The Power of the Cross!
by Shepherd . 3/13/2013 / Devotionals
Have you ever wondered just how many lost souls there are in this world? Has it ever occurred to you, that we, as a nation of believers, must follow in Christ's footsteps and bring into the fold, God's chosen people who have strayed? I was one of those people who had lost all hope of ever finding my way, until quite suddenly and out of the blue, God sent me a person who had decided that they would never, ever give up on me until I came to the light of God's truth. Wow! What a journey that was! She was filled with the Spirit and the Word of God, and boy did she never let up! Who is this person you might ask? She is a very special child of God. A normal every day housewife, just going about her business. A person perhaps like you or me, with a family to take care of, and not someone who is seen to be a wise ruler of the world. If it weren't for her determination to never let go, who knows where I'd be right now! So when you consider that there are maybe dozens, if not more in your sphere of influence, just think of how many could get saved if you do like my friend did, and never, ever give up on them. Please don't underestimate the power of Jesus and the cross in getting your message out there - it is way more powerful than you could possibly ever imagine...
Isaiah 60:1-3 "Arise, shine;
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising."
All glory to God, as always, for these words. Amen.
