Ray Comfort continues his exhortation on Initiative, today speaking of his efforts to write a book that ended up becoming a best-seller, and later even turned into a movie! God also supplied the needs for a circulation ministry that would eventually become Living Waters. Before he became a Christian, Ray would never have thought to do many of the things he has done for the sake of the gospel, and that is because when he was born again God gave him a new heart. As a new creature in Christ, Ray’s desires are now God’s desires. Why does Ray have a desire to reach the lost? Because that is God’s desire!
Some people are so afraid of messing up that they don’t start anything. Ray has started many projects, books, and tracts that he hasn’t finished. There have been many times where Ray has “walked on water” and sunk and had to call out to Jesus to raise him up. But as he delights himself in the Lord, he can trust that God will give him the desires of his heart, which are God’s own desires.
