Making A Difference

“You can do two things with pumpkin seeds. Eat them, an excellent source of protein, or plant them, and watch a successful seed bring back 100 more”–Seth Godin.

“Write your name on hearts, not headstones. Write your epitaph on the lives of those you influence and it will be eternal”–Charles Spurgeon.

“If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble to dust, but if we work on men’s immortal minds, if we impress on them with high principles, the just fear of God and love for their fellow-men, we engrave on those tablets something which no time can efface, and which will brighten and brighten to all eternity”–Daniel Webster.

“If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for”–Charles Spurgeon.

“I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the fact that God has chosen to love and use the most broken of souls, in the most unlikely of circumstances to do such a marvelous work”–Angola Penitentiary (Louisiana) Inmate Pastor Paul Will, after learning that his inmate congregation had been unanimously accepted to become part of the Washington Baptist Association (Louisiana).

“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask, or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever, amen”–Ephesians 3:20-21.

    Excellent! Interestingly enough, Spurgeon’s evangelism was a sovereign grace evangelism. Something both Calvinists and Aminians seem to have forgotten. But the change is coming. A Dr. Eusden put it this way: “Predestination is an invitation to begin one’s spiritual pilgrimage>” Wait until the masses discover that Jesus used therapeutic paradoxes, even the seemingly very opposites to evangelize L4.:16-31 is a good example as is Mt.15:21-28. When we begin to get an understanding of such theology, we will then be on the verge of a Third Great Awakening, one that reaches every soul on earth for a thousand generations and from one end of the starry heaven to the other (Mt.24:31).
