Inspired Quote of the Day

More Important than preaching?

In these last days Jesus is concerned with Finishing His work. But that work will never be finished by anyone who doesn’t have a real relationship with Jesus. Their are many who are more ready to preach about the truth than to practice it in daily life. But what we need is more than mere preaching of the truth theoretically, what we need is a practical experience with Jesus! And this comes through much time spent in personal communion with God. This will impart a power to our preaching that nothing else can give. Notice the following quotations and let inspiration inspire you (the following quotations almost seem to good to be true, but as I have already stated, it is to good not to be true ):

Nothing is more needed in our work than the practical results of communion with God. We should show by our daily lives that we have peace and rest in the Saviour. His peace in the heart will shine forth in the countenance. It will give to the voice a persuasive power. Communion with God will ennoble the character and the life. Men will take knowledge of us, as of the first disciples, that we have been with Jesus. This will impart to the worker a power that nothing else can give. Of this power he must not allow himself to be deprived.  {MH 512.1} 

    “When He [the Spirit of truth] is come, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.” The preaching of the word will be of no avail without the continual presence and aid of the Holy Spirit. This is the only effectual teacher of divine truth. Only when the truth is accompanied to the heart by the Spirit will it quicken the conscience or transform the life. One might be able to present the letter of the word of God, he might be familiar with all its commands and promises; but unless the Holy Spirit sets home the truth, no souls will fall on the Rock and be broken. No amount of education, no advantages, however great, can make one a channel of light without the co-operation of the Spirit of God. The sowing of the gospel seed will not be a success unless the seed is quickened into life by the dew of heaven. Before one book of the New Testament was written, before one gospel sermon had been preached after Christ’s ascension, the Holy Spirit came upon the praying apostles. Then the testimony of their enemies was, “Ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine.” Acts 5:28.  {DA 671.4}
