Jesus, Me, and the Kitchen Table

Now This is Awesome!

on June 23, 2014

Richard (my husband) an I were talking last night about a church service we’d been to a few hours earlier. The worship was so good. And so I made a FB post about it.  A lot of us do that.  We go to our church and then post something like, “Awesome Word today by (insert your pastor’s name) at (insert your church name).  My comment was not so much about the people doing the worship as much as the experience I had with the Lord.  I really entered into the presence of the Lord during that service and it was about Him. 

In the 1990’s there was a major move of God in Pensacola, FL known as the Brownsville Revival.  Over a period of 5 years hundreds of thousands of people flooded Brownsville Assembly of God night after night.  We were blessed to be a part of it for a year when we lived in Pensacola. The worship was amazing, the preaching was anointed and the altars were flooded each night with sinners coming to Jesus.  People were healed. Addictions were broken.  It was true revival.  

In 1997 SPIN Magazine, a secular magazine, came to report on the revival.  The headline of they wrote following their visit was, “AWESOME GOD”  

This is what happens when God shows up.  The attention is not on man.  This is quite a contrast to so many today who focus on the pastor or the worship team and post about them.  I know people mean well, and I’m not condemning anyone.  But we need to get our eyes on Jesus and off man.  Man is just the vessel God uses anyway.

It’s pretty cool! 

 

Thanks to Richard for pointing this out.
