the ministry’s mission and the expectation the church has for its accomplishment in a safe and abuse-free manner.
Give me a man of God – one man, Whose faith is master of his mind,
And I will right all wrongs and bless the name of all mankind.
Give me a man of God—one man, Whose tongue is touched with heaven’s fire,
And I will flame the darkest hearts with high resolve and clean desire.
Give me a man of God– one man, One mighty prophet of the Lord,
And I will give you peace on earth, Bought with a prayer and not a sword.
Give me a man of God– one man, True to the vision that he sees,
And I will build your broken shrines and bring the nations to their knees.
“Thou wishest to know? It is because the eyes of the Most High have willed it so. He continually watches the good and the wicked, and as His most holy eyes have not found among sinners any smaller man, nor any more insufficient and sinful, therefore He has chosen me to accomplish the marvelous work which God hath undertaken; He chose me because He could find none more worthless, and he wished to confound the nobility and grandeur, the strength, the beauty and the learning of this world.”
Spirituality is not easy to define but its presence or absence can easily be discerned. It has been called the diffused fragrance which has been assimilated in the garden of the Lord. It is the power to change the atmosphere by one’s presence, the unconscious influence which makes Christ and spiritual things real to others.
