Moving Up!
By Becky7 Wilson

It’s been said that if you want someone to move, don’t bulldoze their shack; but build a mansion next door and invite them to move in with you. Our personal testimonies combined with the story of God’s incredible love help build those mansions in the minds and hearts of those who live in spiritual poverty.

People don’t always know they live in a spiritual shack, yet instinctively, they know something is wrong in their lives, but they don’t know where to go or what to do to make it right. Many of us have a testimony that lets people know we once lived right where they are. We are called to help these people move out of Satan’s slums and into the Lighthouse where moth and rust do not decay.

If we pray for God to show us where the lost are living, we can do what Jesus did and simply stand at their door and knock. When our Evangelistic Series starts in October, many of them will be knocking at our door, hoping to relocate to a more spiritual neighborhood. Have no fear that we are inadequate to the task, because God said we are His workmanship. He has already given us the tools we need to reach the lost.

God has issued each of us a building permit, the Word is our blueprint; Jesus is our carpenter, angels drive the moving van and heaven can be their new home. Pray mightily for those God will be calling to our Evangelistic Series.

Unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain who build it…”
Psalm 127:1

Pray that God will give you a heart for those that are lost.
