JESUS REVOLUTION

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

(Acts 1:8)

Revolution in dictionary terms means “a forcible overthrow of a government or social order, in favour of a new system”. In simple terms, revolution ideally means a forceful replacement of the old with the new; A change in the system; a transition from old to new; a dislodging of the old for the new. The only commission Jesus gave to his disciples and by extension, every believer, before his ascension, was for us to spark a global revolution in his name. Matthew properly documented this in his writing, in Chapter 6: 29 it says “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” so we have all received this mandate to make Christ known to our world.

As members of God’s family, we all have one responsibility expected of us, it is to know Jesus and make him known. As revolution starts with the introduction of a new idea or a relearning of an old idea, as a believer you must understand salvation and Christ’s redemption so much that you’re able to tell people about it. The revolution starts from your lifestyle and conduct as a believer. It is difficult to sell a product you’re not sold out to yourself, it is like campaigning for the Labor party and wearing APC’s uniform, there is a contrast and a conflict between the message and the transmitter. This is why God gave us a formula in the book of john, He gave us the formula of “Love”, as the ultimate lifestyle hack. Once you master that lifestyle alone, you’re a breathing, talking, walking, moving Revolutionist. This is because a lot of people have an idea of love, but not a lot of people have learned to master that lifestyle. So, the moment you are able to love the God way, you’re actively playing a part in the Jesus Revolution.

Moving on, in understanding the love lifestyle, you have to understand the formula. It is simply, loving God through Christ in order to love his creation. So, love does not stay in isolation, you can’t claim to love God and not love his creation. In fact, how much you love God is seen in how well you love and treat his creation. Perhaps, love is not in spoken words, it is in action. So, to play an active role in this Jesus revolution, it must be spurred and born out of love for God. As a believer, you must understand that loving God means “preaching God”. Preaching God is then presenting Christ Jesus to all nations, teaching them about his redemptive works and showing them through the scriptures what they have to enjoy in Christ Jesus, and ultimately getting men to believe in Jesus. This indeed is the Jesus Revolution.

Dear believer, this revolution needs you. Our goal is to popularize this message to the entire world and we need all hands on deck to achieve the greatest revolution ever known to human race. Be a part of it today, tell somebody about Jesus. If you truly love Jesus then stop hiding him.

FURTHER READING: Matthew 28:18-20,

DECLARATION: WITH ALL I AM AND ALL I HAVE; I AM COMMITTED TO THIS REVOLUTION. CHRIST WILL BE KNOWN THROUGH ME. THE WORLD WILL FEEL THE IMPACT OF CHRIST IN ME AND THROUGH ME.

THERE IS LOVE IN SHARING
