It’s rewarding to follow good leaders, but it’s not always easy. Leaders have an assignment from Jesus, the head of the church, to equip believers for the work of the ministry, to build them up and bring them into unity of faith and increasing maturity. His aim is to produce followers who are stable and not easily deceived, sidetracked, or tossed about by the latest wind of doctrine.
The Grace of God is a share of His divine nature and empowerment for us as believers to do the impossible. The Church will only be victorious in these end times through the powerful grace of God.

There are a series of doors depicted in stories throughout the Bible that point to the gospel message. These doors represent a decision, they are either a bridge to salvation, or a barrier resulting in damnation. They all point to Jesus, who died for us to open the door to salvation, should we choose to open the door of our hearts to Him, the resurrected Christ.
It is time for believers to be watchful, wary, and equipped for the times we are experiencing. Like Jerusalem, we need the Lord to be a wall of fire round about, and the glory in the midst of us. (Zechariah 2:5)
The Word of God promises that we who love Him and follow after Him will be the head and not the tail. We will be above only and not beneath, so how do we maintain that position of victory in the midst of all the chaos? Let’s take a look at that today.
Part of the role of the Holy Spirit is to lead us into truth and prompt us to follow Jesus. Just as yielding at an intersection prevents us from going straight through into a collision, yielding to the prompting of the Holy Spirit will help us to avoid a wreck. To walk in victory, it is important who and what we yield to, as well as who and what we resist. So, resist sin, the pull of the flesh, and the devil, and yield to God to experience life!
Why do revivals end? What is the cause that brings an outpouring of the Spirit down? Can followers of Christ have a sustainable move of the Holy Spirit? Can we all be one, just like Jesus and the Father are one?
