“Nevertheless, the righteous will hold to their ways, and those with clean hands will grow stronger.” – Job 17:9
WAR CRY GIVEAWAY
To be in to win a copy of Called to Preach, tell us what you think makes a great sermon.
Great sermons are prepared by “architects”, “muddlers” are hard to listen to; but also great “architects” must realise that “the communicating agent of the Gospel is the Holy Spirit”.
Zum Leben in der Kraft des Heiligen Geistes gehoert das innere Achten und Hoeren auf ihn, ebenso der Gehorsam das Gehoerte zu leben.” – Peter Strauch
No need to tell you that the above quote by Peter Strauch is in German. I am not going to translate the quote for you but by the time you have finished reading this entry you have a fairly good idea what he is saying.
I am really excited!
I received a letter this morning and the letter started with Peter Strauch’s quote. He is actually saying in that quote what has beed on my mind for a long time and is still very much on my mind at the present time and will always be on my mind!
He is telling us what is necessary to live in the power of the Holy Spirit.
He is mentioning three things, namely:
1. We must have deep respect for God the Holy Spirit. We must think highly of God the Holy Spirit.
2. We must listen to God the Holy Spirit.
3. We must be obedient to what we have heard and we must live it.
As true followers of the Lord Jesus Christ we have deep respect for God the Holy Spirit and we think highly of God the Holy Spirit. And we are willing to listen to the Holy Spirit.
BUT how obedient are we to what we have heard and know already? BUT are we living what we have heard and know already?
At times I want to tell myself:
BE OBEDIENT TO WHAT YOU KNOW ALREADY!!
TO BE ALMOST SAVED IS TO BE TOTALLY LOST”
