Notes From The Lighthouse

MISSING AN OPPORTUNITY?

Why the reluctance?  This is a question I as a Pastor, often ponder over.  When a door of opportunity to participate in the work of God opens, why are we sometimes reluctant to walk though it?  When the Lord reaches out to us to join hands to participate as a partner in an endeavor, why are we sometimes in an reluctant?

We need a fresh revelation of the fact that the greatest joy in the world and the highest privilege a human being can experience is to be a part of what God is doing.

God could get His work done without us; however, the invitation to include us is His highest expression of love.  Yes, we often allow our enemy to cause us to feel as though it is an imposition.  We find ourselves thinking as though teaching a home Bible study, participating in a Sunday school class, or some other such activity is an infringement on our lives.  God help us!

We need a new understanding concerning the honor of being God’s partner.  It seems to me He would accomplish His work more easily without us.  It appears to me when He uses us, He includes only the potential of human failure and shortcomings.  Nevertheless, He offers us the opportunity to be a part of what He is doing.  The only logical reason for this is His love for us.

I have heard many explanations of why David, after picking up five stones “ran” to his encounter with Goliath.  While others were trying to avoid the assignment, David “ran” to get involved.

I have concluded that David realized God was getting ready to kill the giant and if he could get there in time God just might use him to accomplish the task.  God could have eliminated Goliath any way He wanted to, but He used a little shepherd boy who understood the honor of being a part of what God was doing.  We need a revival of David’s revelation.  It is not a time to be reluctant to get involved if we are going to reach the world before Jesus comes.  Let’s us as Apostolics, get involved with winning souls!  Don’t miss the opportunity!

A FATHER’S RESPONSIBILITY

A careful man I ought to be, a little fellow follows me.

I do not dare to go astray, for fear he’ll go the self-same way.

Not once can I escape his eyes: What’er he sees me do he tries.

Like me he says he’s going to be, that little chap who follows me.

He thinks that I am good and fine, believes in every word of mine.

The base in me he must not see, that little chap who follows me.

I must remember as I go through summer sun/winter snow.

I’m building for the years to be, that little chap who follows me.
