Re: When did we stop believing God for souls and started believing Him for stuff?
I don't know the complete answer to your question Dani. But I do think part of it may be in hearing God. How can one believe if he has not heard? If God says "I want to save this man, go see him and pray for him" then can we not believe?
"May the Lamb that was slain receive the just reward for His sufferings." A quote by Moravian missionary that sold himself (along with a friend) into slavery to reach those that the slave owner prevented from hearing the gospel.
May I live for Him and not for me.
