I remember packing in to a Pentecostal church, people crowding in to the altars, excited about what God was doing. People were getting saved and being led into their first steps of discipleship. Bible conferences and teaching series were everywhere. If the bookstore offered anything from a Pentecostal or charismatic author, it was on the shelf next to the cult section. But desktop publishing meant every big ministry could crank out booklets to go with their tape series.
I felt like I was part of a movement that was going somewhere. We had the joy of the Lord.
Yes, I miss those days. Many things have changed. But God is still ready and able to work with all those who pursue him, no matter where they have come from or what they have done.
God bless you on your journey. May you taste and see that the Lord is good and that he empowers his people to do great things today.
In the service of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit,
