When you didn’t know God, you were slaves to things which are really not gods at all. But now you know God, or rather, God knows you. So how can you turn back again to the powerless and bankrupt principles of this world? Why do you want to become their slaves all over again?
The believers had a single purpose and went to the temple every day.
They were joyful and humble as they ate at each other’s homes and shared their food.
We pray to God that you won’t do anything wrong. It’s not that we want to prove that we’ve passed the test. Rather, we want you to do whatever is right, even if we seem to have failed.
The believers had a single purpose.
For that to happen, there had to be unity of vision.
But more than vision, they had to have a sense of mission.
Salvation belongs to the Lord.
Every day the Lord saved people, and they were added to the group.
Where do you go every day?
Do you go to work?
No, you take a day off to rest at least once a week.
Where do you go every day?
You go home.
To your family.
The believers are one family united in faith in God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
They went to the temple everyday.
What do you do at the temple?
You worship God.
You talk with your fellow believers.
It’s a family meeting.
Our modern world is so fractured, so hypnotized by the enemy into living a lie that we live lives of quiet and not-so-quiet desperation.
We need to get back to basics.
Get back to what works.
Practice the fundamentals over and over again until you can do it without thinking about it.
We need to love.
Especially the family of believers.
Revival is in the house.
Or more specifically, it’s in the house churches.
When we gather together, share our food and our lives together, something happens.
The body ministers to itself in love and power.
The revival won’t come from the stage or the pulpit.
Revival starts with us.
When God grabs a hold of your life and you live in obedience, things get moving.
The things that held you in bondage move out.
And God’s Spirit floods in.
Deliverance and discipleship are both birthed from the love of God.
God’s Spirit is invading the enemy’s territory.
And nothing can stand against.
Meet with God at the temple everyday.
Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.
You can’t hold an audience of strangers accountable to the sermon that’s preached.
We hold each other accountable to the Word of God.
Iron sharpens iron.
And so the words of a friend sharpen his neighbor’s wits.
We’re all in this together.
So let’s pull together.
Christ is the head of the Church.
Stand your ground.
The occupying force is here.
We are the forerunners of reformation.
Back to our roots.
The root of David.
Be the humble and obedient children of God.
Your Father in Heaven loves you and cares for you.
Nothing can separate you from His Love.
Blessings to you and yours this day.
In Jesus’ Name I pray.
