Should We Re-Intuitionize Church Meetings?
–Jesus established the church on Spirit-intuition. When Peter recognized Jesus as the Christ (the Messiah), Jesus said: “This was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.” And Jesus added: “On this rock I will build my church.”
–A reading of the book of Acts shows that the early church was highly intuitionized. We continually read how the Holy Spirit spoke directly to them and how they did what the Spirit told them to.
–Paul taught: ” For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.”
–Paul also described the early church as being intuitional when said: “When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation.”
–However, as the first Christ-followers died, intuitional church meetings were replaced with pastor-controlled, institutional, organized, scripted, and programmed church meetings.
??? So should we re-intuitionize the church? Yes! Jesus, help us to courageously obey the command of Your mother to the servants at the wedding at Cana: “Whatever He says to you, do it.”
One way to re-intuitionalize church meetings is to make them doer-sensitive.
–Doer-sensitive church — church meetings that allow people to do what the Spirit tells them to do, as they one another.
— Hearer-sensitive church — people have to sit and hear the same man speak week after week.
(“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” –book of James)
