THE GLORY OF CHRISTIAN SERVICE
Jesse M. Hendley
For our message for today, I would like for you to
turn to Romans 10:14 and 15, and we want to think
about The Glory of Christian Service. We read,
"Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall
be saved." That means that everyone in the world can
be saved, if they will only call upon the name of the
Lord Jesus. That is what Jesus is: the Saviour.
Then comes the question: "How then shall they call on
Him Whom they have not believed? And how shall they
believe on Him of Whom they have not heard? And how
shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they
preach except they be sent? Even as it is written, how
beautiful are the feet of them that bring glad tidings
of good things. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by
the Word of Christ."
There are five HOW'S. How shall these people be saved
if we do not bring them to the Lord Jesus Christ?
Every one of us will give an account of this at the
Judgment Seat of Christ.
It is wonderful to be in the service of the Lord.
Daniel Webster, the great statesman and orator, spoke
one time in Boston in 1852 and he emphasized the great
service anyone renders who teaches God's Truth to
others. He said, "If we work upon marble, it will
perish. If we work upon brass, time will efface it. If
we rear temples, they will crumble to dust. But if we
work upon men's immortal minds, if we imbue them with
high principles, with the just fear of God and love of
their fellowman, we engrave on those tablets something
which time cannot efface, which will brighten and
brighten to all Eternity." Daniel Webster recognized
the privilege of being God's instruments in bringing
His Truth to all men. That is the summation of a great
man about the Gospel of the Lord Jesus and the
privilege it is that you and I have in teaching others
the Way of Life! Oh, how we need to live the Christian
life as well as teach it! Shame be upon us if when we
meet the Lord we have not, in some measure, lived it
and spoken it and shown others The Way!
The world NEEDS Christian service. That is what we
mean by revival---new life, the life of God. You know,
I'm grateful for the way the Lord uses this broadcast.
I hope you'll pray about it, that it may reach many
others. We have no way of knowing about its influence
except through the letters that come to us. One lady
wrote us recently and said that since she lost her
mother and father she had felt all-alone in the world.
But hearing this Gospel broadcast she learned that she
was not alone. She felt no longer lonely. When Jesus
comes, LONELINESS GOES!
In a recent campaign in Missouri this letter came to
me. "I thank God for your Gospel message. It has
lifted a burden from my heart. My life has not been
what it should for Christ. There are times when His
Vision dims and I fear. I cannot get the blessings I
need. Do you t ...
