1 Corinthians 2:4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power,
<1 Corinthians 4:20>
New Living Translation (©2007)
For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power.
Powerless Christianity relies on performance!
Performance is just a platform for the power to manifest. It is the power of the holy spirit that brings revival. It is the anointing that does wonders, if we could call it that.
While creativity, performance and excellence is all part of who we are , it cannot substitute or equal the power of His presence upon us. One of the biggest challenges we have now is , instead of everything we do just being mediums for the power to manifest, it has become methods to invite the power and we fail miserably.
The good news is, He has invited us to freely walk in this realm of His power. We owe it to everyone around us to have encounters with God that will change our lives and ministry or even volunteering work.
How is it that, the lives and ministries of people like Heidi baker, John G Lake, Charles Finney among others changed unbelievably after their encounters with God that cannot be explained? It wasn’t better sermons or bigger stages. We need these on going encounters desperately.
Let Christian life begin from the secret place.
