A Daily Thunder Series with Leslie Ludy
Originally aired January 2021
Romans 12:11 tells us, “Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.” This verse literally means to remain spiritually hot, like a boiling liquid or red-hot flame. But for most Christians living in our busy and self-focused culture, spiritual apathy is often the norm. In this series Leslie highlights key Biblical principles for replacing mediocrity with lasting spiritual passion.
Part 1: Gaining God's Heart for the Modern Church
Many of us have become disturbed as we see modern Christianity steeped in mediocrity and spiritual apathy. It’s easy to assume that God is so fed up with the Church today that He’s given up on it. But in reality, His love for the Church is as great as it has ever been. He desires repentance, revival, and restoration to Himself. In this session Leslie presents a Biblical understanding of God’s heart and vision for modern Christianity, and how we as believers can become part of His solution for the Church today.
Part 2: Gaining God's Heart for Revival
It is easy to feel helpless as we see the world around us rapidly heading toward darkness. But as Christians, we are not helpless against the forces of sin and evil. In fact, through Christ we can become catalysts for amazing change in our homes, communities and country. True change doesn’t happen through human effort or political strategy, but through the power our mighty God. In this inspiring session, Leslie shares practical ways that each of us can help pave the way for revival in our world, starting right where we are today.
Part 3: Gaining Lasting Spiritual Passion
In this session Leslie unpacks Biblical keys to both personal and corporate revival among modern believers, walking through three key spiritual principles to overcoming personal apathy and cultivating a passionate devotion to Jesus Christ. Spiritual passion is not meant to be an emotional high that comes and goes, but a constant, supernatural outflow of the life of Christ within us. This session shows us not only why spiritual fervor is so critical in the Christian life, but also how to exchange laxness for spiritual fire that doesn’t fade.
