Over the past month, the REVOLUTION staff has spent a lot of time researching, praying, and thinking through every aspect of our ministry. But more than anything, we have spent a lot of time dreaming for the future of REVOLUTION.
Habakkuk 1:5 has been jumping off the pages of our Bibles: “Look around…and be amazed! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.”
God has given us some seriously ridiculous dreams for REVOLUTION in 2012.
Here are 3 of them…
1. YOU WILL DIVE INTO THE BIBLE LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
Last night, I personally challenging every single REVOLUTION student and leader to participate in the PROJECT 3:45 Bible plan. I’m a big believer in having a plan. A wise man once said, “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.”
In an average of just 3 minutes and 45 seconds a day, 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, you will be able to read the complete New Testament in one year. Can you commit to give 3 minutes and 45 seconds a day to God through PROJECT 3:45?
2. YOU WILL BE AT REVOLUTION EVERY TIME THE DOORS ARE OPEN.
Let me be crystal clear about this, the church is a big deal. The local church is the hope of the world because it is the only vehicle God established to carry the message of Jesus Christ to the world.
My challenge to our students is to not make church optional. To commit to being at REVOLUTION every single Wednesday.
3. YOU WILL SEE AT LEAST ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS ACCEPT JESUS AT REVOLUTION.
There’s nothing more satisfying, nothing more addicting than seeing somebody you’ve invested in start a life-long relationship with Jesus.
At REVOLUTION, we are addicted to sharing Jesus. We are addicting to telling others what God has done in our lives. We are addicted to inviting people to have a life to the full relationship with God. We are addicted to seeing people get saved. No matter how big we get, no matter how many lives are changed, we will not be satisfied until every person on this planet knows Jesus.
And that starts with 7 simple, yet profound words that could change someone’s life: WILL YOU GO WITH ME TO REVOLUTION?
And if you consistently ask the people around you those 7 simple, yet profound words…
- Your friend that hasn’t been to church in two months – will show up again.
- Your friend that is hooked on some bad junk – will be set free.
- Your friend that is hurting on the inside – will find hope and healing at the cross of Jesus.
- Your friend that is living in darkness – will step into the light and find salvation.
God can take one invitation and start a revival. (What a crazy thought!)
My prayer is that all 3 of those dreams come true in 2012.
