Good Morning! There are many things on my heart today, but I will try to stay to the point and keep it somewhat short. In my daily Bible reading I have just finished the fourth gospel with Jesus ascending into heaven. For those who are not believers in Jesus, life gets back to normal and the routine of daily living plods on. I sometimes feel like that with what we are going thru these days. Jesus understood that and gives the believers very specific instructions.
Our lesson is taken from Acts. [Act 1:8 NLT] 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere--in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." I believe the church should be in a revival state of mind…not for other people but for we as believers. I have a shop filled with wonderful power tools. Every time I use one, I am thankful for the power it has to accomplish the task I ask of it to perform. When the power is there….good things happen. Unfortunately, the power will get weaker because the battery gets low or the cord becomes unplugged (usually right in the middle of the project). And I know that I have to recharge or plug in the cord. Our batteries are pretty much the same. When we evaluate our power charge, we will probably see that it has gotten weak and needs recharging. I believe that we should be at the alter seeking or an old word, tarring, for the infilling of the Holy Spirit…even if in the past we were filled with the Spirit. If we want revival, let’s not wait for pastor to preach the perfect sermon. Let’s receive the power Jesus is talking about and receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us and we will be witnesses in Port Angeles, Sequim, Forks or wherever you are. Fill the altars with believers seeking the power of the Holy Spirit and you won’t be able to stop the revival from happening! A famous phrase…You Can Do It!!!
