The birth of Jesus is Luke 2 carries in it a demonstration of the failure of religion. There was none who would answer the knock at the inn and give up their spot to Mary and Joseph. An unprecedented wonder was about to be performed, and the people of God were unwilling to give of themselves. When we look at ourselves and our modern institutional religion, how many wonders have we missed because of our attitude? What if they had opened the door? Will we do so in our generation? Now is the time to call out to God, to repent, and the rededicate our selves, our families, our communities, and our nation to the Lord. There is a cry in the hearts of the people, and doors are opening. Pastor Carter Conlon has been invited to lead a meeting on the 400th anniversary of the landing on Plymouth Rock to press in to God, to call upon the name of Jesus, and to pray for wonders in this generation. Let your faith be stirred. Let 2020 be a year of wonders!
“Is this not the fast that I have chosen:
To loose the bonds of wickedness,
To undo the heavy burdens,
To let the oppressed go free,
And that you break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out;
When you see the naked, that you cover him,
And not hide yourself from your own flesh?
Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
And your righteousness shall go before you;
The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’
