On March 14, 2014 Larry Ferguson, the founder of CES, finished the race of life and went to be with the Lord. Larry had a great impact in my life, inspiring me in many ways to press on for the cause of Christ Jesus. So for this week’s blog I decided to share Larry’s devotional thought from August 31, 2007.
“In my devotion time today (2 Kings 9 ff) the overwhelming lesson is from God’s relationship with the Kings through the prophets. We know of and are very grateful today for God’s mercy and grace through Jesus. But even so we still, in many ways, reap what we sew. The “good kings” were blessed by God and the “bad kings” received His punishment.
“As church leaders we need His blessing and direction as much or even more than other Christians. We need to learn to trust Him COMPLETELY. We need to diligently seek His face. His direction and leadership. Even though faith is a gift from God. (“He gives to every man a measure of faith.”} We need to develop a strong faith that sees God working in our everyday life.
“I know you, like me, want to hear our Father’s “well done good and faithful servant.” and bear much fruit.”
Together, seeking to bear much fruit for our Master,
I am certain that Larry has heard those words he longed to hear. I am so very grateful for the things he shared that are still inspiring people to as Paul put it “press on until the day of Christ Jesus”.
