“Awaken the Church & Culture to Jesus!” Sermon Series by Dr. Michael Lewis
AWAKEN is the call of the Spirit to the heart of every child of God; The Spirit is calling us to life, light, and love. What is spiritual awakening and what does it look like in a believer’s life, a church, a community or a nation.The Awakening America Alliance identified 20 Indicators of Spiritual Awakening of what a contemporary spiritual awakening would look like in America in the church and in the cu lture.
This series of sermons will challenge the members of Roswell Street Baptist Church in Marietta, Georgia to awaken to the realization that the only hope for our nation is a revived church which is fully alive by God’s Spirit to shine the light and love of Jesus. The world is dying while the church is sleeping, and the urgent need of our day is AWAKE. The ‘Working the Word’ challenges will focus calling members to united prayer, personal confession of sin and repentance, and seeking spiritual outcomes which impact our community.
Dr. Ronnie Floyd, pastor & president of the National Day of Prayer said the following –“True revival is nothing less and nothing more than the manifest presence of God in our lives. It is when Jesus is free to be who He wants to be in, through, and around us.A surrendered pastor and a surrendered church will experience spiritual revival, especially when both are surrendered at the same time.
”We must learn to pray in surrender – “Lord, I give 100% of me to 100% of You so that 100% of You will work through 100% of me!”“A spiritual breakthrough begins with personally surrendering oneself fully to God, transferring all ownership to the one true Owner, Jesus Christ. We do not need to grab, but to release. We do not live with our hands in fists, but with our hands open. We will never choose to let God have His way with us if we continue to hang on to our own desires, our own dreams, and our own bondage.”“Surrendering to God is abandoning all that we have in order to receive all that God possesses.’“Stop being content living life, doing family, working in the marketplace, and doing ministry through the local church without the power of God.”
