My oh my, long time no post liao. I think I speak for everyone when i said that. Haha, how's everyone, not much update except from the reports of Minjie from Lynn. Funny thing that we only hear about him on this blog when he is away.
Let's move on, I'm definitely not here to talk about Jie, I'll leave that to Lynn. I wanna talk about the FIRE conference that happened over the last weekend. It was really happening sia. Bonnke was a really inspiring with his simple yet passionate preaching. His illustrations were fresh and interesting, captivating his audiences with sharing his love for Jesus, with the emphasis of saving souls for Him. In his words "Hell empty, Heaven Full!"
The heart of this 60+ year old evangelist is for Africa and his mission: to see 100 million souls saved in this decade. So far up to now, he already has more than 40 millions recorded dedications to Jesus! How does he do that? Simply GO for Jesus.
Here's some of the highlights that he preached:
"The Bible says 'Young men see visions and old men dream dreams', but I say to the old men that its time to wake up. If not the dreams will always remain dreams."
"God work with the workers, He runs with the runners, but he doesn't sit with the sitters"
He also said that some Christians are frozen: after they received Christ, they freeze themselves. Cold to the world of unsaved and preserve themselves for heaven
And why be a millionaire in this world where things will perish, be a SOUL millionaire!
As I sit and listen, my heart beats to the resonance of the passion of his life. It also echoes what I have been telling my care group for the last few sessions. So young people, what is your passion and desire for God in life? Its time for you to thaw yourself and GO out there. For God has called all of us to be fishers of men.
Remember how many times we have felt God's touch only to go back and choose to be the way we were. How we believe the devil that its normal for us to just be fired up during conferences and camps only to go back and lead our old lives. My friends, we need to keep the passion a raging fire and not just a flame. For if we do not fuel it, by doing what God has set out or called us to do, it'll eventually go out.
