Every Christian needs divine power from heaven to sustain him. The body of Christians is the temple of God and His spirit dwells in them. If any person destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person (1Corinthians 3: 16). It is time for the power of God to return into our present-day churches.
The call to ministry is to win souls. A pastor who is thinking of winning people to himself and having a large congregation are building humanly churches. Pastors who have the power of God preach the gospel and multitudes give their lives to Christ. Unfortunately, present time church goers are only looking for signs and wonders and play into the hands of false prophets. It is time to wake up and look up to God as our source of power.
In Matthew 28:18-20 our lord Jesus said to his disciples: “All authority in heaven and on earth is given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.” In other words, Jesus gave them the power to go and preach the gospel to all people. Today, the church is not preaching the gospel but preaching about ourselves and our achievements. Let it be known that holiness is not about preaching in tongues, but it is about character and obedience to God. Think of having the power of God in you before you think of speaking in tongues.
