Transformed By the Renewing of My Mind (3)
This next post is going to serve as a reminder that one day
I'm going to write a book on the topic of creative ways to
allow the Spirit of God to manifest thru believers. The Bible
says in Hebrews 10:24, "let us consider how we may spur
one another on toward love and good deeds."
Several months ago, we had the opportunity to go out to
the streets to evangelize, and one of the ideas God gave
me spontaneously to minister with were the following:
There were 4 or 5 of us out witnessing. And we came
upon one fellow who we asked if he wanted to feel the
tangible, physical touch of God's Spirit. So we had him
stand up. And then two men from our group stood on each
side of him. I then told each person standing beside the man
to lay hands on him and just think in their minds a part of
the guy's body that they wanted God to touch. And without
saying anything, I told them to wait. The first dude from our
group went first. And after a few moments I asked the guy
(who was having hands laid on him) if he could feel anything different going on with his body. And he said he was. And
then I asked the brother who was laying hands on him what
part of the dude's body was he wanting God to touch. And he
said which part. Then I asked the guy again, where at on his
body was he getting the touch. And it was the exact spot that
the brother was thinking about. This exact same thing
happened with the brother who was on the other side of him
too. It was simple. But it was the first sign I had ever seen.
And in retrospect, the reason why enjoyed that experience
so much and like sharing it is the fact that the Lord used 3
different people beside myself to show His love and power
Now some people will stop and object to this sort of thing
and ask what real good does it do. And while I agree, people
do need to be born-again. And ministry shouldn't stop at this.
But I will remind you of what Jesus said in John 14:11. He
told people to believe and even if it were the works themselves
that caused them to come to faith in Him then so be it. So what
I submit is that this kind of Spirit on flesh ministry is profitable
in at least two ways.
1. Hebrews 10:24 - It causes us to consider how to spur one
another on unto love and good works
2. John 14:11 - It gives the evidence for belief that God is
and is able to do what He said He will do.
