Serve Wholeheartedly

 

 

THE PROMISE 

Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do...

— Ephesians 6:7,8, NIV 

 

THE TESTIMONY 

In our large cities every kind of wickedness imaginable is being revealed, and yet among the masses, yes, even among the scoffers, there are some who are listening for the trumpet to give the signal of alarm. But they listen in vain. The appropriate warnings have not been given. Is it not high time that the messengers should awake, and give the warning message that is to prepare the world for the judgments that are right upon us? 

Let there be an awakening, and heartfelt confessions of sin. Let there be a seeking after God. Let the shepherds throw off the lethargy that is upon them. Wake up, brethren, for Christ’s sake wake up! Let earnest, organized efforts be made that light may go forth to those in darkness, who are eating and drinking with those who are befogged with skepticism. 

At our meetings held in the cities, and at our camp-meetings, we do not ask for great demonstrations, but we ask that the men who come before the people to present the truth shall be in earnest, and shall reveal that God is with them. There must be a special seeking after God, that the work of the meeting may be carried on under the deep movings of the Holy Spirit. There must be no mingling of the wrong with the right. In the past we have had abundant evidence that God will work through those who place themselves wholly on his side; and this evidence will again be given. We must have at our camp-meetings Christians of the class of whom it was said, “Ye are the light of the world.” “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Those who seek the Lord in humility of heart will be uplifted and refreshed. 

“Come out from among them, and be ye separate.” Come into the light, brethren, and lead others to the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Those who in faith accept the leadings of the Spirit of God will see where their dangers lie, and will make decided moves in the right direction. 

— The Review and Herald, July 23, 1908 

 

THE RESPONSE 

Seek after God with a heartfelt confession of sin. 

Especially seek God that the meetings may be carried on under the deep movings of the Holy Spirit.

Place yourself wholly on God’s side asking Him to work through you. Seek the Lord in humility of heart to be uplifted and refreshed. 

Come into the light, in faith accept the leadings of the Spirit of God to lead others to the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
