Studd: the arms for doing battle

Saturday, October 14, 2017
    [Peter:] You know what has happened throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached—how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.
    —Acts 10:37-38 (NIV)
    When in hand-to-hand conflict with the world and the devil, neat little Biblical confectionery is like shooting lions with a pea-shooter; one needs a man who will let go and deliver blows right and left as hard as he can hit, in the power of the Holy Ghost... Nothing but forked-lightning Christians will count.
    ... C. T. Studd (1860-1931), quoted in C. T. Studd—Cricketer and Pioneer [1933], Norman P. Grubb, World-Wide Revival Prayer Movement, 1947, p. 163 (see the book)
    See also Acts 10:37-38; Mic. 3:8; Zech. 4:6; Luke 10:18-20; Acts 1:8; Jude 1:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, energize Your people to carry out Your will.
