NOTEWORTHY QUOTE 1
From time-to-time I will be posting quotes that I view as noteworthy.
The following is a statement quoted from S. J. Hill found in Chapter 4 of Frank DeCenso Jr.’s book, “Amazed by the Power of God”.
“According to Mark 16:16-18, Jesus promised that certain signs would follow every believer. These signs were not meant to merely follow the apostles, pastors or evangelists. The Lord used many other believers to preach, work miracles, cast out demons, and heal the sick. Stephen, Philip and Ananias were not apostles, and yet they were used significantly in the work of the ministry.
What we need today is not more people giving up their jobs, dedicating their lives to “full-time Christian service”, and seeking some form of religious employment; what is needed is for all of us as Christians to become full-time disciples of Jesus, witnessing and ministering in the realm of life and employment we now find ourselves. What we could do in any other place or circumstance, we can do right where where we are. We can share our faith, pray for the sick and those in need, liberate the demonically oppressed, and serve our neighbor in love.”
