The “Awakening” Conference at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa in Southern California has come and gone yesterday, Saturday11October2008, but one thing remains—the word of God for Peter shared with us:

 

1 Peter 1

{22} Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart,

{23} having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,

{24} because

“All flesh is as grass,

And all the glory of man as the

  flower of the grass.

The grass withers,

And its flower falls away,

{25} But the word of the LORD

  endures forever.”

Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.

 

Hebrews 11

{6} But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

 

2 Timothy 1

{7} For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

 

2 Timothy 2

{4} No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.

 

The Bible is rich beyond measure and many treats to share—I pray we would be as the Acts 17 church, for instance:

 

Acts 17

{11} These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

 

Praise God for being the author and finisher of our faith for we are yet under construction and very much in need of our Savior always…

 

There is satisfaction in dwelling in His house forever and as Scott Cunningham would sing, “…to hear You say, well done.”  Praise the LORD for using His faithful servants in setting up the event.  We had music in the morning and afternoon by The House and Scott Cunningham, respectively.  Featured speakers were Pastor Brian Brodersen, Mark Cahill, Ray Comfort, Emeal (E.Z.) Zwayne, and Charlie Campbell.  Seriously, you should have been there! However, no worries for there are media modes [The Chapel Store at 714-540-2941] and God’s timing. 

 

We do have a tremendous and blessed responsibility as believers in Jesus Christ because knowing Him ought to give us the intense desire to share Him.  He is our Messiah, Redeemer and Prince of Peace.  He is committed to help us and see us into the light in this dark and miserable world.  There is hope in the name of Jesus! 

 

Being that we may personally know or are aware of people who are lost, I pray for the continual burning desire to reach out and touch people as His hands and feet for the clock is ticking and these are the last days…

 

There are wake up calls all around us and I pray we would not push the snooze button as one of the speakers has wisely stated for today is the day of salvation and no one is promised the next breath! IF we were to die today as believer in Jesus Christ, I perceive we would all find ourselves in the presence of our heavenly Father, but for the rest, do we care enough to do something so that they too will join us?   

 

So, dear one, I pray we would not give up, but keep pressing on as Paul has exhorted us in the ultimate mission (keeping in mind, “…If God is for us, who can be against us?”—Romans 8:31 and “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”—Romans 8:1):

 

Matthew 28

{18} And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

{19} Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

{20} teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Amen.

 

I pray we would desire to serve in the love of Christ “’Til the whole world hears” because “…life is what I (we) do with Your time.”
