“And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.” (Eph. 4:30)
In the mid-1980’s, we attended a particularly anointed worship service.
Perceiving the drawing of God’s Spirit, Dr. Finn interrupted the music to give an altar call. Several people came forward to receive salvation.
(This was clearly a work of the Holy Ghost, since no one comes to Christ without being drawn by the Spirit. (John 6:44))
Still, some religious bully challenged the pastor after service. It was tradition to give the altar call after the preaching. To their religious mind, it was more important to stick to a familiar order-of-service, than to allow the working of God’s Spirit in drawing the souls of men to the foot of the cross!
“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” (John 3:17 )
