Scripture Reading:    Ephesians 5:18-20.  

Memory verse for the week:   Isaiah 30: 21

Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left. (NKJV)

Continued from yesterday…The story of Helen Ewan, a young woman filled with the Holy Spirit!

 I was talking one day with two university professors in London City. We were talking about dynamic Christianity, when one of them suddenly said, “Brother Stewart, I want to tell you a story.” And he told me that in Glasgow University there was a remarkable young lady, who, wherever she went on that campus, left a fragrance of Christ behind her.

For example, if the students were telling dirty stories, someone would say, “Shhh! – Helen is coming – quiet.” And then she passed by and unconsciously left the power behind her. The university professor told me how in their prayer meetings they could always tell when this young lady entered the room. She did not even need to take part in the prayers. The moment she entered the room the whole of the meeting was revolutionized by the mighty power of God.

 “And,” said that professor, “she led many of those students to Jesus Christ.” She was the greatest power for God that he ever knew in his life.

 I said, “Sir, that could only be one person. That was Helen Ewan.” He said that was the name of the young I have been out on the streets of Glasgow at midnight, in the awful cold winter night, giving out my tracts and doing personal soul winning, and as I have been going home, I have seen Helen Ewan with her arms around a poor, drunken harlot, and telling her of Jesus and His love.

Teens, she led a great multitude to Jesus Christ. And when I went many years later to the place of her burial, one of the grave diggers said, “Preacher, I’ll never forget when that young lady was buried here. When I was burying that body, I felt the presence of God all over this place.”

One night we were all having a special evening together, young people rejoicing in the Lord, and having a good time, when my wife asked, “Is that Helen Ewan’s photograph on the mantelpiece?”

Suddenly there was a dead silence, and she asked, “Jim, have I said anything wrong?” All the laughing ceased, and one by one, without anybody saying a word, we dropped down on our knees and began to pray. Think of it, years after she had gone home to Heaven, her name was so powerful. Oh, friends, I believe that this spiritual life is for every child of God!


PRAYER POINT:     Fill me with your Spirit, oh God, in the name of Jesus.
