January 26, 27, 28
We'll be doing Heaven's Gates / Hell's Flames at Pearson this weekend. This will be the first time we have done in it in several years.
I love having the opportunity to be part of this outreach again. The message is simple; One Day you will die and you will either go to heaven or hell. You choose now which it will be. The dramas force the audience to acknowledge that their time on earth is finite and that the possibility of spending eternity in Heaven or Hell is something that they must address. Doesn't get much simpler than that.
We will spend 3 days preparing for the drama and 3 nights delivering the message. For many, it will be the first time they see God moving in a tangible way. For some, it will be the first time they have been in an environment where they are totally dependent on God. Most have not had to memorize an entire dramatic scene, much less memorize it in 24 hours. Between the lack of sleep and the nerves of being on stage, we will all be very much dependent on God to deliver His message of redemption through us.
I have wonderful friends who will be participating in the drama for the first time and I expect their lives and their relationship with Christ to be radically changed. For others of us who have done this before, I expect us to embrace the abundance of God's grace and provision as our spirits are renewed. I know that God will deliver many in the audience from the bondage of sin and guilt with the promise of Salvation.  These things fill me with excitement to the point of giddiness! I am praying that the excitement and renewal born out of this revival will unite our congregation and spur us to even more concentrated evangelism.
