Scriptures: Acts 4:31-33
The church needs to be on fire! We have the wood: the cross of Christ! We have the lamb: Jesus the lamb of God. But the question remains: where is the fire? Currently "it takes on average 40 believers 1 year to win 1 person to Christ." Why is this ratio so low? Lack of fire!
In Acts 4 we have an example of a church on fire: they were endued with God's power and they would not accept any substitutes. They prayed: because nothing is born without travail. The preachers could preach with unexplained liberty. There was no judgment amongst the believers. The multitude of believers were of one heart and one soul: unity overcame division.
What happens when a church gets on fire: the Bible says at least 8,000 souls were saved and God added to the church daily! The worship service is inspiring and uplifting! Complaining is replaced with prayer. Preachers can preach with great power and God's power is demonstrated. Great grace is upon all.
Are you ready to set the church on fire with passion for the Kingdom of Christ?
