How may people should be allowed to talk in a church meeting? Did God design church meetings to be 1-man monologue? Or mosaic of many messages? Perhaps we need tag team time — time for taking turns talking in church meetings.
–The Bible says that instead of being confined to a one man monologue or a single soliloquy, we can all take turns talking in church meetings.
–“For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged.” –1 Corinthians 14:31
Are church meetings like capped oil wells, clamped down on Christ-filled capabilities; captured and contained by human control?
–I think so! Maybe it’s time to blow the caps off and let God’s geysers gush!
We are offered a weekly man’s message, but God wants us to maintain conscious contact with Him!
A tantalizing talk will leave you empty unless God, Himself, rouses up your soul!
“Be still, and know that I am God.” –Psalm 46:10
Some people like to gather with others under the influence of wine and other drinks and unwind together.
–I like to gather with others under the influence of the new wine of the Holy Spirit and stir up spiritual passion in one another.
“Last fall my wife and I had the privilege of visiting a church in Nashville, TN on a Sunday morning. The entire service consisted of one testimony after another. The pastor delivered a very short message then turned his microphone over to anyone who wished to testify or bring forth an insight from scripture. Instead of a single sermon delivered by the pastor, we heard a dozen sermons about living the Spirit life on the streets, at work, in homes, schools and neighborhoods.” –testimony from a first-time visitor at The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., Nashville, TN 37207 meeting on Sundays at 10:45 am.
