We are not in a movement. According to Hymns, #268, we are channels for God's Spirit to flow through us into others. If we visit the new ones in their homes every week, what is deposited into them will be with them for the rest of their lives. Even if we answer their questions with a few simple sentences, our answer will remain in the deepest part of their being. They may ask a simple question about dealing with their parents; if we are weighty, even a simple response will give them a deep impression. Our response will change their human life. This is what we must give people when we contact them through door-knocking. We must be prepared to do this.
How I praise Thee, precious Savior
- How I praise Thee, precious Savior,
That Thy love laid hold of me;
Thou hast saved and cleansed and filled me,
That I might Thy channel be.
- Channels only, blessed Master,
But with all Thy wondrous grace,
Flowing through us, Thou canst use us
Every hour in every place.
To the thirsty hearts around;
To tell out Thy full salvation,
All Thy loving message sound.
A clean vessel in Thine hand;
With no strength but as Thou givest
Graciously with each command.
Setting free from self and sin;
Thou hast bought me to possess me,
In Thy fulness, Lord, come in.
Hearts that full surrender know;
That the streams of living water
From our inner man may flow.
