Leah Case takes Harvest’s Virtue women through our series, “Relentless Grace” this week with session 12. In Romas chapter 10 she shares a message titled, “It Takes a Bunch of Ones,” where she outlines that we can’t logically argue anyone into salvation, much as we’d like to! We should be as persuasive as we can, but only the Holy Spirit can convince and convict.
- 1. Forget the past, not the people.
“Be humble or you’ll stumble.” —D.L. Moody
“When I first came to you … I didn’t use lofty words and impressive wisdom to tell you God’s secret plan. For I decided that while I was with you, I would forget everything except Jesus Christ, the One who was crucified … And my message and my preaching was very plain … I relied only on the power of the Holy Spirit, so you would not trust in human wisdom but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:1–2, 4–5)
- 2. God’s promise is never too good to be true.
“Faith does not eliminate questions, but faith knows where to take them.” —Elisabeth Elliott
- 3. God never gives up, and neither should we.
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead, He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:8-9)
Seasons pass and some prayers seem to get lost in the waiting. We may even forget and move on. But God listens. He doesn’t lose track of our tears and prayers.
