Publisher's Description

Exciting New Teaching from Bestselling Author and Bethel Church Leader Bill Johnson

Two realities are evident in today's broken world: Our culture is in desperate need, and our God is a miracle-working God. How do believers answer the world's cries for help in a way that exhibits God's heart of compassion?

According to bestselling author Bill Johnson, we simply embrace two additional realities: God's wisdom and his power. With biblical insight and extensive experience of seeing God's hand at work, Johnson offers keys to how believers can have the greatest impact on society. When we understand the long-term strategy of God's wisdom and the immediacy of his miracle-working power, we can create eternal impact and significance in the here and now, whether in our own lives and communities or in the farthest reaches of the world.

    Our Lives Are The Only Sermon Our Culture Hears and Sees

    Although Bill Johnson has been sharing these principles for a number of years, the principles in his new book, The Power That Changes the World, could prompt a mindset shift for many in the body of Christ.

    The book has many concepts, revelation, and wisdom worth pondering. For me personally, reading Johnsons view of King Solomon and Queen Sheba was life changing. However, the overarching message of the book is that as Christians and ministry, we have put the cart before the horse by trying to shape peoples behaviors without shaping the culture surrounding behaviors.

    To the disdain of many inside church walls, God gives clear instruction that we are to be the light of the worlda city set on a hill, not hidden. We are to be sharing the revelation of His nature and His ways in our communities. People do not know what God is like, and our lives may be the only sermon our culture hears and sees. Gods glory is perceived by others as we carry the blessings and gifts of God to bless others around us. Then, when we are seen by our communities as servants who have no agenda except to love, we are given access to the heart of our communities.

    So if we are not impacting the culture around us, our quest must be to find out why and embrace those principles that foster change and transformation. This will require gut-wrenching honesty and the power of God to redefine our own identity and behaviors according to the values of heaven. Johnson writes, Our obedience is often measured by our willingness to go against our own biases, no matter how spiritual they seem (39).

    Johnson offers a faith-filled view of our place and purpose in the world right now. When many people are just waiting to be raptured, Johnson pulls us back to the truth of Jesus command that we go forth to teach and disciple in the power of the Spirit. But it is going to look different than it has in the past.

    I was sent a copy of this book from Chosen publishers in exchange for an honest review.

    Impacting our Communities

    This book will challenge you to have a impact right where you live, in the areas in which you work and share community. Not just church. Actually, Bill shares that our greatest job might just be the influence we have on our communities outside the church walls with pre-believers.

    He gave me so much to think about as a teacher with influence in childrens lives. I love what he shares in the first chapter, When we are seen as servants who have no agenda except to love, we are given access to the heart of the community.

    Later he states, And wisdom is the key if we are to fully manifest the purpose of the God on earth in our lifetime.

    Wisdom. I have just finished reading through Proverbs and wisdom is so important. The only way for us to gain wisdom is to be in the Fathers presence. We must take time to do that. When we do we will see not only our life transformed but those around us too because of the love that overflows from us onto them.

    I could share so many more wonderful quotes from this book, but really you should just read it. It really is so good and Bill is such a good teacher, whether youre listening to him speak or reading one of his books.

    An e-copy of this book was given to me by the publisher through Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

    Encouragement to influence our community

    Christians sometimes concentrate on heaven but Johnson reminds us that we are instructed to pray that God's will be done here, now. He encourages us to be a transforming influence on our community.

    Some Christians think that influence has to be through politics or business. Johnson believes we should bring the Kingdom influence to every reach of society. Each of us has daily opportunities for transforming influence. That influence comes from intentional living.

    He shares how the church he pastors has been instrumental in transforming the attitude and value system of their city. Success in God's eyes is seen in the impact the message of the Kingdom has on how people think and live in my city, region and nation. They found that the more they served their city with no agenda other than that the Lord be glorified, the more the city opened up to the message they carried.

    This is an encouraging and convicting book. I realize that many Christians have not learned about God and His Kingdom well enough to influence themselves and the community in which they live. Johnson has very good suggestions about basic attitudes we are to have towards those in the community. One that struck me was valuing people before they are converted. Every individual has been made in the image of God and has been given gifts by Him. That attitude of honoring others is an important first step to influence.

    This book is a great challenge for us to impact our community. We can carry the blessing of God to others. We can share the gifts God has given us with others. We can reveal the nature of God to others. If that is what you would like to do, this book will encourage you.

    Food for thought: My assignment is to bring heaven to earth through my prayers and acts of radical obedience.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
