Seeking bigger-than-life believers

    God is no longer seeking mega churches, but mega people. Not the superheroes of the comics, but bigger-than-life believers.
    Think of the number of warm bodies sitting in mega church cathedrals, or live-streaming the services, satisfied to be a part, but rarely reaching beyond those walls. Those who love to lap up the worship and the well-spoken word from the platform, but enter their workplace silent, terrified of how they might be received in this age of persecution.
    Now imagine those same individuals getting out of their pews and comfort zones to walk in the full authority of the Holy Spirit.
    Imagine people willing to give their lives to follow in His footsteps declaring Luke 4:18-19: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
    And John 14:12: “I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father.”
    People like the disciples with the courage to face dragons and touch others in the name of Jesus. Not leaving the work to someone “more qualified,” but catching the vision of what God is seeking in this time — the closing of the age.
    Think of it, millions marching into the workplace to bring life where there is death.
    Healing, raising the dead, delivering from demons, drawing multitudes into the Kingdom, truly preparing the way for the coming of the Lord.
    The time has come. The days of hiding in our enclaves gone. Picture the swords of God’s Spirit wielded — no longer curtailed by fear, but so full of the love of Jesus nothing can stop their might.
