The front of your bible

I have been reading John Wimber 'The Way in is the Way on ' slowly over the last couple of months. I learnt from it that Wimber had these words of John Wesley written in the front of his bible:

"Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, by all the means you can, in all the places you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can"

It moved me.

Simon quoted this Evan Roberts' prayer at our Live Life weekend which is in More :

"Send the Spirit now for Jesus Christ's sake
Send the Spirit now powerfully for Jesus Christ's sake
Send the Spirit now more powerfully for Jesus Christ's sake
Send the Spirit now even more powerfully for Jesus Christ's sake"

The result was the Welsh Revival. One of our number decided to write it in the front of his bible. By the way, Simon has just started a 35 sermon series on Romans that should be a real feast.

If you want something to dip into every now and again, the Leadership network have an online conference called the Nines full of ditties from leaders. This year was on 'Game changers' which makes me smile even before I listen to any of them. I loved watching Jared Wilson and although I have never met him I greatly connected with his story which resonated closely with my own (although whatever he describes at the start must be something American's know about but needs a translation into English?)

We are starting The Gospel in Life tonight at Live Life which I am really excited about and I am also excited about The Reason for God DVD . Why not get a copy and gather some friends in your home and talk together about Jesus?
