35: Calling for an Awakening | David Bryant

Reflection is needed to be aware of what path we are on. We can easily find ourselves unaware of being off track when we lack reflection. Essentially, we’d be sleepwalking and moving on autopilot. In the walk with Christ, Christian believers should be moving with full attention and intention. Today, we witness a calling for an awakening.

Over the past 40 years, David Bryant has been defined as a “messenger of hope” and a “Christ proclaimer” to the Church throughout the world. Formerly a pastor, minister-at-large with the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, president of Concerts of Prayer International (COPI), and chairman of America’s National Prayer Committee, today David provides leadership to Proclaim Hope! whose mission is to foster and serve a nationwide Christ-awakening movement. 

For decades, David played a widely visible role in the emergence of an unprecedented, worldwide prayer movement by building on citywide mass prayer rallies; organizing national and international conferences; creating training videos, seminars, and manuals; developing leadership coalitions; mentoring of younger leaders; and sharing his message by radio, television, and podcasts. Currently, David oversees the website ChristNOW.com, which provides hundreds of free resources all focused on the person of Christ.

Listen as David discusses why Christian believers need to be reintroduced to Jesus again; similar to his book, Christ Is NOW! 7 Groundbreaking Keys to Help You Explore and Experience the Spectacular Supremacy of God’s Son Today. David says that we use the right words, but we are not focused on the right person. He talks about taking time to have a moment of silence with Christ. David explores the true purpose of the relationship with Christ and the difference between the “Centrality of Christ” and the “Supremacy of Christ”.

Most Christians today don’t think about who Christ is now in the present day. What is the relationship? What is the purpose? Join today’s conversation where Christian believers can be reintroduced to Christ.
