Vintage message from March 2, 1997.
“When God uses us, when God does something in our lives, we need to share that with someone…The testimony we share with people is generally the testimony that strengthens them. People want to know that God can, in fact, use us…There are a lot of people out there that are saying, ‘I don’t believe God can use me. I don’t understand how God can use me.’ Well, you know, I can tell you that if God can use me, God can use you…We need to share the testimony that God is alive and He’s working…today. He did these great things. It’s all Him, it’s not me, but if God can use me, He can use you, too…
I just [pray] that…we would be very much like the early church, Lord. Though we may have struggles and though we may have a lack of understanding, I just ask, Lord, that we would grow and that we would encourage one another, that we would know what it is to fellowship, that we would know what it is to be a strength to one another…Lord, cause us to always be a body that just simply loves You and gathers together for You, to understand Your Word, to encourage one another, and to sing praises to You.”
