God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you . . . may have an abundance for every good work.
- 2 Corinthians 9:8, NKJV
Thirty-five years ago, just about every self-respecting person in the South went to church on Sunday. It was part of our culture. But I knew the religious pablum the people were being fed didn’t even come close to satisfying their emptiness within-because I knew I wasn’t satisfied.
Looking back, I can plainly see that God was using my need to stir me up and make me aware of the needs of others. But what could one person do in the face of such overwhelming spiritual hunger? When a friend suggested that I do something about the spiritual starvation in our city, I actually laughed. But I started a Bible class that has multiplied ten times during the past thirty-five years so that thousands of men and women have studied God’s Word for themselves.
There are so many needs in our cities but is there one need that God has brought to your attention? Describe to Him what you see and how impossible it would be for you to do anything at all to meet that need. Then be alert to what He may reveal to you further.
