Pleading The Lord’s Cause

February 3, 2012

Charles Finney, a 29-year-old lawyer, was concerned about his soul’s salvation. On October 10, 1821, he retreated to a wooded area near his home for a time of prayer. While there, he had a profound conversion experience. He wrote: “The Holy Spirit . . . seemed to go through me, body and soul. . . . Indeed it seemed to come in waves of liquid love.”

The next day, he met with a client who had come to him for legal representation. Finney told him: “I have a retainer from the Lord Jesus Christ to plead His cause and cannot plead yours.” He left his law practice and entered the ministry. Later, he would be used mightily of God to bring others to Christ.

The apostle Paul was also called to plead the Lord’s cause. He wrote, “I am appointed for the defense of the gospel” (Phil. 1:17). The word translated “defense” was used in the ancient world for an attorney pleading his case in a court of law. All believers are called to share the wonderful news of the saving grace of God. “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God” (2 Cor. 5:20).

What a great privilege to be used of God to bring others to Christ!

Do we really care for those
Who live beneath God’s wrath?
The gospel must be shared with them,
To turn them from death’s path. —Sper

The good news of Christ is too good to keep to yourself.

Read: Philippians 1:12-18

I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. —Philippians 1:17
Bible in a year:
Leviticus 20-23

Great pictures bringing honor to our troops.

Salute and Prayers offered up for Our Armed Forces.

Salute to my fellow Vets.

I have a “hobby” - whenever I see someone wearing a hat or jacket or pin which identifies them as a fellow Vet, I approach and tell them “Thank You for serving this great country.” All seem to appreciate the gesture and some ask if I’m a Vet. I’ve had some pretty interesting conversations in the grocery store, from current Vets to WWII Veterans. It’s the least I can do to honor each Veteran. There are no plans to cease my operations.

Care to join me fellow Vets?

Good evening/morning, Mac...*HUGS*...a tad late. Hope you had a good day.

We sprung a leak in my folks bathroom last night....drip, drip, drip out of the light fixture. My Dad told me last night, and my Mom found me this morning about 6:30a, asking....”are you ready for another problem?” (Every day since Saturday there has been some issue to handle or deal with...one day at a time.)

So I called the roofers and left work early to meet the guy who came out. Lots of ice dams. Made arrangements for them to come and shovel the snow off the whole roof. AND I found out my folks have NOT been using the bathroom fan. THAT starts tonight to help with the ice problem.

Come spring, we need to figure out how to fix the leaks, help alleviate the ice dam issue, and make some repairs to previous leaking that made it down to the laundry room.

LOL! Oops...too many projects going at one time. Planning parental appointments both Friday and Saturday. And roof shovelers are coming tomorrow...I’m trying to alleviate the leak in the bathroom. Had a guy out today shoveling near the vents and making gulleys with ice melt.

Maybe subconscious....I should have remembered and posted it much earlier. But he is cute.

After 40 degrees mid-day, now it is 23.

Good morning, Sand...((HUGS))...hope you had a good District Meeting. The COLD North, below zero for a couple weeks, got up to 40 degrees yesterday and is back into the lower 20s over night...the trees have lost all their flocking and we’ve sprung a leak in my folks bathroom, coming thru the light fixture. Dealing with the roofer and making arrangements for the roof to be shoveled off today.
