Wisdom From Vance Havner 8

Nobody in pulpit or pew needs a revival more than a bitter-spirited fundamentalist with his dispensations right and his disposition wrong.

On Revelation 3:20b: . . . I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Jesus comes in as the Guest. He abides as the Host. First He sups with us, then we with Him. At Cana He was the Guest. Then the wine gave out and He became the Host. At Emmaus He entered the disciple*s home as a Guest. Soon He broke bread and became their Host. It is true that we open our hearts to Him when we are saved. But from then on He does not sit at our table, we sit at His. He prepares a table for us even in the presence of our enemies, and like lame Mephibosheth we eat, crippled as we are, at the King*s table and partake of His bounty.

Sometimes we hear that the church today is living the Book of Numbers. Certainly some are too busy counting nickels and noses. It has been said *It is time to stop counting numbers and begin making numbers count.* But there is a place for statistics and Acts abounds in numbers and additions. The difference is, then they were a result but today they are a goal. When we try to reach goals with wrong methods we add from without but we do not grow from within.

Salvation is not a cafeteria line where we can take the Saviourhood of Christ and pass up His Lordship.
