The Eye Opener

Monday, Feb. 6, 2017

We alcoholics were saved from unnumbered deaths in our drinking days and preserved for a purpose that only we could accomplish. God has His way of doing things and He selects people to be the instrumentality through which He works. If you fail to fulfill your appointed function, then just that much of God’s work goes undone until He finds another instrument through which to work. You were not dragged from the gutter so that you might be able to enter your home and lounge before an open fire in ease. God saved you because He had work for you to do. Go do it.
