THE GLORIOUS DIFFERENCE
Not what we do for God but what God does for us. What impresses the world is not what we do for God but what God does for us. In Joshua chapter 2 Rahab said that when they heard what God had done for the children of Israel , “our hearts did melt…” And the glorious difference in last Sunday’s closing services of our revival was that God did only what He can do, and He did it in such a way that there was no mistake as to who was doing it. He simply glorified Himself and we rejoice in that.
Sunday’s services were among the greatest that our church has ever witnessed. The Spirit of the Lord fell in an awesome way in the Sunday morning services and returned Sunday night to finish the job.
Our evangelist preached a great message on the Second Coming, and the Lord opened the flood gates during the invitation. After a long invitation in which folks got saved and got right with each other, we baptized (among those baptized were two Hebrew Christians) and after the baptism another invitation was extended, which lasted longer than the first, and more folks got saved and got right. Then we had one of those rare, genuine worship experiences with the Lord. At a time like this all I can think of to say is PRAISE THE LORD.
