The Remnant By Gary Gibbs

Do you like to read? If you do, you might be a writer, too.


The Crossing Life Church has many writers, one of whom has been a published author and has many amazing thoughts about the will of God and us being His remnant. This week, we hear from beloved member of the community, Gary Gibbs, as he shares his heart behind the book and a small excerpt:


“I truly believe that we are living in a time of Apostasy.  Apostasy – defection or revolt.  But the original definition of the world is uncovering or revealing.  I believe they must both occur at the same time. This is a time of God’s Revelation to us, to His Remnant.  A time of Spiritual Awakening.  Awakening to the Truth that EVERYTHING depends on His Will – on us – sacrificing our will, for His. It’s all in my book in the church library.  Here’s a little taste:


“Lord, lead us not into temptation.  The temptation of our own wills.  The temptation of what WE want, of what WE think we need, The temptation of what WE think we deserve.  The temptation of what WE think is right, what WE think is fair.  The temptation, Lord, of what WE think.  The temptation to lean to our own understanding and the temptation to turn to this world for our Hope, our Life, our Salvation.  Deliver us from this evil, the evil of our own wills, for Thine is the Kingdom.  Your Will is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory.  Help us, Lord, to be like an empty glove.  A glove that can do nothing on it’s own – but when it is filled with the Hand of God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.  And friends – as long as we try to fill that glove with our own hand, we leave no room for God. There is simply NOTHING more important than HIS WILL. Jesus is the manifested example of what God wants – “not my will, Father, but thine be done.”


If you would like to read more from Gary, you can find his book in the church library, and if you are not connected to the library yet and are wanting to read more in the new year, this is your sign.
