“I have come to set the world on fire, and I wish it were already burning.” Luke 12:49
Jesus came to bring a revolution. I think that we have forgotten why God sent His Son to earth. He sent His Son to change the world. Jesus was a revolutionary person. A revolutionary person fearlessly advocates radical change. Revolutionary people and ideas challenge the status quo. Jesus came to change the status quo. We need a Jesus Revolution if we are going to change our world for Jesus. Like the word resolve, it’s all about turning things around.
We see this fire starting to burn in the book of Acts. “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) In this scripture Jesus gives us instruction on how to start this Jesus Revolution. We start with waiting on God until we have the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Then we can change our community for God. The place where we live. Then we change our state. Then we can change our nation. Then we can change the world. Jesus told us to be light in our community.
The Holy Spirit will give us the power to be the light in the community. The Holy Spirit will give us the power to live out the Christian life. Having the power of the Holy Spirit means we have the power to start the revolution. We need to start that revolution today. Pray that God will give you the Holy Spirit so the revolution will start in your life.
