September 29, 2013 “Engage … In the Power of the Holy Spirit”


We’ve been hearing from the words of our Savior the urgent call to engage in on-mission living, and next weekend we’ll put it into practice as we spread out all over the city to be salt and light. Then next Sunday we will all gather in one worship service at 11:00am to celebrate the opportunities the Lord has given us to engage. Some of those projects have already taken place, but most of them will happen in the coming week, so please pray for God to empower us for effective service.

I’ll ask you also to pray for a group of 175 pastors who will gather here in the Metroplex tomorrow and Tuesday for a time of fervent prayer that God would move in our churches in such a way as to spark a revival and spiritual awakening in our land. We desperately need this, and as the Lord brings it to your mind please pray.

In many ways we’re in the same predicament as Jesus’ disciples just after the resurrection of Jesus. We read about it Luke 24:36-49. Turn there please. Just after His resurrection Jesus appeared to His disciples to deal with the issue of their lack of power. Read text.
