Strike the Match!

In the future, the mountain with the LORD's temple will be the highest of all.It will reach above the hills;every nation will rush to it.Many people will come and say,“Let's go to the mountain of the LORD God of Jacob and worship in his temple.”The LORD will teach us his Law from Jerusalem,and we will obey him.He will settle arguments between nations.They will pound their swords and their spears into rakes and shovels;they will never make war or attack one another.People of Israel, let's live by the light of the LORD.

Isaiah 2:2-5

If Jesus ruled in the heart of every man, woman and child on planet earth what would it be like to live here? Everyone you meet would already know the Lord and the Love of Christ would be seen and felt in every encounter. The prisons would soon be empty and the courts would not be needed to settle disputes. Politicians would proclaim the truth to the people and deceiving advertisements would stop running.

Is it possible that everyone would turn their hearts to Jesus? The answer is "yes" unless you believe that God created some men without the freedom to choose.

God wants to set the entire world on fire with His love. I stand with a small box of matches on the edge of a parched and dry land and find it hard to believe that my small fire can ignite the whole world for Jesus.

Jesus wants me today to put the match to the tender and let the wind of the Holy Spirit bring the flame to life!

"Lord Jesus, forgive me for not believing that You can cover the whole earth with Your love. May this be a Day of Destiny when Your people overwhelm the world with Your love. I pray that everyone will turn to You today. Amen."
