The late Bob Jones told this story about himself:
It seems that in the 1980’s the Lord told Bob Jones and Paul Cain ahead of time about Jimmy Swaggart’s visits with a prostitute. When the story broke in all the media outlets, Bob Jones reacted by rejoicing with all of his Christian friends. They were happy that Swaggart was brought down and his sin exposed for all to see.
Paul Cain reacted to the same media stories by weeping and fasting and praying before the Lord for Jimmy Swaggart and the Body of Christ.
Bob Jones used this story to reveal the wrong and the godly way of responding to the Lord’s shaking of His people and His church.
Today, I prayed:
Lord, I pray for us American believers to love our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ as You love them, even in their ugliest hours, so that all will know we are Your disciples by our love for one another. (Based on John 13:35)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.
