Pursue Against The Grain

Biblical Passion is a mysterious mixture of humility, supernatural hunger and faith. I pursue because I have been pursued. Lethargy must not be found in me. And if the average Christian life around me falls short of the biblical standard, I must pursue against the grain.

If people are not being healed, I will not supply a rationale so that all those around me remain comfortable with the void. Instead, I will pursue the healing until it comes or the individual goes to be with the Lord. ( At this point the prayer for resurrection is appropriate!) I will not lower the standard of the Bible to my level of experience.

Jesus healed everyone who came to Him (Matt. 8:16). To accept any other standard is to bring the Bible down to our level of experience, and deny the nature of the One who changes not.

As for the ministry of power, whatever I receive from God I must give away.

You only get to keep what you give away.

If you want to see people healed look for those who are sick and offer to pray for them. While I am not the healer, I do have control over my willingness to serve those in need. If I minister to the needy, I give Him an opportunity to show His extravagant love for people.

The ministry of signs and wonders will go nowhere if we are afraid of failure.

As Randy Clark puts it “I must be willing to fail to succeed.”

As for the ministry of power, whatever I receive from God I must give away.
