Ever think about the Egyptians, what they must have thought, how they felt as plague after plague came upon them? The ones who didn’t agree with Pharaoh, but were powerless to do anything. While the people of God were not affected. God allowed so much destruction and death to occur, why? Why would God allow this? Well, we know it was to show Pharaoh and all of the world who the one true God is.

Plague after plague ruined the water, land and the lives of the first born of every family. This was a necessary, but painful season. Think about what we see on the news, social media post etc. everyday. Could this be a necessary, painful season to usher in great freedom? Except this freedom will be for those who have been lied to and had a veil over their eyes, those who have been programmed to listen to everything that is fed to them by the media. Could we be on precipice of a great Exodus for the lost?

There are many who don’t agree with all of the violence and destruction, but don’t know the Lord. Could they be apart of the Great Awakening?

Peter and John were busy men in the days immediately following Pentecost. They had 3,000 new believers to organize, teach, and take care of, and they had to do so in a way that wouldn’t discredit the Gospel they proclaimed. They were not too busy, though, to recognize a divine appointment and take advantage of it.

One day, as they went about their duties, a lame man called out to them. Why this lame man, who spent every day by the gate called Beautiful where Peter and John passed by, chose to call out to them on this particular day, we don’t know, but he did. Always mindful of their mission to make disciples, Peter and John took a moment to discern how God would have them interact with the man before engaging. Peter and John ended up giving the man even more than he asked for, and the grace they demonstrated toward this outsider drew a crowd.

Had Peter and John not been interruptible, they would have missed the opportunity to change a man’s life and get the attention of an unbelieving crowd that had shown little interest in them or their message up until that point. Had they ignored the man to keep their appointment with members of the Church, they would have missed an opportunity to advance the Kingdom by advancing truth, but they did not. Instead of forfeiting evangelism for the sake of discipleship, Peter and John accomplished both, setting an example for the early Church to follow.

Jesus, too, had been interruptible. Upon the disciples’ return from their first ‘independent’ missionary experience (Jesus hadn’t accompanied them in the flesh, but He’d sent the Holy Spirit with them) Jesus listened to the disciples and then took them somewhere to discuss their tour of duty. The crowd, however, had other plans and pressed in to see and hear Jesus. Instead of putting the crowd off to disciple the apostles right then as He planned, Jesus welcomed the crowd and saw to their needs, turning what the apostles considered an interruption, of sorts, into a learning experience for them—the famed feeding of the five thousand.

What about you? Are you interruptible? Are you mindful of your mission at all times? Do you recognize divine appointments when they happen? Do you keep them? Do you set an example of evangelism for those you disciple?

Luke 9:10-11

God bless you all!

You are needed! You are not a mistake! You are beautiful! You are handsome! You are worthy of love! You are loved by God! You are a blessing! You are not alone! You were created for a reason! You have a God given purpose in this world!

‭‭“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.”

‭‭I Peter‬ ‭2:9-10‬ ‭

Great Awakening!
