Jesus Revolution
The Jesus Movement was a Christian revival that began in the late 1960s and lasted into the 1970s in the United States. It was a grassroots movement that grew out of the counterculture of the time, which was marked by a rejection of traditional values, political and social unrest, and experimentation with drugs. The response of the established church to the Jesus Movement was mixed. Some churches welcomed the movement and embraced its members, while others viewed it with suspicion or outright hostility. Here, I want our goal to be finding out what we need to do, to embrace the lost, and to draw them into the church as a loving and whole body of disciples.

As a Christian, a true child of God, we WILL experience an shift and a transformation in who we are

How we think
How we speak
How we walk
Our attitudes
Our meditations
Our desires
We will be NEW. We are not “old sinners, saved by grace”, we are NEW CREATIONS in CHRIST.
- The perception is the difference.
- One embraces the old while reaching for the new
When and where do we evangelize?

Our aim is the save sinners…
“Brethren, do something; do something; DO SOMETHING. While Committees waste their time over resolutions, do something. While Societies and Unions are making constitutions, let us win souls. Too often we discuss, and discuss, and discuss, while Satan only laughs in his sleeve. It is time we had done planning, and sought something to plan. I pray you, be men of action all of you. Get to work, and quit yourselves like men.

Old Suvorov’s idea of war is mine: ‘Forward and strike! No theory! Attack! Form column! Fix bayonets, and charge right into the very center of the enemy.’

Our one aim is to save sinners, and this we are not merely to talk about, but to effect in the power of God.”

Charles H. Spurgeon, An All-Round Ministry: Addresses to Ministers and Students (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 1900/1960), 42-43.

The importance of community and fellowship among believers
- First it provides a sense of belonging and connection.
- We were created for relationship and community,
We are called to help one another with our burdens.
Second, it provides opportunities for spiritual growth and discipleship.
- They are able to learn from one another and build one another up in the faith
- Providing support and encouragement during difficult times.
Holding each other accountable.
1 Corinthians 5
Challenging one another to grow
Thirdly, community and fellowship provide opportunities for evangelism and outreach.

How do you deepen your prayer life?
Scriptures on Prayer and Worship
God's call to seek justice and love mercy.
- Show integrity and do the right thing because it is the right thing.
- Not only show mercy, but the author here said LOVE mercy.
- Walk humbly before God.
Before we can talk to Men about God… we must prepare by talking to God about Men.
· This means preparing our hearts for what ever God has in store.
· This means setting aside some if not all our thoughts and desires about what church needs to look or feel like
· This means reaching the lost at any cost.
· This means being uncomfortable.
· This means working harder.
· This means sacrificing our ideas and traditions at the foot of the cross and exchanging them for HIS ways.
This is what will cause a Jesus Revolution in our church and community today!

Showing them Jesus, and not the church will ultimately lead them to a life changing relationship with Christ.

Complete Works of E M Bounds

The tireless compassion of this man E. M. Bounds, who would spend hours each day in intercessory prayer, continued to the end of his life.
"At last," he said, "I have found a man that prays.I shall never let him go.He drew me to him with hooks of steel."

Tithe and Offering

2 Corinthians 9:7 KJV Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. God's people have always been characterized by giving, but the way they've given has changed over time.  Giving is an important aspect of the Christian life. After all, Luke records that Jesus himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35).  At Northside, we want to encourage all members to pray about giving and give as God leads them.
