If you are God’s child, then, just like your Father, and Jesus Christ, find your work and get on with it.
Falling down under the anointing can be cool; but does that manifestation accelerate the materialization of your dreams?
The new mission frontier is no longer China, Africa or one unknown country in a forgotten part of the world. It is your family. Take the Gospel to your wife. Take the Gospel to your kids. Take the Gospel to your husband.
Is it not tragic that we do more and more for a Lord whom we know less and less? That, in spite of all our services for Him, few Christians really know Him?
