Charles Finney - Part 2
When Charles Finney
got saved he got a great desire to tell others about the great experience
he had with Christ. He knew that God wanted him to preach and that he
should start it immediately. He was professionally a Lawyer, but now
he lost all his desires even in his most passionate job of practicing
Law. He went and spoke about the love of Christ to every person he met.
He used very few words to speak but to whomever he spoke they were convicted
of their sins and they repented from their sins.
He was so passionate for Christ that even he did not feel hunger or
sleep and many days he went on preaching the Gospel without eating anything.
But soon he realized that if he proceeded without food and without sleep
soon he will be a mad man. Whenever he spoke to anybody from the word
of God, it struck in their heart as an arrow and they repented from
Then he went to Henderson where his parents lived. His father met him
at the gate and Charles asked him, "dad, you are an old man, all
your children are grown up and have left your house but no prayers are
ever heard in this house." In Charles own words, "father
dropped his head, and burst into tears, and replied, "I know it,
Charles; come in and pray yourself." Charles went inside the house
and prayed with his parents, they were greatly moved and soon they repented
from their sin and accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Charles
stayed there for 2-3 days and went to his neighborhood and told about
Jesus love to as many people as possible. He also started reaching
among youths of his church and many repented and one by one were converted
In his early days of ministry God taught him several things. Once a
person came to him and expressed his grief saying that his wife is so
much sick that she may not live though the night. He felt so much burden
to pray for that persons wife that he felt he will be almost crushed.
He immediately left his office and came to the meeting room in the Church
and started praying for that woman. He could not speak much words but
his heart was groaning with pain and burden for her. He stayed for much
time in the Church, but there was no improvement in his condition. He
did not feel the burden lifting up from his heart. He could only walk
in the meeting room with agony and pain. He thought whether by going
to office, may be he will get some relief so he went to his office but
still there was no relief. In this manner he came back to the meeting
room for the third time. At this time he could roll away his burdens
and lade them on God. Then he felt relieved. He felt great assurance
for that woman that she will not die and also that she will never die
in her sin, but will have eternal life.
He had great peace in his heart. Next morning when he went to his office
and the man came to his office. Charles asked him about his wifes
condition. He smiled and said, "she is alright and better than
other days." Charles assured him that his wife will not die because
of this sickness and also will not die in her sins. The woman recovered
completely and soon after that she accepted Jesus as her personal Lord
and Savior. And she found the blessed hope of eternal life that she
will never die but live forever.
