THE SEARCH FOR SILVER

   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.
