Faithful To Himself

anecdotal stories

Elisha said, “As surely as the LORD Almighty lives, whom I serve, if I did not have respect for the presence of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not pay any attention to you.” – 2 Kings 3:14.

My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. – 1 John 2:1.

Holy Spirit – He’s Always At Our Side

In 1951, Representative Richard Bolling of Missouri proposed a dam for his district but saw it defeated in committee. He brought it up before the entire House, knowing he lacked enough votes for its passage. But Bolling had befriended Sam Rayburn, Speaker of the House. When Bolling rose to present his cause, Sam Rayburn, who had sat down beside him beforehand, rose to stand at his side. Rayburn said nothing at all. He didn’t have to. By simply standing with the Representative from Missouri, Rayburn meant he wanted the bill passed—and it was.

In whom, or in what, will we have ultimate confidence? Our mortality forces the choice upon us: we need someone to stand by us and for us. We must choose carefully, for we will live with the results forever! Who is better qualified to be that one than Jesus Christ?
