The Holy Spirit also witnesses to us about this. For after saying, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” then He adds, “Their sins and lawless deeds will I remember no more.”
— Hebrews 10:15-17, MEV
God’s workers...must themselves have surrendered all to God, that they may tell those for whom they labor the need and meaning of unreserved surrender.
Those who put their hand to the work of God must depend on the blessing and wisdom that come from above. It is the Holy Spirit that makes powerful the presentation of the truth, and changes the temper and habits of man.
He who calls men to repentance must commune with God in prayer. He must cling to the Mighty One, saying, “I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.” Give me power to win souls to Christ.
There is not one tithe of the pleading with God that there will be when Christ breathes on us, and says, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost.” Be assured, my brethren and sisters, that God’s Spirit will plead for the conversion of souls, with groanings that can not be uttered.
When there comes from the lips of the sinner the cry, “I fear that my sins are too grievous to be forgiven,” point to Jesus, saying, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” Lead him to look away from himself to the Saviour, and the victory is won.
In our work we have an ever-present Helper. If we feel our great need, and draw near to God, he will draw near to us, and will use us as channels through which to communicate the vital energy that will rouse souls from careless indifference, and lead them to seek God before it is too late.
Earnest, living faith is needed,—faith that will take firm hold of the promises made to the followers of Christ.
