Message –Pastor Jimmy Snowden
1 Corinthians 14:26-35
“Love Edifies Part VI”
The tragedy of this late hour is that we have too many dead men in the
pulpits giving out too many dead sermons to too many dead people. Oh!
The horror of it. There is a strange thing that I have seen ‘under the
sun,’ even in the fundamentalist circles; it is preaching without
unction. What is unction? I hardly know. But I know what it is not (or
at least I know when it is not upon my own soul). Preaching without
unction kills instead of giving life. The unctionless preacher is a
savor of death unto death. The Word does not live unless the unction
is upon the preacher. Preacher, with all thy getting—get unction.
–Leonard Ravenhill,Why Revival Tarries, 20.
Christians are not laboring to achieve a life that they do not yet
have or to obtain a victory that has not yet been won. They are
participants in the very life of Christ and in the victory that He has
already won. Christian, you are a partaker of the resurrection life of
Christ, and He has already defeated and broken the power of sin that
you are facing right now—by His death, burial, resurrection, and
ascension! As a participant in His life, your calling is not to try to
achieve something for yourself that He has not achieved, but to
believe what He has already done for you and to walk in it. –Charles
Leiter, Justification and Regeneration, 106-107.
And this is our greatest need. Over and above all that we might see of
the miraculous power of God in demonstration is the character of God
Himself. Miracles and things of thatkind God uses when he feels the
time is appropriate, but men and women are always demanding them.
There are those in the Church today who are so interested in faith
healing for this reason. They say, ‘If only we could do that, then the
people would be interested.’ But, you see, God does not grant it. No,
we must not be interested in God’s activities at the expense of God
Himself. Our ultimate need is to know God Himself and this is possible
to us, in, and through, His goodness. –D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Revival,
Following our Sunday School Classes we enjoy a Pot Luck meal.
