I hope these stories of what’s happening in our world inspire and encourage you. I want you to know that Jesus is touching lives here and now. There’s power when He walks into a room. Whether it’s a prayer group, a train station, or a home, when Jesus walks in everything changes.
I love the reaction of the Swedish pastor, “Jesus never appears to us, and we are the ones praying for them.”
How often do we feel that way? Think about it . . . Do we find ourselves believing things would be so much easier if Jesus would literally walk into our situations? But here’s the thing, we have Scripture, the written Word, which reveals Jesus, the Word made flesh.
If we believe this to be true, then a conversation with Jesus is as close as Scripture. God gave us His Word because we are His ambassadors. Jesus was an ambassador of heaven who came to earth, and now He has empowered us to represent God’s kingdom on this earth. Ambassadors represent a kingdom on foreign soil. That’s why when we walk into a room, God’s kingdom walks in with us.
Regardless of what room you find yourself in—whether it’s your school, home, workplace, etc.—remember that the Spirit of Christ will energize your life and bring His grace and truth into your circumstances. We just need to have eyes to see and a willingness to obey.
