When we examine the Book of Acts and see the movements of God as the Apostles went from place to place under the direction of the Holy Spirit, we plead with God to do the same in our day. There are some doubters who say that we are not living in Paul’s day and it can’t happen today.
God is leading us to places where there is a hunger for God’s Word; NOTHING ELSE! Why is this? The Macedonian church “gave themselves first to the Lord and then by the will of God to us” (2 Corinthians 8:5). Notice the order; their submission first to the Lord determined how they responded to the Apostle’s teaching.
When Paul and Silas preached the gospel to the Jews in Berea, “these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so” (Acts 17:11). Being “noble” is a “willingness to learn and evaluate something fairly.” This is an evidence that true disciples are learning.
We have found this in a recent training in Nicaragua, Central America as you can see from this note. “I deeply believe that God has led me to study this church planting manual. My heart is filled with joy as the Holy Spirit fills me through the study of this handbook that is firm in the Scriptures, the Word of God. My tears flow from my eyes as I savor an exquisite delicacy that the Holy Spirit is nourishing me to continue planting more churches.
I would enjoy spending more time with you to ask many questions and train myself better and thus be a model in my country for those who want to believe by the evidence. There is hunger for God and His Word, people are tired of religions that do not transform life or lead them into a more intimate relationship with Jesus, so I feel that burden in me to pray for them so that they may light their eyes of understanding and thus understand God's plan for The Disciple of Christ.”
Is this happening with you?
