The power and passion for the Saturate Movement is Jesus, the King of Glory. It is His love that compels us, His river that flows through us and His fire that burns within us. The book of John gives us the clearest path to worldwide awakening. It states: “…that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” (John 17:21)
Too often Christian unity movements overlook the engine of this clear flight path to revival. The excitement to unleash the power of collective impact can often lead to the disastrous circumvention of the call to oneness with Christ.
The holy equations are always the same:
Do you love me……………………………Feed my sheep
The love of Christ…………………..………………………………..compels us
Honor the Great Commandment…………………………….Fulfill The Great Commission
One with God in Christ + One with each other = The world will know Jesus!
Dr. Ray Bakke recently researched the decline of the church in 300 major cities around the world. His conclusion: The number one factor in the kingdom decline was hopelessness in the church. Only a greater view of Christ can break off this chokehold of despair. Joshua and the nation of Israel conquered Jericho and the Promised Land by faith before they possessed it with their feet.
Our love for each other and the lost will not sustain us over the long haul. Often, we are not stronger than the schemes of the devil to discourage and divide us. At times, we are not passionate enough to reach the lost. We are too often divided from local pastors by jealously, bitterness and relational challenges.
A “kingdom divided against itself is laid waste” (Matt. 12:25). We need a Christ Awakening to heal our divisions and “compel” us into the streets to reach the lost. As our churches are saturated with the knowledge of Jesus, together, we will move forward to saturate the world with the Gospel.
Christ Saturation of the Church + Gospel Saturation of our communities = CHRIST AWAKENING EVERYWHERE!
