The Shofar Man's Newsletter Volume 7 - Part 3
Living In an Attitude of Revival - Being About the Father's Business
I have been asking God to show me how to teach his people how to walk in a state or attitude of revival.
Carla and I recently watched a 6 part video series called "THE SPIRIT OF SONSHIP"
In part 5 of this video series, this scripture really came to life for me.
34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. John 4:34 - King James Version (KJV)
34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. (NKJV)
34 Jesus said to them, My food (nourishment) is to do the will (pleasure) of Him Who sent Me and to accomplish and completely finish His work. (AMP)
Since the time I was saved, I have always been very concerned and very involved about the Fathers Business. When I was only 3 days in the Lord I wrote out my testimony and started sharing it with people I would meet in every day life.
Consider this in regards to the above scripture. From the time I was saved, "My food ", the thing that fueled me, the thing that kept me going, the thing that energized me was to do the will of the father and complete it!!
2 As new babies want milk, you should want to drink the pure milk which is God’s Word so you will grow up and be saved from the punishment of sin. 1 Peter 2:2 New Life Version (NLV)
“The milk is the word, and the meat is the work.”
Keeping this in mind, I looked at several people that I know that very clearly walk in a state or attitude of revival. One thing they all have in common is that they are all about the Father's Business! Their Food, the thing that nourishes them, the thing that fuels them, the thing that motivates them, is to do the will of the Father!
The 2nd thing I see in those that I know that walk in a state or attitude of revival is that they share their faith as part of their ever day life style .
15 He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. 2 Corinthians 5:15 New Living Translation (NLT
The people that I know that are walking in a state or attitude of revival no longer live for themselves but live for Christ!
So a couple of things that I see in those that are walking in a state of revival are :
They have died to self and live to serve Christ!
They are daily busy about the Father's Business!
They share their faith with people they meet in daily living!
Many years ago a wise pastor said, " We do not have to reinvent the wheel. When we find something that a ministry does very well, partner with them, allow God to use them to do what they have been better equipped to do than you are! "
With that in mind, I would like to introduce you to the video series I mentioned above and the man behind the video series. Don Atkin is a true servant of God and a wise master builder. If you want to walk in a state of revival it starts by watching the "THE SPIRIT OF SONSHIP" Video Series
I am sure glad I watched it !!! You will be to !!!!!
