    I am not Ezra and my audience is not Israel, but Ezra 7:10 capsulizes my life-mission:

    "For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the LORD and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel."

    -Ezra 7:10, NASB

    Martin Luther, before the Diet of Worms in 1521, communicates my passion for the Word of God: "I am mastered by the passages of Scripture which I have quoted, and my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and will not recant, for it is neither safe nor honest to violate one's conscience. I can do no other. Here I take my stand, God being my helper. Amen."
