 Samuel Logan Brengle

Samuel L. Brengle's Life-changing Experience; Friday, January 9, 2004
___________________________________________________
Samuel Logan Brengle, preparing for the pastorate, became convinced
that a person can be set apart (sanctified) for God's use and filled
with God's Spirit. "I saw the humility of Jesus, and my pride; the
meekness of Jesus, and my temper; the lowliness of Jesus, and my
ambition; the purity of Jesus and my unclean heart; the faithfulness
of Jesus, and the deceitfulness of my heart; the unselfishness of
Jesus, and my selfishness; the trust and faith of Jesus, and my doubts
and unbelief; the holiness of Jesus and my unholiness. I got my eyes
off everybody but Jesus and myself, and I came to loathe myself."
For weeks he could hardly sleep. Finally on the morning of this day,
January 9, 1885, he made up his mind he must be sanctified--or
eternally lost. However, he could not find peace. "I was seeking the
Holy Spirit that I might use Him, rather than that He might use me."
Finally he was able to ask God to put him in even the most out-of-
the-way place or make him stammer in the pulpit--if only God would
be with him. Peace came when he believed God's promise, "If we
confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and
cleanse us from all unrighteousness." With glowing face and changed
life, he became a notable leader in the Salvation Army.

Hi Mike
It is one of the great joys of this site that it keeps introducing us to saints who have been forgotten by most of the 21st Century church. Brengle was an amazing character.

There are quite a few of Brengle's books available as pdfs online at the Wesley Centre. You may have to register but it is free and there is some wonderful stuff on this site. Just follow the authors names down until you get to Brengle; you will see a picture too.

Couldn't have said it better if I tried.
Don't know if I will ever be able to fully express my gratitude to all who contribute here.
Thanks to Greg and others like yourself I have been exposed to so many giants of the faith. The more I go backwords, the more amazed I am at how these could have been overlooked and almost forgotten. I am truly a blessed man.

Thanks to you all, it is a "great joy!"

Give me 'the old path's', anyday.
