God has a job for each of us to do. Do you believe that? Jesus said that the Father would give the Holy Spirit to those who ask. Do you feel that you need more power from the Holy Spirit? God wants to give you that power and He wants to fill you, and then refill you!
Have you ever tried to accomplish even the simplest tasks during a power outage? Everywhere you go inside your home, you instinctively reach for that light switch. If you can’t see, you can’t do much.
Pastor Greg Laurie points out that power is just as necessary in accomplishing the work that God wants us to do. And he also explains why he believes that the work has never been more necessary.
There have many descriptions over the years of what revival means. One is that ‘it’s a community saturated with God’. Another? ‘Revival is an invasion from heaven.’ Richard Owen Roberts wrote that ‘revival is an extraordinary movement of the holy spirit producing extraordinary results.’
In the book of Acts, we read about the Holy Spirit being poured out on the church. It’s a very important principle. It is the spirit of God, working through the word of God, in the hearts of the people of God.
The people that Jesus used to change His world were very ordinary. They were uneducated, had calloused hands and few social graces. Many of them were outcasts, but in a relatively short time, they changed the world.
