Supernatural Living, Part XX
And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. Acts 5:14,15
My desire for you upon you reading these messages on supernatural living is for you to want more! Don't be satisfied with the status quo of ritualistic church life and its mundane dry and dusty services that you have no part in. We are not meant to submit under a man and allow him to lull us to sleep with his weekly sermon trying to spark enough interest for you to come back next week and do it all again!
God has called us to be His priesthood of Spirit filled ministers of His gospel to a lost and dying world in need of the Savior's power, healing and forgiveness. We are the only ones God has to fulfill His work and purpose to expand His kingdom, He's not looking for cheerleaders or spectators, He's wanting those who have been born again to go and replicate His life in others who are lost and descending into Hell! The church in Acts was doing just that, loving God and their neighbors and giving up their lives for Him who died for them.
The results of their faith in action was constant signs, wonders and miracles of God's grace with even the shadow of Peter healing people. We can see the same outpouring if we will just show up and come out of these dark and dusty funeral services to meet the Lord in the streets, which, by the way is where He is most of the time. Just as He was when He walked the earth is where He wants to be now, where people are in need and He wants to meet their needs through us!
"I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people." Therefore, "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you." "I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty." II Corinthians 6:14-18
