Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Now is the time for us to take hold of the Lord like never before; now is the time to look at the shaking taking place around the world, the riots in Muslim countries around the world, the upheaval in America, the terrible pain and tragedy in different parts of the world. Shaking is everywhere, this is not the time for us to be on the sidelines, sitting back, trying to live a nice life, this is a time for us to take hold of the Lord, to live revolutionary lives as followers of Jesus, to say, “Here I am, send me, use me. Here I am, on the front lines.” Can you pray, can you share the gospel, can you give, can you be a friend? What can you do if you’ll make your life available to the Lord, not comparing yourself to someone else, not trying to be something God hasn’t made you to be? If you will give yourselves unconditionally to Him, I assure you, He will give yourself unconditionally to you, and your life will make a difference. If your heart says, “There must be more,” if your heart is longing for usefulness and purpose in God, I want to encourage you, God is for you, not against you; throw yourself into Him, heart, soul, mind, and strength, and you will not be disappointed.
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: If a counter-culture revolution without God and the Bible on its side could so transform American society, how much more could a Jesus revolution? A Spirit-filled, love-based, scripture-filled, God-breathed holy movement, coming through us to society? America needs it, this generation needs it, the world needs it; there’s shaking happening all around. We need not just more religion, not just more of the same, but followers of Jesus living this thing out. Let’s take up our cross, let’s follow Jesus, and let’s see a Jesus revolution in our day.
