Question: What would happen if church meetings were built on people stepping out in faith and sharing from their heart — instead of being built on people passively watching a highly programmed presentation?
Answer: God’s fire would fall and His Spirit would take control of the meeting transforming lives.
The body of Christ is a “royal priesthood.” Every Christ-follower is a priest, called to serve God and to minister to people. There are no spectators (whose only job is to sit quietly and listen) in the body of Christ. Church as usual sets people up to be spectators, however, Christ wants to fire people up to be passionate participants who actively speak out in worship meetings and spiritual warriors who release God’s love and purity in their day to day lives.
If you see a church
Beginning to obey
1 Corinthians 14:26;
You will soon see
An ekklesia aflame for God! (What’s an ekklesia?)
It’s time to trade our programs for God’s fire!
“Send the fire, send the fire, send the fire!
To burn up every trace of sin,
To bring the light and glory in,
The revolution now begin,
Send the fire today!”
