In his final session, David highlights a number of very practical implications for all we’ve learned in this journey about who Christ is right now, reigning and active in our lives and in our world.
Suggestions are made that can transform individual lives as well as the growth and ministry of churches. Above all, David lays out a unique but easily-implemented strategy for fostering and serving Christ Awakenings in individual lives and Christ Awakening movements in churches and communities.
His final appeal is for all participants to become what David calls “Messengers of Hope” for the rest of their lives. And in doing so, make the most strategic contribution any of us can make to spreading the fame and extending the reign of Christ...now.

Video 9:1 – Why should this new vision of Christ change me forever?
"Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed. That, however, is not the way of life you learned..." - Ephesians 4:14-20
