We would love for you to join us at Faith and Friends Friday here on Creation Conversations. We are only a week into our new book club featuring Great For God by David Shibley.
We also have a HUGE giveaway going on over in our group for 5 great books from Master Books! You can join us and enter to win HERE.
This week we have been reading chapters 2 and 3. Chapter 2 tells the story of William R (Bill) Bright. Bill is the founder of Campus Crusaders. Through his determination and commitment, his ministry reached 191 nations. He also wrote over 100 books that were translated in multiple languages. His one book "Do You Know the Four Spiritual Laws?" has reached over 2.5 billion people. How amazing that one man had the influence to reach that many people.
This is a great example of how God can use just one person. I think so many times we wonder how much we really matter? After all we are only one little person. That is just a thought the enemy would like to use against us to hold us back from being Great for God! If he can use Bill Bright to do all of that, he can use you too.
Chapter 3 tells the story of William Carey. He is another great example of someone who didn't give up. Just because there may be setbacks in our lives, doesn't give us the excuse to give up and walk away. I am sure it was tempting after William's manuscripts were destroyed in a fire. Many would give up after that, thinking the road would be too difficult. Instead of letting that fire defeat him, he continued forward. Because he didn't give up, William was able to translate the Bible into 3 different languages. He was influencial in India, changing the course for modern India.
Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God. ~ William Carey
