Gathering in Christ

Acts 11:20
But some of them were men from Cyprus and Cyrene who, when they had come to Antioch, spoke to the Hellenists, preaching the LORD Jesus.

We are not turned into spiritual mediums but into spiritual messengers; the message must be part of ourselves… The natural heart will do any amount of serving, but it takes the heart broken by conviction of sin and baptized by the Holy Ghost and crumpled into the purpose of God before the life becomes the sacrament of its message…

A preacher is one who has realized the call of God and is determined to use his every power to proclaim God’s truth…God takes us out of our own ideas for our lives, and we are “battered into shape and use” as were the disciples after Pentecost… Pentecost made them the incarnation of what they preached… Let God have perfect liberty when you speak.
