The world has yet to see what God can do with and …

The world has yet to see what God can do with and for and through and in and by the man who is fully and wholly consecrated to Him. I will try my utmost to be that man. -D.L. Moody

    Hi
    I was looking for this quote you used and knew it wasn’t from Moody, but actually given to him. Here is the site I found for that info.

    respectfully

      The quote is clearly and appropriately ascribed to Moody as he chose it, as the words that best inspiried his purpose for God. He also made it famous by speaking it so many times. While nothing we say is original, nor the ideas themselves, we often become known for what we say and Moody clearly owns this quote. It is neither wrong to say where he got it from, but Henry Varley did not choose it as his life’s purpose, so it would be inappropriate to ascribe it to him. To mention the source of inspiration is much appreciated and worth mentioning. However the quote quite legitimately belongs to Moody.

      Thanks

    Nothing more ennobles a man who with meekness and humility submits all of his talents, skills as well as his physical and mental abilities, strength and will… all to God.
    Upon reflection of this truth one may conclude that God by His grace enables and empowers this kind of individual through the power of the Holy Spirit.
    “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21 (NKJV)

    I am doing some reading for a theology class I am taking on Christology and being encouraged to reflect on the dual truth that Jesus is both very God and very man. In deference to D.L. Moody, I would suggest that based on the affirmation of the Council of Chalcedon, in the person of Jesus Christ, “the world [has already seen] what God can do with and for and through and in and by the man who is fully and wholly consecrated to Him”. May God be glorified as His Spirit works in our lives, but let us always remember that God is most glorified when we give the highest honor to His dear Son Jesus Christ.
