Make Jesus Known

By April 23, 2012 No Comments

The Kony 2012 revolution – viral in March; virtually invisible in April. It was a good idea that started so well. It had a 2 month run. What a difference after two millenniums with the Jesus revolution. From 120 followers in 33AD to 2.2 billion believers today.
Its the difference between a good idea and God’s idea.
The Jesus revolution is not without its challenges, but when Jesus is kept the main thing, the revolution works.
The first recorded prayer of the new Christians kept Jesus the main thing. They were facing persecution, imprisonment, beatings and death threats. But their request of God?
Acts 4:24-31 – “…they raised their voices together in prayer to God. ‘Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.’ After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.”
They saw the world not as it was but as it could be.
They acted as spiritual reformers.
Their focus was not about their rights but on the righteousness that Jesus could bring – healing, signs, wonders.
This is a call to action – to keep the main thing, the main thing.
Jesus 2012.
