What is the disparity between nothing and something? The starving man knows the difference between what is food and what is hunger. The man who is freezing to death knows the difference between frozen wood and a blazing flame. The one who lay on a sweaty bed of hopeless sickness knows the difference between health and approaching death.
But what is the disparity between what is Holy and what is unholy? What is the disparity between a doing of the Holy will of God, and a life that remains subject to all that is not?
Let the starving man eat, and understanding of that disparity blazes clearly in his mind. Let the one who is freezing to death be taken toward life-giving warmth, and he will testify of what is “good”. And let the hopelessly sick be healed. They will proclaim the wonders of health and ability.
We have received the promise of the Holy One. We know He who is of the Righteous Father. The starving, the ones who are freezing, and the hopelessly sick, know of the vague promises of life. How should we who know the Holy Promises of the Living God, LACK?
He said to us, “You can do nothing without me”. But isn’t the knowledge of that statement like the hopelessness of the dying, if indeed we do nothing to procure that Holy Something?
Today comes to us, dressed in the doings of those who went before us. There are very few who became living testimony of the Life God stands ready to dispense. Will tomorrow see the same lack of dedicated souls? Isn’t it our responsibility to procure?
If a man of God will say, “I found no more strength than I did from Him”. If he will say that, he says what is true. But looking at the volume of those blazing testifiers, I am appalled. Can we gather together as one to determine to look into these things? What will it take to produce a powerful people of “today”?
I will not rise into crescendo for the sake of inspiration. I have appealed with what is true. Let the crescendo appear because each one who reads this determines in his soul to do his part. No man can make another do what is right. Prisons keep turning out wicked men. Few who endure the force of men take hold of what is proper. How has Christianity proven to be any different?
No, the force to do and become, continues to lay squarely on the will of each of God’s people. Singly, we stand here. Singly, we will appear before Him. And singly, we will see redemption appear from the mass of men. If a rekindling of determination to be a holy people appears, it will be because we turned, one by one, toward what is Good.
