The Methodist Church is huge. It is a massive muscle in the community. When it flexes everyone notices, it has impact.
The time is coming soon when that muscle is going to do more than just flex itself. Watch out! It will have a radical impact on the community. It will bring revival.
But muscle cannot function on its own. It needs the other parts of the body. Church! Bring in the worshippers, the intercessors, the prophets, the evangelists, the preachers and the teachers! Work with those who have the gifts and are willing to work with you. Worship together, pray together, share your visions with each other, encourage one another, listen to one another, learn from each other and go fish together!
There’s going to be a massive catch and you need to be ready, to have the capacity for it. Every church will be needed. Every soul that comes in will need to be nurtured, to know how much I love them, to find the wisdom to live well, to deal with temptation, to grow in faith, to love one another, to be filled with my love and my power.
If you have a problem with another’s style or approach, look to me, not at them. I value each and every one of you. I value your heart, his sensitivity and her courage. I value your integrity, his creativity and her character. I value your faithfulness, his passion and her humour.
Look to man and you will simply have the earth. Look to me and I will bring heaven to earth.
