I want people to say this after every encounter with me: Everyone was gripped with great wonder and awe, and they praised God, exclaiming, “We have seen amazing things today!” (Luke 5:26)
Why do I think this should be something just in the past? Didn’t Jesus say…
I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in Me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in My name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask Me for anything in My name, and I will do it! (John 14:12-14)
Jesus continues in John 14 to talk about the help the Holy Spirit would bring us. And in Acts 1:8 Jesus tells us that the Holy Spirit is the source of power for being living witnesses.
Oh, how I want the Spirit’s presence!
To be filled.
To be changed.
To be fruitful.
To be a witness.
To bring glory to God!
Let it be: Everyone was gripped with great wonder and awe, and they praised God, exclaiming, “We have seen amazing things today!”
That’s my prayer.
