Give your Respose

Just Plain Awesome

April 19, 2009

It's Sunday morning in Arizona and I'm about to catch a flight back home. I really can't explain what I'm feeling right now. You see, for the past few nights I've been preaching for a Jesus Loves Jeans youth conference in Phoenix, AZ.

During the last few nights, several people responded to appeals and recommitted their lives to Christ, but nothing really prepared me for what God did on the final night. We had set up a baptismal pool at the front of the church and filled it with faith--and some water. Two kids wanted to get baptized and we were excited for them.  But then something crazy began to happen. God started moving.

As I appealed for people to give their hearts to Jesus, people started responding. But get this, they didn't just want to give their hearts to Christ, they wanted to be baptized on the spot. They didn't bring extra clothes with them. They had planned to attend the final night, enjoy the program, see their friends, and go home. But God had other ideas.

What's crazy is, I wanted to close the service because the hour was late, but God wouldn't let me end it. Every time I prepared to pray, someone else would come down for baptism. By the end of the night, 15 people had been baptized and 5 others wanted to get baptized in the next baptism. Many other kids asked for Bible studies and special prayer. I thought I had seen it all, but I have never been in a service like the one I witnessed last night. It was the best Saturday night I've ever had--EVER!!

Friend, something is happening. I have heard from friends in ministry that similar things are happening all around the world. Jesus is coming soon, and He's making up His number--the people who will go with Him to heaven.

Are you saved? Have you given your heart to God? Please, please, do it now!
