The task of world evangelism is beyond the strength, scope or ability of all but God. As we pondeer tonight, the facet of children and bringing them to Christ, there is no less an urgency and overwhelmingness to the task.
The secret of such undertakings is much like the wisdom Queen Elizabeth shared in the 17th century with Sir Walter Raleigh. As he was departing at the Queen's request to go on a long journey to the New World he asked, "But what of my London business, my Queen?" The reply was quick and telling. "When you do my business, The Queen will care for your business!"
As we go about the business of the Kingdom, no less than the King of the Universe stands at our side and says THE KING WILL CARE FOR YOUR BUSINESS. How does He do that today? Listen as I briefly sketch the Partnership we have with the Holy Spirit and the astounding benefits.
