• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Faith in Himself

William Still was pastor of the Gilcomston South Church in Aberdeen Scotland.  He wrote the following which I think might have some relevance to our discussion of “faithfulness” and “fruitfulness”:

God’s faith is not in frail sinners whom he chooses, but in himself, and in his ability to keep them.  When he gives you a task to do that must be done thoroughly and wisely and well, he is not trusting your frailty, although you may think all depends on you.  He is trusting himself, and there is nothing he cannot do through you that he wants to do.”
