I love saying that! Even though there may only be a handful of very idle people gathered around their laptop reading this (while resting a minute in between experiencing grander and more significant Christian web vistas!) I don’t care – a hit is a hit and a hit is a possibility for me to inject my little sprightly spirit into the huge christian landscape that abounds across the earth!
In the light of this daunting landscape that’s laden with variety, depth, size and movement – what, me thinks, will be the after effects of the crash of Todd Bentley and the masquerades of a young Australian evangelist who wasn’t all we thought? Very little… and a lot less than we could imagine! All of us to some degree are legends, but our legendary status exists to the end of the carpet of the lounge room that we inhabit! It’s good to be a legend – I love it – but it’s also good to not see ourselves more highly than we ought.
We’re essential in God’s plans, yet the show must go on. His Kingdom is far more robust than we could ever imagine! The Florida revival was never a Florida revival anyway – 99% of Florida didn’t even know about it. and it was built around a solitary, frail man searching for his own inner identity. It was a drop in the ocean of God’s power on earth. The show of Gods power on earth was hardly was hardly marred by its demise. My bible college principal once wrote on the top of our white board
” May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you” Psalm 25 vs 21
If it’s faith that opens the door to destiny and power, it’s integrity that keeps that door open until every drop of destiny is achieved. We need both to do our bit for the greatest show on earth – His Kingdom advancing! We may be legends in our lounge rooms, but let’s do it well for the Kingdom of God and be there in the end!
