    Demand for Continuous Labors

    This increased interest in the message called for ministers who could devote their whole time to gospel work. This they could not do without some means of support besides their own hand labor. No system of finance had yet been established, so no salaries were then held out for their encouragement. In 1851, the following Testimony respecting laborers was given: “They will have to go out by faith, trusting in him who has called them to his work, and he will open the way before them, as far as will be for their own good and his glory. Jesus, the great teacher and pattern, had not where to lay his head. His life was one of toil, sorrow, and suffering; he then gave himself for us. Those who, in Christ’s stead, beseech souls to be reconciled to God, and who hope to reign with Christ in glory, must expect to be partakers of his sufferings here.”-“Experience and Views,” page 54.COOD 103.3
