BY MeAgain: "We should have reckoned ourselves dead unto sin, prayed till we learned His "still small voice" and then "followed" Him from thence. "Walking in the Spirit" is the complete fulfillment of obedience, relationship and cooperation in active ministry."
Amen! I am reminded of a wonderful old hymn that really sums things up quite simply, "trust and obey".When we walk with the Lord in the light of his word, what a glory he sheds on our way! While we do his good will, he abides with us still, and with all who will trust and obey. Refrain:Trust and obey, for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. 2.Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share, but our toil he doth richly repay; not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross, but is blest if we trust and obey. (Refrain) 3.But we never can prove the delights of his love until all on the altar we lay; for the favor he shows, for the joy he bestows, are for them who will trust and obey. (Refrain) 4.Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at his feet, or we'll walk by his side in the way; what he says we will do, where he sends we will go; never fear, only trust and obey. (Refrain)In Christ,Ron
This is so true. I was thinking yesterday about all of the truth that is just found on this website. There are so many sermons that if we would glean from each message we listen to just one word from the Lord and actively apply it to our lives there would be revival! If we would take these messages on prayer and really [b]pray more[/b] I truly believe God would do a greater work in mens hearts. How desperate are we to know God and to walk intimately with Him? Are we content to be ministered to and ministered to and yet never pour out anything in return? My life is the neediest of all. I fear my heart is so hard that I often try to apply the words I hear to the lives of others and neglect my own.[i]Lord, whatever it takes, please bring us(me!) to the place where we hang on Your every Word and in our love for You, eagerly obey ALL that You ask us to do! Lord, break the hardness in our hearts that we might be more sensitive to the leading of Your Spirit![/i]
