Thomas Hogben Quote

emptied.jpg“The common prayer-cry is, “Fill me and lift me up!” The Divine answer is very often: “Be emptied and go down!”

Effectual service demands seven things:-

a. Holiness of heart.

b. Righteousness of life.

c. Devotion to the Word.

d. Absolute obedience to the Holy Spirit.

e. Communion with God.

f. Power in prayer.

g. Passion for souls.

We cannot be in line with the Spirit for His work unless we are in line with His law of holiness of heart and life. With very many the first step in this lies in getting right with their fellow-men.”
