Northway Christian Church – Dallas, Texas
Day 7 – Thursday, May 21, 2015
The Proof of the Holy Spirit’s Presence is Faithfulness                                    ____________________________________________________________

Scripture – Matthew 25:21

Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.

Thought

There is a greatness in unknown names, with petty round of little duties, little avocations; to accept unmurmuringly a low position; to be misunderstood, misrepresented, maligned, without complaint, to smile for the joys of others when the heart is aching; to banish all ambition, all pride, and all restlessness, in a single regard to our Savior’s work; he who does this is a greater  hero than he who for one hour storms a breach, or for one day rushes onward undaunted in the flaming front of shot and shell.  His works will follow him.  He may be no hero to the world, but he is one of God’s heroes.  (F.W. Faber)

Prayer

Holy Spirit, sent by the Father, ignite in us your holy fire;
strengthen your children with the gift of faith,
revive your Church with the breath of love,
and renew the face of the earth,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
