The Gospel is being preached and the Kingdom is being established on the earth! This past weekend over 100,000 attendees flooded the Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California to be a part of the SoCal Harvest. This year the SoCal Harvest celebrated its 30th year, making it one of the longest standing crusades in America.
Crusades, like the SoCal Harvest, are vital to what God is doing on the earth today. These crusades feature Christian artists, special guest, and present the Gospel in a culturally relevant way. In Acts 17:23 Paul uses the Athenian culture to confront their ignorance and preach the Gospel in reference to their statute “to the unknown god“.
Speaking to the heart of the matter
In Mark 2:17 Jesus proclaims, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” The Gospel message brings life and this is exactly what happened at this year’s SoCal Harvest.
Greg Laurie preached messages that addressed suicide, fear, anxiety, and worry. Each night ended with the truth that Jesus Christ is the answer to these struggles. Jesus Christ is the Way out. He is the Truth that sets us free and He brings life to everyone and everything He touches.The message of Jesus Christ went forth and the Kingdom of God grew by 8677 in Anaheim, California this weekend!
Responding to the Gospel
The Gospel is not just a good story – it is life changing! The truth of the Gospel transforms lives and brings dead things to life. The Gospel is the powerful, wonderful truth that reconnects humankind to the heart of the Father.
Romans 10:14 – How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
As believers, you and I are called to preach the Gospel. We don’t have to be standing on the platform preaching at a crusade. The Gospel is relevant any time, any where, to any one. Let’s partner with the Holy Spirit and share it in our neighborhoods, cities, and to the ends of the earth!
