   Posted by: pastordiehl   in WORK OF AN EVANGELIST

In his book The No-Guilt Guide to Witnessing, George Sweeting tells that during a serious shortage of currency in Great Britain, Oliver Cromwell (1599-1658) selected a group of men to search for silver to meet the need.

Several months later they filed this report: “We have searched the empire in vain to find silver. To our dismay, we found none except in the great cathedrals, where the saints are constructed of choice silver.”

When he heard that discouraging report, Cromwell issued this order: “Let’s melt down the saints and put them into circulation.”

As we conclude this series on Evangelism, I suggest we follow Cromwell’s advice today. Let’s put ourselves into circulation in the world around us and see what God might do through us.

I love this article as to me it is like to be sifted as wheat. We can go to Acts chapter nine for Saul[Pauls] conversion as to the point of your life where there is no where to run but to Jesus, then as we are led blindly for a time learning only to trust God only to then meet with our own ananias where we receive our true sight and begin to understand our calling for the Lord. Think about Ananias,as he says ,you want me to do what Lord! for this guy!! Thank God he was obedient as we must be obedient and longsuffering with new chrisitians who may be in that period of blindness and teach them as we did to trust in God as he takes us into new situations in our walk. And then Oh to receive the wonderful calling. amen Praise the Lord Jesus Today for his everlasting gooodness in our lives! All in love KerryD.
