Two Moravian Missionaries Just Sold Themselves to Slavery. The Reason Why Is Beyond Thinkable!

Spread the love


One of the best Christian stories ever told is the life of two Moravian Missionaries who sold themselves as slaves to preach the Gospel. They learned about the thousands of slaves in West Indies dying without even hearing the Gospel because they were forbidden to. The owner has prohibited preachers and clergymen to enter their land because he himself does not believe in God.

The other Moravians from Herrnhut saw these two lads off, in their early twenties, never to return again for they have sold themselves into lifetime slavery. Why have they done this? Because they knew it is the only way they can share the Gospel to thousands of slaves in Africa. Their family wept knowing they will never see them again.

The last words that were heard for them were these: May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering!

More than the inspiration that these two Moravian missionaries bring is a challenge for Christians to respond to God’s call to go and make disciple of nations, by all means. May the Lamb receive the reward of His suffering through us!
