Like the gathering of dry wood for kindling, Jesus Christ, during His time on Earth gathered His church from dry, unrooted places. He began to call together the poorest, most desperate people He could find. Even His own words showed us He did “not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
This is the beginning of the church: the dry and weary people of God, having watched their Savior ascend into heaven, experience the spark of The Holy Spirit.
In [insert year], Red Rocks Worship, having heard of what God was doing in India, went and explored it for themselves. How could such a small group of people have reached over 800,000 souls in such a short amount of time?
What they found there was not a foreign nation filled with people different from themselves, but rather brothers and sisters sharing their same hope in Jesus Christ. India is currently experiencing a raging fire of faith sweeping through their nation, not due to some new innovation, but from the faith of a few. The simplicity of those moments in India felt like they were ripped right from the book of Acts.
“It’s easy for me to think that America is the only place people worship Jesus,” says Jake. “That this is the only way that we do church. No! Jesus is moving all over this world and it looks like a bunch of different things.”
Inspired by what they saw in India, Red Rocks came home ready to write new words and melodies based on the simplicity of the gatherings they were a part of there. The idea that a few people wholly focused on the truth of the gospel, could reach hundreds of thousands of dry souls with a single spark of truth.
