Unto the Hills – June 30, 2013

Why is Christianity so different from the religions of the world?  It is because Christianity is not a religion.  It is a relationship with a living God, Jesus Christ.

For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself; and he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man.

John 5:26,27 NRSV

God will not force the new life upon us against our will.  We must be ready to receive Christ as Lord and Savior with all our hearts.  Then the miracle of the new birth takes place.

I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.

John 5:24 NIV

No matter how sinful or unworthy we may feel today, God can use us.  Throughout history God has chosen ordinary people and unworthy people and the least likely people.  He can use us in our community, our town, our city, our country!

Many Samaritans from that city believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me all that I ever did.”

John 4:39 RSV

Covet the will of God for your life more than anything in the world.  You can have peace in your heart with little if you are in the will of God; but you can be miserable with much if you are out of His will.

Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to finish His work.”

John 4:34 NKJV

“God is Spirit – infinite, eternal and unchangeable.”  Those three words beautifully describe God.  Men change, fashions change, conditions and circumstances change, but God never changes.  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.

God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

John 4:24

Revival is not more and not less than the presence of Christ in the heart, the home, the community, and the nation.  Revival must begin with individuals.  In the words of an old hymn, “Lord, send a revival, and let it begin with me.”

Will you not revive us again?

Psalm 85:6 NIV
