God sees YOU as a potential champion! Me? Yes, you. You have a mandate from God. God has called you to spread this Gospel to the world. You might say, "Well, I've done a lot of bad things in my life. What could Jesus possibly want with me?" You're exactly what Jesus died for. You're the reason He died. In fact, Jesus died while you were yet a sinner.

He didn't die when you got better. He didn't die for you when you straightened up your life. He died for you when you were absolutely rotten to the core. But He loved you. That's agape love. The God kind of love.

When Jesus looks at people, He doesn't just see flesh and blood. He doesn't see black faces, white faces, red faces, yellow faces. He sees people who are potential champions. He sees people who are scattered without direction in their life. And yet, He loves them so much that He says, "Pray that laborers will be sent across their path."

The Bible reveals to us that it is the will of God that every man be saved and come into the knowledge of the truth. God wants all people to be saved, but who does He want to be a laborer sent into their lives to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ? YOU.

Once you catch the vision of seeing people the way Jesus saw them, you'll never be able to look at another person the same way. You'll see them differently. You're not going to be able to stand in the streets of your city and watch the crowds go by and see what you saw before. You're going to see people who need direction. People who need Jesus.

It is vitally important that you catch the vision of what Jesus sees. Catch the vision of how Jesus responds to people and how He reacts to people. He was moved with compassion.

I can see God literally taking cities and nations. How can that happen? By you and me catching the vision and becoming intercessors, and spiritual warriors. By us being willing to stand in the gap. By us letting Satan know that he's not in charge of our city. Catch the vision, become an intercessor, and then become passionate about winning your city!

Author Biography

Jerry Savelle
Web site: Jerry Savelle Ministries International
Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God's help. While he considered himself a "nobody," when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God's faithfulness and Dr. Savelle's "no quit" attitude, his life is totally different than it was thirty-eight years ago.
