Bible Results

I recently heard a preacher say this, "When you do Bible things Bible ways, you get Bible results." This is so true! It really stuck out to me and made me think of the book of Acts in particular. The early church did not keep the Pentecostal experience within four walls, but they took it everywhere. Acts 2:41 states "and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls." I just got to thinking, all those souls were added in just one day! We get so satisfied with just a few good things happening when God wants to do so much more. I don't mean that we shouldn't be thankful for what God does, just a few good things are something to praise God about! But He wants to do much more, just like He did in the book of Acts. That doesn't just happen for no reason, it happens because somebody got in the Holy Ghost and got out there and did something! God isn't the one that's changed.

If we want the kind of revival we talk about having, we have to do more than what we are doing. If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got, and that's the truth! Things happen when we pray, fast, and reach out to people. It's got to be more than just inviting people to church. Jesus called us to be witnesses unto Him! We need to tell them of the things He has done for us. That is where I want to be, I want to walk in the Holy Ghost and let God use me. It doesn't matter what position you have in the church, if you don't pray and you don't witness, God is not pleased. I want to please God! I want Bible results, so I know I have to get out of my comfort zone and do more before it's too late...
