The Daily Devocast brings you daily encouragement. Today’s devotional message The Worldwide Impact of the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit comes from volume VI of the Ante-Nicene Fathers.
Today’s reading comes from Arnobius of Sicca, an early Christian apologist who lived from 255 – 330 AD. It is said that he was converted to faith in Christ through a dream.
This selection on the evangelistic impact of God’s power being dispersed across the globe comes from volume VI of the Ante-Nicene Fathers.
“Christ’s virtues have been made manifest to you, along with that unheard-of power…that was used over the whole world by those who proclaimed Him. It has subdued the fires of passion and caused races, peoples, and nations that are most diverse in character to hasten with one accord to accept the same faith. For the deeds can be listed and numbered that have been done in India, as well as among the Seres, Persians, and Medes.” (Arnobius, c. 305, ANF 6.438)
Prayer: God we turn our eyes to heaven and cry out for another great Holy Spirit outpouring. Unlock all of the spiritual gifts available to our generation and make flowing in the supernatural a normal part of our daily Christian walk. Amen.
Action Step: I want you to spend some time today asking God to give you an understanding of what He wants to accomplish in this generation. Find a quiet place and ask the Holy Spirit to give you a clear picture of the work of God that is unfolding both outside your front door and across the globe. Ask God to show you the part you get to play in all of it. Be sure to write down any visions or anything you sense or feel God is telling you in your journal.
