Adrian Rogers, again! This great Man of GOD left such a full legacy of great scriptural truth. I am moved and convicted by each one. I do not do enough for My LORD JESUS CHRIST and here is yesterday’s thought from Dr. Rogers as to why:
Humbly Grateful, Not Grumbly Hateful
“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations.” – James 1:2
Sometimes we have to admit that it’s hard to “count it all joy.” Sometimes we complain and rather than being humbly grateful, we become grumbly hateful.
Oh, how I wish that, beginning today, we would emulate the faith of the saints that have gone before us—saints like Fannie Crosby, the great hymn writer.
For most of her life Fannie Crosby was blind, and yet, at the tender age of eight, Fannie wrote:
“Oh! What a happy soul am I, although I cannot see,
I am resolved that, in this world, contented I will be.
How many blessings I enjoy, that other people don’t.
To weep and sigh because I’m blind, I cannot and I won’t.”
And do you know what? …. She didn’t.
- How can you apply this truth to your life today?\
- How can you share this truth with someone else?
Missed opportunities are reasons to be more alert to just sharing the JOY of JESUS, donchaknow. By the way, Fannie Crosby wrote another powerful TRUTH HYMN. You know it as “Amazing Grace”. What a Testimony!!
