Beth Moore: ‘Don’t Stop Serving the Lord’
Beth Moore is a speaker, a bestselling author and the founder of Living Proof Ministries. In her memoir, “All My Knotted-Up Life” (released Feb. 21), Moore reveals how God has been faithful to her throughout her life, including her tumultuous childhood and various trials she has faced as an adult. Among other experiences, the memoir recounts Moore’s upbringing, which included being sexually abused by her father, as well as her history with the Southern Baptist Convention.
“I’m heading back to my house after tending to my vines and tending to my garden, and the sun’s going down on this gorgeous Lord’s Day,” Moore said in her Sunday video, “and I just feel so moved in my spirit to say to somebody this evening, ‘Don’t stop serving the Lord.’”
“I know that there are lots of frustrations and discouragements and a lot going on in some of our churches,” she continued, “but I’m going to tell you something. You may need to go somewhere else and do something different in service to the Lord, but don’t, don’t stop, don’t quit. We’re gonna get one glimpse of his face and all we’re going to be able to say is, ‘You are so worthy. Worthy are you Lord.’”
In an Instagram post of a cluster of grapes also shared on Sunday, Moore once more encouraged her followers to persevere. “If you don’t think your vinedresser notices when you produce some fruit after a hard season, think again,” she said. “He knows the winter you’ve had. Come on out. Risk it again. Don’t compare yourself to your fellow branches. Just bask in the light and living water and grow, baby, grow. It is to your Father’s glory that you bear much fruit and show yourself to be Christ’s disciple.”
People thanked Moore in the comments on her tweet. “I needed to hear this today,” said one. “Thank you for your encouragement.”
