Great evangelism in the near future!
Let’s do some brainstorming together on the message below.
After His resurrection, Christ ascended to heaven, and He is today presenting our needs to the Father. "I have graven thee upon the palms of My hands," He says. Isaiah 49:16. It cost something to engrave them there. It cost untold agony. If we would humble ourselves before God, and be kind and courteous and tenderhearted and pitiful, there would be one hundred conversions to the truth where now there is only one. But, though professing to be converted, we carry around with us a bundle of self that we regard as altogether too precious to be given up. It is our privilege to lay this burden at the feet of Christ and in its place take the character and similitude of Christ. The Saviour is waiting for us to do this.--Testimonies to the Church, Vol. 9, page 189, p.4
So last year if we were instrumental in leading 7 people to Christ it would have been 700 if we had been connected with the green above.
Do not ask God to humble you! Why?
We should not pray for God to humble us; for when God takes hold of us, He will humble us in a way that we would not enjoy. But we must day by day humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God. We are to work out our own salvation with fear and with trembling. While it is God that works in us to will and to do of His own good pleasure, we are to co-operate with Him while He works through us.--Review and Herald, July 12, 1887.
Share with me some ways you think we can humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God and practical examples of how to be kind and courteous tenderhearted and pitiful???????
Hope to hear from you soon!
Romans 9:28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.
