Summary of Day 2 Session 1

You attitude in welcoming others and Jesus will make a big difference.Going to church or meeting people won't change anything. Jesus coming in your life bring supernatural work of God in your life.Sitting and listening at Lord's feet makes a big difference.You presence at Lord's feet is more important that what you give.Many have Jesus at home but their life is distracted.Complaining shows our distraction and lack of sitting at Jesus feet.When somethings ends in joy then God takes glory and victory.When something end in fight and strife then enemy has taken victory.Jesus will never become a problem after being invited.

But death and resurrection of Lazarus proved that Jesus can raise the dead.People who have experienced resurrection power should be different.
