The Times Are Urgent
God Is on the Move
Now Is the Moment to …
ask God to ignite his fire in your soul!
Pastor Jim Cymbala believes that Jesus wants to renew his people–––to call us back from spiritual dead ends, apathy, and lukewarm religion.
Cymbala knows the difference firsthand. Thirty–five years ago his own church, the Brooklyn Tabernacle, was a struggling congregation of twenty. Then they began to pray … God began to move … street–hardened lives by the hundreds were changed by the love of Christ … and today they are more than ten thousand strong.
The story of what happened to this broken–down church in one of America’s toughest neighborhoods points the way to new spiritual vitality in the church and in your own life. Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire shows what the Holy Spirit can do when believers get serious about prayer and the gospel. As this compelling book reveals, God moves in life–changing ways when we set aside our own agendas, take him at his word, and listen for his voice.
This is an inspiring and challenging book. Cymbala is frank and bold in his cry to the church to be people of prayer, to be dependent on God and His ways rather than conjuring up man-made, ineffective alternatives. The book begins with the story of how Cymbala and his family came to be at Brooklyn Tabernacle, and the way in which God is at work in and through that church is threaded throughout the chapters. The story of Brooklyn Tabernacle is an illustration, though, rather than the main point of the book, as Cymbala explains why and how to be people who call on The Lord in prayer. It is empassioned, honest and winsome. I sometimes wished for a little more in depth scriptural evidence for his points, but I think he writes engagingly and biblically. He is clearly a man of God who knows The Lord and longs for others to know Him more and more through prayer. Even if you don't agree with every aspect of Cymbala's take on church, the message of needing to pray and asking God to be at work is one we all need to hear and one which can be applied to every church context.
