"… if you utter worthy, not worthless, words, you will be my spokesman." (Jeremiah 15:19 b)
Roger Green writes in his book of Catherine Booth, that she was convinced of the vital and growing importance of the spiritual music in evangelism. But she also realized that there was a danger if the music was separated from the spiritual. She said:
The moment you start to elevate ... brilliance in the music itself, separate from the spiritual results, it immediately begins to lose power. So it is with everything else, too, - meetings, testimonies, songs, marching, or prayers. There must be a combination of the human and the divine. When one separates the human from the divine it ceases to have any power over souls. Do not forget this!
I think this is true also for today's Christianity. We must never be complacent with the, ‘that meeting, testimony, or music was wonderful’.
Our goal is to convey a divine message - to be the mouth of God. We can only do this if we in everything we do are in contact with the divine and let the human subordinate to the divine.
Lord let us be true in everything we do. Help us not to try to show off in ourselves but exalt You in everything.
