I have a dream!

Imagine all the followers of Jesus Christ in any given city or region determining in their hearts that they are going to obey Jesus. What would some of the results be? Here are a few things that would happen:

  • They will first and foremost put making disciples above all other religious activates, church services and guilt motivated demands put upon them by manmade institutions, traditions, programs or religious leaders.

  • They will live their faith out in front of a world that is longing to know their heavenly father.
  • They will have a relationship with Jesus based upon their ever present dialogue with him and their quest to know Him and His love for them.
  • They will gather together with one another in homes, places of employment, restaurants, pubs and parks fellowshipping together, learning from one another about their relationship with Jesus with a world seeking Him joining in the conversation.
  • They will disdain religion and anything that has become a barrier to all those who are created in the image of God and are waiting to know their Father God.
  • They will demonstrate their love one to another revealing to the world around them that they are truly Jesus’ disciples.
  • They will live generously without having to be manipulated by threats of being non-tithers, but they always give as God has provided cheerfully to the needs to the poor and to reach the unreached nations of the world. They have no desire to finance the ambitions of men to build empires and monuments disguised as God’s will.
  • They will have disdain for sin and love holy lives without being self-righteous toward those who struggle with the weaknesses of the flesh but serve them as Jesus served the sinner.
  • They will have no Savior but Jesus, no Lord and King but Jesus, for He is their great High priest and Shepherd. He will therefore be the leader of all corporate activities, gatherings and meetings. He will be in the midst all church gatherings to preside regardless of their size, their location or whether professional ministers are present or not present.
  • They will rely on the Holy Spirit to teach them and reveal all truth to them as he ministers to them through one another by his giftings and his ever present anointing in all believers.
  • They will respect those who are mature in the faith without promoting them to positions of superiority and rulership, but serve with them equally as priests of the most high God, never creating a separate class of disciples.
  • They will have no tolerance for any institution or organization that would hinder them from doing any of the above and we would see real revival as never before!

Can you dream with me? Let’s make this dream come true and start living this way one follower of Jesus at a time!
