The Winsome Saints

Much of Christianity overlooks the fact that if we are led by the Spirit of God and if we show forth the love of God this world needs, we become the "winsome saints." The strange and wonderful thing about it is that truly winsome and loving saints do not even know about their attractiveness. The great saints of the past did not know they were great saints. If someone had told them, they would not have believed it; but those around then knew that Jesus was living His life in them. I think we join the winsome saints when God's purposes in Christ become clear to us. We join them when we begin to worship God because He is who He is! Brethren, God is not a charity case—He is not some frustrated foreman who cannot find enough help. Let us remember that God has never actually needed any of us—not one! But we pretend that He does and we make a big thing of it when someone agrees "to work for the Lord." God is trying to call us back to that for which He created us—to worship and to enjoy Him forever!

Verse

Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Christ Jesus Philippians 1:11

Thought

Let us remember that God has never actually needed any of us–not one!

Prayer

Lord, make me mindful of the things you have set out for me to do that will make me a "winsome saint" in your eyes.
