Spark (noun): A small fiery particle thrown off from a fire; or produced by striking together two hard surfaces such as stone or metal.
It seems as though when I open up my social media, turn on the television, or go to work I hear about the horrible events going on in our world. Racism, hate, and violence are the main issues that are at the forefront of each headline. It’s enough to make me not want to turn on the news, but it also shows me that the needed change that we are praying for can start with us.
Recently at my church (The Rock Church Manhattan), we’ve been talking about the power of the number 12 and how important it is to build a network of people that can help spread the gospel of Jesus. Just as Jesus had 12 disciples that followed him and assisted in spreading the message of Christ through truth, love, with signs following, we duplicate the same thru cell groups that consist of 12 members that come together, build each other up in love, and share the gospel of Christ. Our cell groups are a metaphor for the cells that make up a human body. In forming these groups, we are creating a breeding ground for miracles, signs and wonders to happen not only in our lives, but the lives of those that we connect with and touch. This power (given through God) can be used to change situations, overturn decision that seem unchangeable, and change the situations going on in this world through unity of prayer and action.
We are all “Rocks” that come together with a purpose and message of love. If two rocks coming together can cause a spark, imagine what will happen if 12 rocks come together? Answer: Start a wildfire of love, signs and wonders that spreads all around the world! 🙂
