Love is not taught by a sermon or a lesson. Love is caught when hearts are in Spirit-led connection.
Church — Spirit-led assembly required! A church meeting should be a spiritual people-mover — connecting people to God and to one another.
In this dark world, millions of churches are without power. Perhaps a church meeting should be a work crew in which everyone present is working to restore power by actively hearing and obeying the directions of the Crew Chief, the Holy Spirit — not a crowd content to merely sit and passively watch one man talk.
Should a church service be program-driven or Spirit-driven? Is a church service auto parts? Or is it a car?
–Various auto parts on a shelf are not a car. To produce a car the right parts must be assembled in the right way.
–Perhaps various members of Christ’s body passively sitting in a Sunday morning meeting, also need to be assembled: connected one to another, heart-to-heart — freely allowed to openly show and tell what God is doing in their lives. Organic church requires Spirit-led assembly.
Church asks people to listen & leave. But what if we expected people to verbally participate & perceive God’s presence?
Hidden hearts cannot connect.. At The Salvation Army Berry Street (225 Berry St., Nashville, 37207, Sun. mornings @ 10:45), regular people (like you) are allowed to share from the heart about what God has done (and is doing) in their lives. And strong connections are made!
