The Resurrection Power!

Are You A Power Filled Holy Ghost Believer?

Luke 15:4-5 What man of you, if he has a hundred sheep and should lose one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness (desert) and go after the one that is lost until he finds it? 5And when he has found it, he lays it on his [own] shoulders, rejoicing.

Acts 1:8-9 But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth. 9And when He had said this, even as they were looking [at Him], He was caught up, and a cloud received and carried Him away out of their sight.

Reflection: As I Looked at this picture I began to see through the eyes of this child. She didn't seem concerned about what color the eggs were or how big or how small they were. She bends down picks up each egg & she carefully places them into her basket. Even when her basket is full, she is determined that she can fit one more egg in that basket. She's not going to stop until she has gathered all the eggs!

I thought about the shepherd as he gathers his sheep. The bible says that a good shepherd will leave the ninety-nine to go after the one lost sheep. Has it ever occurred to you that because God's desire is to seek & save the lost, that he is very concerned when he is missing one of his sheep? The good shepherd sends out his representatives who will go find the lost sheep! Shouldn't we be just like this little girl totally focused on gathering up God's lost sheep! Should we care about what color they are, how big or how small they are, but recognize that God's desire is for all to be saved & none to perish!

As this little girl gathers the eggs she works quickly and tries to make room for one more in her basket. God says, I have room for many more in my kingdom, will you go? I need someone who will represent me to go and gather them in, will you represent me? I need someone that will speak my words and not try to change the message, will you speak for me?! Someone who will tell my story & let others know who I am, will you tell them who I am? I need someone with compassion and desire to see through my eyes the way that I see a lost & dying world, will you see with my eyes? But what I need most is for someone to step outside their comfort zone and reach out to others who are hurting, is that you, I ask? Like lost sheep without a shepherd, they need to know the good shepherd. I need someone that will draw them to me the good shepherd says, can I count on YOU, says the Lord?

This Easter as we gather together for Sunday morning service and remember the Resurrection power of Jesus Christ, lets not forget that he is still looking for his lost sheep! He would say to you, what about the one that rides the bus with you every morning, have you told them about me? What about the woman whom everyone ignores who is the sales associate behind the counter, have you told her about me? How about that young man who skateboards down your street, have you told him about me? Or the young girl who walks her dog every morning, while chatting on her cell phone, have you told her about me? What about the old woman who sits on her front porch that you pass by, have you told her about me? How about the little boy who carries his backpack to school, have you told him about me? I ask you today, have you told anyone about Jesus lately?

Jesus wants us to see them as he sees them, sheep lost without a shepherd! Jesus is asking you to be His representative today. It won't take fancy words or debates or arguing! It will just take a little of your time & the obedience to speak the gospel message to those you see every day. The very words that have the resurrection power to melt the hearts of those that are searching for Him. The very words that have the power to heal, deliver and set the captives FREE!

Let me share with you how God will give you every opportunity to share with others. Church had just let out & I was waiting around outside the church when I spotted a group of young men coming out the church doors. They walked over to the area where the bus picks them up. Suddenly one young man approached me and said "Hello". I said hello back & suddenly it occurs to me …divine appointment! Once you decide to be a  representative for Jesus you will know & understand that the Holy Spirit will divinely lead you where he wants to use you. All you have to do is be willing to obey His prompting when he speaks. I also pray each morning that God will bring me across someone's path who needs to hear the gospel message.

I looked at this young man and said hello, then I turned to this young man and said "Has anyone ever told you that God loves you and that has a great plan for your life? The young man looked at me and shook his head no! No one had ever told him that God loved him or that he had a great plan for his life. But many of you are thinking, but this young man just came from church, I know! As I've said before and I'm sure that you've heard many times, going to church does not make you saved or guarantee you any entrance into heaven!

Then I said to him  "If today were our last day on earth, do you know for sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt that you would go to heaven? Again, the young man shook his head. By now all his friends were starting to gather around him, they wanted to hear what was being said. So I told them to come closer I had something I wanted to share with all of them. I said "I have good news for you all today, as I watched their faces light up with anticipation waiting to hear what I would say next.  Let me share with you what  the holy bible reads I said, "for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God", and "the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord".  "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved".  Your a whosoever right? They all shook their heads yes.

Then I prayed this prayer over them: Lord, I thank you for coming across (I named each of the four young men's names) paths today. I ask you to bless them & their families with a long and healthy lives.  Jesus, make yourself real to them and do a quick work in their heart.  If they have not received Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior, I pray that they will do so now. If you would like to receive the gift that God has for you today say this prayer with your heart and lips out loud.  (Each of the young men that were gathered waiting for their bus, bowed their heads & said this prayer. If you don't know for sure where you will spend eternity, say the prayer below and ask Jesus to be Lord of your life and receive the free gift of eternal life).

Dear Lord Jesus, come into my heart.  Forgive me of my sin.  Set me free.  Jesus, thank you that you died for me.  I believe that God raised you from the dead.  Fill me with the Holy Spirit, the peace of God, and the joy of the Lord.  Give me a passion to reach the lost, a hunger for the things of God, and a holy boldness to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.  I’m saved,  I’m born-again.  I’m forgiven and I’m on my way to heaven because I have Jesus in my heart.  Thank you Jesus.  When you asked Jesus to come into your heart and to forgive you, he heard you and did so.  All of your sins are now forgiven.  Always remember to run to God and NOT from God because he loves you and has a great plan for your life. Now here is the best news of all…YOUR READY!
