BREAKTHROUGH! You’ve been hearing me say it. But what exactly IS it and why does it matter?
What it is: Breakthrough (n.) — a sudden, dramatic, and important discovery or development. For us it is the anointing of God. It gives direction to those willing to go out for Him, and it does not discriminate.
This is why a non-believer can hear the Word, act on it and receive the reward that a Christian sitting in the same room might miss. The anointing searches for willing vessels that are ready to obey the teachings of Jesus in order to receive the blessing they seek. It’s why the people wanted to kill Jesus in Luke 4 (v 28). They were not ready for the truth and wanted to throw him off a cliff, but they were unable to because the anointing was protecting your destiny in Christ today. That’s how powerful it is, and that is the anointing that dwells in the sons and daughters of God IN Jesus who have received the power of the Holy Spirit. Let’s let that anointing drive us and break the chains that have held us back from BEING who God wants us to be — individually and as a church.
What a glorious moment we shared this past weekend with Sulli B! He was already a champion-to-be. He just had to have the power of God unlocked in his life and the grace of Jesus put on display for all to see.
Now, he walks in the forgiveness and goodness of God with a brand new life! There is so much of that for so many people just waiting to be celebrated here. We have to live out and share the gospel with everyone in our orbit. We can’t just do church as normal. We must BE the church fulfilling our calling. It IS our LIFE, guided by devotion to Jesus and relationship rhythms that slow us down and make spaces in our lives for God to do what only He can do—we must let it transform the deepest parts of us to become like him, and invite others to follow Him.
