Gimme

Prayer.

In a language you don’t understand.

For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.  And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

To speak truth and life to the city.

Souls crying out.

For God to move in revival.

Not for you, not for me, but for Him and for them.

It’s a place of offering and sacrifice  and prayer and intercession.

That is, the church.

Go.

Action, movement, momentum, following the Lord’s command wherever it leads.

And make disciples of all nations.

Action, a giving of the self for others’ spiritual growth and good.

Baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Action, obeying Jesus’ example and command for his followers.

Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

Again, an action, instructing and mentoring others in spiritual maturation and obedience.

There is no consumer Christianity.  Follow or don’t.  Being on the fence is, by default, not following.  Sitting on the fence is sitting.  Sitting is not moving, not walking, not tripping, not falling, not moving at all.  Following Christ requires movement.  So MOVE!
