You know, many are concerned about the atrophy and decline of churches. I get that. But the funny thing is, that I feel that there is a new spiritual hunger that is deeper than I have seen in my lifetime. It’s just that people don’t think they can find their answers in church.
The truth is that we need a Revival that sweeps through, across and Beyond traditional religion. This kind of never before experienced devotion to God is what we need. A Revival so deep and Powerful in the middle of True Believers lives that those around them cannot help but see that something special and Supernatural is going on.
And the deal is that though this may travel with us and should travel with us into church. It does not start there. It starts in the heart of the Savior Himself and spreads to us, as we identify with His passion and His desire and His Burning Love For Humanity.
When Jesus asked Peter did he love Him. Three times Christ linked His message to helping Peter see; that deep love for Him must and will translate into a Ministry to others. He declared to Peter. If you love me; feed My sheep. If you love Me; tend My Lambs. If we have a burning desire to experience more of Christ. Then we will discover His burning desire to reach more of His children in a deep and life transforming way.
Yes I would like to see churches grow. But I would like to see it happen because the people in them are absolutely in love with our Eternal Master. And are so full of His Holy Spirit, that they cannot hold it in and must have a place to bring people to get know Him better. When we are not worried about building the church but about blessing and worshiping our Saviour. Then whatever edifices or structures we use will be blessed and grow. Until then they are just dead and lifeless buildings.
God, I ask You to consume those that dare seek You earnestly, with Heavenly Holy Fire. God help people to see that there is a new work underway. That the hunger that people feel in their hearts is only a reflection of The Hunger that You feel to own more of us, in our hearts! And to use us as Your Ambassadors to reach others. God fill us with a holy zeal, for Your Holy Spirit of Love and Power.
