Stella Bean - North Hatley, Quebec, Canada Convention - Saturday Evening, July 4, 1936

Invitations:  Matthew 11, "Come unto me all ye that labour and I will give you rest."  Isaiah, "Come, let us reason together."  God gives us an invitation to come. 

Why has God an interest in our lives?  2 Samuel 14:14, God loves to reason it out with us.  We must all stand before the judgment seat.  We won’t be able to pass with the crowd.  Every promise has a condition.  If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the fat of the land, but if ye be rebellious, ye shall be devoured.  We must be willing to suffer if we expect to get the good things.
