Every once in a while, I will go back and read through my grandfather's old Bible. He was a pastor some years before I was born. He was a passionate preacher and evangelist but had resigned from the ministry before I came along. As I was reading though his Bible I came across a sermon he had preached nearly 50 years ago.
These were the words that he penned, "Our Lord has been glorified and the great gift to the church is the Holy Ghost and the one answer to your problems and needs and my needs and that of the whole family of God throughout the whole world is the Holy Ghost.
Oh Breath of Life come sweeping through us,
Revive thy church with life and power.
O Breath of life, come, cleanse and renew us,
Equip Thy Church to meet this hour.”
Let this be our prayer as well. That the Breath of Life would sweep through us church and equip us for this hour.
