ESTABLISHING CHURCHES 4 - THE POWER AND PRESENCE OF GOD

JAKE STIMPSON | CHURCH-PLANTING | CHURCH | COMMUNITY | BOOK OF ACTS | POWER | HOLY SPIRIT

Describing the early church, Acts 2:43 says, “And awe came upon every soul.” Time and again, the New Testament applies the same words to the early church: awe, wonder, amazement, astonishment… Compared to everything seen until that point, the church was different, the church was otherworldly. Because the church was filled with the very real power and presence of God. From the very beginning, God’s Spirit and power dwelt in His church. It is meant to be no different today.

Does something about the American church experience seem odd to you? Like it’s so different from what we see in the New Testament? If you’ve ever felt like that, you’re not alone. Jesus’ heart for the church was not to have a weekly religious meeting but to have a community of radical love, unity, and devotion to the Word of God, a community that would bring healing and restoration to a broken world.

The New Testament picture of church is more than a building with a steeple and stained glass windows. It’s more than a weekly religious service. It’s a life-changing, devil-stomping, sin-crushing community of love.

What do you think of when you hear the word “church”? Do you envision an old building with a steeple and stained glass windows? Or maybe you think of an event that takes place Sunday mornings… But church is meant to be so much more for you than just a building or an event. God is doing something new in the world today as His people cry out for the real life of the church!
