What a role model for us all. My prayer is that you will take time to study his life. Luis Palau brought much fruit to the world! How about you and me? What are we doing for the Kingdom of God? Are you bearing fruit for the Kingdom? Luke 13:9
If it bears fruit next year, fine. But if not, you can cut it down.’
From Dr. Jim Dension:
Choosing the faith that sustains us
International evangelist Luis Palau died yesterday. As I wrote recently, he was one of the most joyful, vibrant, courageous Christians I have ever known. He once encouraged us: “Don’t pray for an easier life. Pray instead to be a stronger man or woman of God.”
Luis knew that it is not the strength of our faith but the object of our faith that counts. We can have faith in spoiled food and become sick after eating it. We can have faith in wrong directions and get lost as a result.
Here’s a fact: Whether another pandemic strikes or not, God is still God. Whether he answers our prayers for healing in this world or the next, he is still Lord. The faith that sustains us in the hardest places is faith in a sovereign King (Psalm 22:28) who is love (1 John 4:8). Circumstances and consequences cannot change his character (Malachi 3:6).
And all of our sovereign Lord there is, is in this moment.
How fully would he say you are depending on him today?
