|Our passion at The Rooftop is to see a great spiritual awakening take place in our nation and across the globe resulting in millions coming into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. However, we know that before that will happen, a great spiritual awakening must take place in the Church.
Over the years, we have approached the decline in people coming to know Christ by developing more programs and materials focused on sharing the Gospel with others. In doing so, we have bypassed the real issue as to why Christians never share their faith - their heart is out of step with God's heart. We don't need any more programs or materials...we need a heart transformation. We need to be awakened to God's heart just as Peter was in Acts 10. We need fresh eyes to see ourselves and others as God does.
We need to be awakened to the attitudes of the heart that keep us from Joining Jesus in His Mission, our pride, our prejudices, and our preferences. We need to be awakened to God's passionate love for those around us who desperately need Jesus. We need an awakening that drives us to our knees in repentance and drives us beyond the walls to engage a lost world with the Gospel.
It is our heart-cry to see this great spiritual awakening in the Church and our culture become a reality that drives us as a ministry. It is why I will travel to D.C. and Chicago this month to cast the vision for City-wide Rooftop Prayer Encounters. It is why I call pastors about having us come to their churches and share the message of awakening found in Acts 10.
In Ephesians 5:16, Paul wrote, "Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days." It is my desire to do just that; to make the most of every opportunity He gives me. To pursue His every prompting of my heart. To not slow up or give up until I am called up or caught up! Is that your desire?
