Matthew 4:17 (ESV)
“From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."

Resurgence can be thought of as something that was once strong and influential having then lost its place of influence, only then to experience a revival. The moment Jesus emerged from the waters of baptism, He put the gods of the world on notice: the Kingdom of the One True God was upon them, and their reign was coming to a close.

Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior recognize this monumental shift and now need to be actively enlisted in the changing of the guard. In other words, we who call ourselves His children must reclaim the holiness we have been called to and live out our lives in preparation for His return.

This means we must reassess our journey. Have we stayed on the Narrow Road or have we drifted to the many backroads offered by this world? Have we wandered so far off course that we do not even know where to start anymore? We have grown so accustomed to living under the grace of God that we no longer consider asking forgiveness as a big deal—after all, He’s forgiven me many times before, why change?

But we need to realize that when we compromise our morals, our values, and our integrity we have made deliberate choices that are in complete rebellion to God. Although grace and forgiveness are the very cornerstone of agape love, forgiveness is not God’s ultimate pleasure. What our Father loves is to see His children mature to the point of not yielding to the same sins of yesterday.

We must not compromise on the things which God has called us out to be as separate from the world. It is in this unyielding spirit where the resurgence of God’s people will make a difference in the darkness of today.

Seek your own resurgence and let the glory of God’s Light shine in you and through you so you can serve as a beacon to a lost and dying world; a world that is quickly running out of time.
