Attempting The Impossible

While preparing for class at the Training Center, I came across this quote by Spurgeon on Matthew 28:18-20

"You have a factor here that is absolutely infinite, and what does it matter as to what other factors may be. 'I will do as much as as I can' says one. Any fool can do that. He that believes in Christ does what he can not do, attempts the impossible and performs it."

Today I pray that each one of us would perform the impossible. Judson performed the impossible. While he was in jail, a place many of us would have given up, he said, "The prospects are as bright as the promises of God". John Mott, stirred by God at Mt. Hermon was instrumental in the Student Volunteer Movement. May we get away from doing what we can do, may we allow Christ to work in us to do what we cann not. Believe God. He is able!!

That is my heart's prayer too, Bro. Tony. William Carey said,"Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God. God has given me a great burden to get a Gospel witness to the world's Deaf population. A people group of over 250 million with very few people trying to reach them. Our family covets your prayers, and also pray that God would raise up more workers for the Deaf World.

For Deaf Souls,
Bro. Shane
