C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

What Can "little ole' me" Do?

Many times we see the world around us and have a desire to do something for God, but then we begin to compare ourselves to Evangelists, Missionaries, Pastors of our churches or on television, and we may wonder what can little me do.

Regardless of one’s age, IQ, and physical condition, we can all do something for the service and glory of Christ. Remember Christ used simple fishermen to walk with Him and lead His church as He returned to the Father till He returns to gather His children home forever.

Scriptures declares that every saved man, woman, and child, at the very moment one is saved by faith in Christ, the Spirit of truth is given to us to guide us and seal us in Christ till the day of redemption. [John 16:13; Ephesians 1:12-14]

A Christian also has Christ in them [Colossians 1:27] and God the Father working in us to do His will that is well pleasing to Him. [Hebrews 13:20-22]

When a Christian feels lead to pray for someone or something, moved to witness to any and every one that needs Christ, called on to help someone whether physically or emotionally, they are being moved by the Holy Spirit and need not to rely on ourselves, but on the power of God to accomplish His will.

If all we can do is pray, if we are obedient to the moving of the Spirit, God can and will bless, and we can make a difference by Him.

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
