The Power of His Presence PDF Print

“The first well-spring of renewing action is prayer, which connects us with the spirit of Christ who is, ‘He who renews the face of the earth.’”  – Elena Guerra

 

Imagine the church united in prayer as the early followers of Jesus were on the day of Pentecost – one mind, one focus, one desire-to experience God.  To experience Him through seeking the powerful presence of His Holy Spirit.

 

Jesus’ first followers waited as instructed.  But in their waiting, they sought!  They were not disappointed.  Filled with God’s Spirit, they erupted upon an unsuspecting city upsetting their present world-order in the process.

 

Pentecost starts the unique experience of the world being affected not by God the Son in the flesh but by the Spirit of the Son in our flesh.  Ordinary men and women ripping away the status quo, doing the undo-able because they believe.

 

Is it over?  Was this concrete, felt power of God just somehow used to kick off the movement? . . . start the ball rolling, so-to-speak?  Or is it available here, today, in us?

 

Of course it’s available.  God is not diminished and every generation a completely new world is born that needs to experience Jesus.  The difference is this: we now become the people gathered in prayer-seeking!  We become the proclaimers of the Spirit’s power and His passion for the world.  We become the ones to upset this present world-order with Jesus’ message of complete love.

 

Imagine the church united in prayer with this one thought in mind!
