I believe while I type this article Christianity is making huge progress in China and South Africa and Mississippi. I believe brave Christians may find women clutching to their children beneath bridges in New Jersey and Mexico City. It could very well be there are prisoners in Uganda and Detroit who are about to make terrific decisions to consider Jesus as their master.

Most likely there are teens in Indiana and Seattle doing homework across their beds as they listen to A Cappella CDs and the Spirit of God is sinking into their hearts. It could be that in the next thirty days a baby will be born who will become the President of the U.S. in 2052. There is a strong chance that within the next two hours a family who is about to part harsh ways find reason to abort bailing out.

It's not far-fetched to wonder if the Word is marvelously affecting Dublin and Durant before day breaks again. The imagination can wonder if there are couples in tears in Canada and Chicago as they make risky plans to leave their families and careers so the husbands can become students in a preaching school. Great are the possibilities that saying "I'm really sorry" and "I must apologize" are reversing tattered relationships in New Orleans and Calcutta.

Missions are effectively advancing in Taiwan and Duluth because of special days of giving back in 1946 and again in 1978. Angels may be applauding simple and sweet good deeds of gentle souls in Amsterdam and Panama City. Yielding to the name of Jesus may be developing in Liberia and Iran.

My point is exhaustively unimaginable. If the earth could not contain all the books which could be written about Jesus in his day, what in the world could be exaggeratedly said about the amount of books it would take to report all God is presently doing in the body of Christ now?
