In the midst of the greatest revival in the history of the world—the events described in the book of Acts—in the manifest presence and fullness of God’s glory and power, something happened one day that even further revolutionized the apostles. They cried, “We have to stop! We have to give ourselves to prayer!” (See Acts 6:4). Prayer is the way we fellowship with Jesus.
While I was in the army, I was stationed in Korea during the 1970s. I remember vividly visiting what was then a church of a few thousand people pastured by Dr. Paul Cho. I was so impressed by seeing the sight of thousands gathered in fervent prayer. More than two decades later, I was privileged to again visit that great church, now with hundreds of thousands of members.
If you intend to fight the good fight of faith, you must trust the Word of God. The words of men may stir you to action. They may encourage you. But they should never be the final word for your life. The Word of God is light for your path. It is health for your flesh. It is the revealed will of God for your life.
We have to make sure Christ is the Lord of our lives in order to qualify for His wonderful blessings. But how do we make Him Lord? We must put Christ first in everything, every day! Jesus first. A lost and dying world is staring down the tunnel of eternity; only people who have made Jesus Lord can rescue the multitudes.
