Love Example

An example of Love

Years ago in a rural, Scottish village, the pastor of a small church was asked to resign. The ruling board of his congregation had evaluated the fruit of his ministry and could find nothing that seemed significant. No baptisms had been held the previous year, no conversions had been recorded, and only one response to a sermon could even be remembered.

That single response had taken place on Sunday when the offering plate had been passed. A small boy had put the plate on the floor then stepped into it. When asked for an explanation, he had replied that since he had no money to give God, he wanted to give himself.

The small boy who had stepped in the offering plate . . . became a great pioneer missionary—statesman used of God to change the course of individual lives, tribes and nations in southern Africa. His name was Bobby Moffat. He was a man who overcame the smallness of his life by giving himself totally to God, keeping his
focus on Christ.

John 15:4-5
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
