Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 11/18/12

This week’s scripture is from John:

“No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him…”   (John 6:44)

We can save no one; we have not the power to save a single soul. Only God can save. We can only serve as witnesses to the truth of Jesus Christ. It is useless to engage in debates and disputes with the unsaved. No one can be reasoned or argued into faith in Christ. A soul can only be won if drawn to Christ by the Holy Spirit. We are charged to share the truth and pray for others; that is our faithful service. All else is a chasing after the wind. Yet if we are faithful to witness to the truth of Jesus Christ, then the Holy Spirit will bring in the souls He has drawn. It is not ours to save others; it is ours to be faithful witnesses.

May the Lord bless you to be a faithful witness to Jesus Christ each and every day.
