As I walk through the streets of Vienna, Austria, I am in awe of the beautiful churches. Yet sadly, when I go inside, they are empty, except for a few tourists taking pictures. The predominant beliefs noticeably expressed are atheism and the New Age. At the same time on this vacation, I am reading through the book of Acts. I am reminded that Paul traveled from city to city boldly preaching the gospel to those who thought he was either mad or blasphemous or both!
Paul was completely transformed one day when He encountered the blinding Presence of the Lord. After that, He preached the death and resurrection of Christ the Messiah. He was a changed man who became a radical ambassador for our Lord.
We need to cry out to God to transform us by His great power so we will boldly proclaim the gospel in our lost communities. Christ will surely return. Are you prepared?
We are His Bride who is to be preparing for our Bridegroom’s return. Living set apart by a holy life, representing our Lord, let His truth be told: our Lord God is to be worshiped and our lives are to be surrendered to Him. May God use us to bring revival!
“He knows we are his since he has also stamped his seal of love over our hearts and has given us the Holy Spirit like an engagement ring is given to a bride - a down payment of the blessings to come!” 2 Corinthians 1:22
