See The Holy Spirit Work A Room!

The Holy Spirit can work a room, moving from person to person, lighting faces and enlightening hearts and minds.  That’s what He wants to do when we Christians gather for worship.  All we have to do is loosen up our human control and let people respond to the Spirit’s promptings.

When the Holy Spirit is working a room, no human being will be directing the meeting or demanding our attention.  Once you have experienced the Spirit working a room, you won’t be satisfied with anything less.  Scenes on screens, or the next text, cannot compare to the amazing joy and peace that the living, resurrected Jesus Christ releases to flow through humble human hearts as He freely moves in a gathering of believers.

So, who is “called to preach”? God’s call is to all: Surrender your will to Jesus; follow and obey Him daily; consistently preach the Good News about Him with both words and actions as you show and tell what God has done!. (This is called “the priesthood of the believer” and is one of the doctrines of the Protestant Reformation. See 1 Corinthians 14:31.)

William Booth, co-founder of The Salvation Army,  put it this way:  “‘Not called!’ did you say? ‘Not heard the call,’ I think you should say. Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear Him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell, and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father’s house and bid their brothers and sisters, and servants and masters not to come there. And then look Christ in the face, whose mercy you have professed to obey, and tell him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish his mercy to the world.”

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
