Of No Reputation.

When I first came to the Lord, I found out that I was a servant of God. And I was happy to be that. Then I found out that I was a son. I was ecstatic. The bible says that a son is the same as a servant until he grows up.(Gal. 4:1). Unfortunately, most people look for a church that has a reputation to go to. People look for a preacher that can speak well. Charles Finney, a preacher who lead a revival in the late 1800s, read his prepared sermons. 1000s of people came to the altar crying and begging God to save them. He made himself of no reputation. All God wants us to do is take the first step in faith and let Him do the rest. In this world of self promotion, where does that leave you? Jesus came as a man of no reputation and was obedient to God, even until death. (Phil.2:7-9). Jesus is our example. Once you die to self, God can use you to accomplish His will on this earth. The world is watching to see what you are going to do. So what is your next step? (Gal.2:20).
