  1. That was powerful and I loved it and sharing it on my fb page. Thank you so much. I hope you don'tmind my crediting you with writing it.

  2. William, my favorite devotional book is the Bible as well and I enjoy reading your post as I find it each time quite inspiring and encouraging. Thank you.

  3. Pastor William thank you so much as l with many others confirm the gift of teaching and preaching in you. Your post reminded of the time my uncle used to challenge me about the validity of the Bible every time he visited us and on certain of the Seventh-day Adventist doctrines. Indeed it was exasperating especially as apparently he refused to accept the simplest most direct passages. Many years later after l had moved away l learned to my surprise that his daughter my cousin had been baptised as a Seventh-day Adventist. Even though she was in the background and sometimes not even in the room she had overheard many of the discussions and had been convicted. My uncle had never openly confessed faith in JESUS as far as l know. But GOD’s words as He declared in Isaiah certainly did not return to Him in vain.

  4. Powerful message, thank you Pastor William.

    We are told over and over in Scripture that we WILL suffer insults and rejection, like Jesus, for not joining in on jockeying to be #1 (Phil. 1:29; 3:10; Matt. 10:25; Matt. 5:11; 1 Thess. 3:3-4)...but I'm always "surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon me to test me, as though something strange were happening to me" (1 Pet. 4:12). Thank you for reminding us that the work of Christ is based on being insulted. The Cross was all about showcasing God's love against the backdrop of man's fickle character...those who shouted "hosannas" then shouted "crucify him". The Cross was about light shining brightest in the darkness. Jesus knew prophecies that stated that He would be insulted and would suffer...and that He would take it all on gracefully (Ps.22:7; Is.53:3,7). Just like we have God's Word telling us to expect this....and asking us to endure insults to win the scoffers. God has promised that He will help us to endure and will finish the good work He has begun within us (Phil.1:6).

    Lord Jesus, I need help with having a servant's heart. Please clear out the selfish parts of me. Help me to endure suffering patiently for Your glory...that others will see the changes in my character and I can testify that it is only because You are alive and living in me.
