If you’re looking for a nice quiet God who won’t disrupt your life, forget about Jesus! When He comes, He’ll stir up your business… your marriage… your finances… because He’s a functioning, moving, teaching, touching, powerful God, who won’t sit in the corner like an ornament!
In Scripture, people opened their homes for Jesus to come and preach. Maybe they thought, “We’ll put out a few extra chairs… it’ll be nice to hear a good sermon… we could use some prayer.” Are you kidding? When word got out, the people came from everywhere! Talk about the power of advertising! He filled the house without a TV ministry, a tape, a brochure or a mailing list!
It got so crazy that four men carrying a sick friend on a stretcher couldn’t get in, so they raised the roof and lowered him down to Jesus. That’s what we need in the church today – people who know how to ‘raise the roof’ with their prayers, their praises and their preaching, and bring down the power of God.
Get ready: when you let Jesus into any area of your life, He’ll ask you to give what you can’t give, do what you can’t do and be what you can’t be. He’ll rearrangeeverything. That’s because you’ve been… in the same place… the same rut… giving the same testimony… for too long!
Today God wants to take you out of your comfort zone. He wants to stretch you by calling you to do more than you’ve ever done before. Are you ready to say “yes?”
