Two Thousand Twelve
Dear Pastor and Friends,
I was recently again confronted and convicted by the prayer of Robert Murray McCheyne; “God make me as holy as a saved sinner can be.” There ought to be and must be the desire of an holy life beating in the heart of the child of God. Sad to say, many of us are like the individuals Oswald Chambers described when he said, “Some of us have spiritual character so microscopic that it will take the archangels to find it!” There needs to be in our lives substantial evidence that we are God’s children. We need to possess a “new-birth” certificate that is not phony, fake or even a smidgen Hawaiian! The real thing will be our only passport to Heaven and be testified to in our daily walk.
Thank you so much for your continual prayers and generous giving to our home and work. I wish I could report great meetings and scores of salvation decisions, but truth trumps hype. I am, however, laboring faithfully in the field, constantly seeking the fruit that remains, and a flickering hope of revival. Every once in a while, there is a little fire burning and that spark keeps me on the path to God and committed to the work. The next three months are full of meetings – please pray that one or all of them will result in real revival!
May God bless each one of you in your church, home, work and social life is my prayer.
Your companion in grace,
