Today’s Passages – Daniel 10 – 12; Proverbs 18
(Second Milers also read – James 2 – 5; Memorize – Philippians 3:10)
“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” – (Daniel 12:3)
Yesterday I received a text message from a very excited member of our church. She had taken a trip down to North Carolina to visit with her father who is very sick. She was concerned about her father’s physical health, but she was even more concerned about his spiritual condition. Now this young lady had never lead anyone to Christ before and she was very apprehensive, but because she had such a love and burden for her dad, she boldly shared Christ with him. Praise the Lord! Her father was gloriously saved. I do not know that in the future she will go on to “turn many to righteousness”, or not; but I do know that she was shining like a star the day she was used of the Lord to win her father.
I do not know about you, but that story encourages me to be a better soul winner. I want to share Christ with the world around me. There was a time in my life when I was overflowing with the gospel: I witnessed to everybody. But, to my shame, somewhere along the way, I lost some of that zeal. I want it back.
Today we will begin a series of revival meetings at our church. I am praying that God will use the meetings along with the preacher, Michael Clark, to stir our hearts for God. Our theme is “That We May Know Him”. I not only want to know Him better, but I also want to do a better job of making Him known to the lost world around me. I am so tired of playing church.
