“Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John replied, ‘Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to obey you rather than God. For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.’” (Acts 4:18-20).
The early church grew in numbers, power, and fame in the midst of persecution, separation from families, and threats of imprisonment and death. A passionate group of disciples committed themselves to a cause that was greater than themselves and received power and glory from Jesus to serve Him in His mission: “Salvation for the world”. Nothing or no one could stop them from sharing about Jesus Christ, His life, death, and His resurrection. They were His witness and the movement called Christianity was birth to radically save and rescue lives, transform communities and nations.
CHAYIL Glory is the manifested power and glory of our LORD Jesus Christ in and through His servants. The disciples of Jesus were His servants through whom His powerful purpose on earth would be accomplished, “Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.” (Mark 16:20).
Through His disciples Jesus worked miracles, healed the sick, delivered people from demonic strongholds, and kept His Name alive on earth. Now us. God is empowering and glorifying a passionate group of disciples to serve Him to fill our world with His powerful (CHAYIL) Glory for a great harvest in His Kingdom. We must ignite our passion to serve and pray like Jesus, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You.” John 17:1, NKJV. We are God’s servants. “And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” (Is. 40:5). Together we can.
Jesus Christ is the Savior of our world and I am His passionate servant.
