Getting The Zeros Right

In his book,

Jesus Continued: Why The Spirit Inside You Is Better than Jesus Beside You,

Pastor J. D. Greear describes the days of unceasing prayer leading up to Pentecost, the power of Peter’s preaching, and the results of the Gospel at Pentecost. He notes that they prayed for ten days, preached for ten minutes, and three thousand people were saved. Then he adds, “Today, we shuffle the zeroes around: we pray for ten minutes, preach for ten days … and only three people get saved. What a difference the placement of those zeroes can make!
