a Bible verse which says, “He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God, does not have life.” Booth was on biblically sound grounds. He reached others through kindness, feeding the hungry, and sharing the gospel to prepare them for heaven. William Booth’s life mirrors that of the One he served– Jesus Christ. Our Saviour too reached out to weeping women, hungry children and souls in darkness. It is, however, not only the poor and homeless who need the gospel, because “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
