Vintage message from December 8, 1996.
“We are the greatest [as] evangelists when we come to the place of realizing that we’re nothing special. God loves us all the same. God will not show favoritism…The fact is that God loves us all, and He wants us to be responsive to Him and to be filled with His Spirit…He wants all of us to be able to go out and tell someone that in the Name of Jesus Christ, you can be forgiven of your sin and spend eternity with the Father. That’s the bottom line. We are to be about telling people and showing people with our own lives that they can spend eternity with the Father. Not go to this place called heaven. Heaven is nothing if God’s not there…When I hear believers describing heaven, the one thing that is oftentimes left out is the description of the Father…Jesus Christ, His Son, gave His life to tell us that, and that we can go and spend eternity with a Person and within a relationship that is going to fulfill us for all eternity, no matter what that eternity might offer us. You know, we only hear a small portion of what eternity is. When we stand before the Father, we only know a small portion in writing of what’s going to happen. What’s going to happen beyond what we have described here in God’s Word is relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ His Son, emboldened by the power of the His Spirit to come into His presence and actually talk to Him. This is what we need to be telling people out there who do not have lives that are fulfilled.”
