How the Spirit Filled My Life

The secret of Bertha Smith’s courage and effectiveness throughout a century-long life is that she learned how to die to self…This is the key to spiritual victory, to personal revival, and to effectiveness in ministry. Bertha Smith lived her life with spiritual courage and holy boldness because, like the apostle Paul, she knew that “to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Phil. 1:21).
