It is their desire to see the purpose and will of God to be done. Both are spirit-filled and not ashamed of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. They want to see many come to the Lord and experience His great power. They are trying to raise a generation on fire for God so they can be used by God.
“I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:1-2) NKJV.
