The World Has Yet to See

In spring of 1867, a young American shoe salesman came to Bristol and one day was invited to a prayer meeting in a private home.

During the meeting, the minister, Henry Varley stood up and spoke. He said one memorable thing in that prayer meeting: “The world has yet to see what God can do with one man wholly committed to him.” 

That young American walked out of that prayer meeting an hour later – with these words etched on his mind. They gave him no peace and he resolved to be such a man.

No one remembers Henry Varley – but that young American was D.L.Moody – who went on to become the “Billy Graham” of the 19th Century.

Thousands came to Christ through his ministry his day.

God wants to use you for his glory, but he needs a holy vessel to use.

Are willing to be that holy vessel used for him?

The world has yet to see what God can do with a man totally committed to him. 

Isaiah 6:1-8  In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple.  2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.  3 And one called out to another and said, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory.”  4 And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke.  5 Then I said, “Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.”  6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs.  7 He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven.”  8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
