The Main Thing

It begins with a spark

During the 1800’s, the Billy Graham of that day was a man by the name of Dwight L. Moody. God used D.L. Moody in a powerful way both in America and in England.

 It has been said that Dwight L. Moody took two continents and shook them both for God.

 Once, when an evangelistic campaign was being planned in England, an elderly pastor was reported to have protested, “Why do we need this ‘Mr. Moody’? He’s uneducated, inexperienced, etc. Who does he think he is anyway? Does he think he has a monopoly on the Holy Spirit?” A younger, wiser pastor rose and responded, “No, but the Holy Spirit has a monopoly on Mr. Moody.”

 The same could be said of the early Christians of the book of Acts.

 Under the power and control of the Holy Spirit, they turned the world “upside down for Christ” (Acts 17:6). What could God do with us today if we were filled with the Holy Spirit as well?
