Philip said, “Master, show us the Father …”(John 14:8)
The story goes that Jesus walks past a Church and sees a man sitting on the steps outside with his head in his hands and crying. “What’s wrong?” Says Jesus. “They won’t let me in.” replies the man. “I totally understand,” says Jesus sighing as he sat down alongside him, “I’ve been trying to get into this place for many years, but they won’t let me in either!”
How many times have our desperate needs cried out for the release of Glory rather than nice sofas, frothy coffee and powerless programmes?
Wouldn’t we rather if our church attendance was based upon the supernatural Joy of meeting with GOD as He manifests Himself in Jesus. Watching expectantly as He speaks to us by His Holy Spirit, encouraging us, comforting us, and edifying us as He ministers to our very needs?
GOD responds to the cries and needs of His people. Even under intense persecution, the Church in Iran is growing. Likewise, the Church in China is growing. The Church is even growing in North Korea! In fact, His Power and Glory manifests ‘to’ His People and ‘in’ His People wherever He is called upon in faith.
Lord, open our eyes to how You want to minister your redeeming love in 'Your' churches.
