Last week we discussed revival – the moving of God into full control of our lives, families and church.
Our Bible Study included, “A New Environment,” or the changes that God makes. Another area was “A New Enthusiasm,” after Acts Chapter two in which God causes us to be passionate about His work.
I read a little note several years ago about a honey bee. It is not the length of the stinger, but the enthusiasm the bee puts behind it!
We need to pray for God to give us some enthusiasm about His work! We want to put some action in the book of Acts. Notice these three Actions in Acts:
- Jesus Goes Up—Acts 1:10-11
…why stand ye gazing up into heaven?
It almost like the Word of God is declaring, “Don’t just stand here, Go to work! Jesus is coming back!”
- Holy Ghost Comes Down—Acts 2:1-4
…they were all filled with the Holy Ghost.
God will give us the power to carry out our earthly assignments. This is the power to be in this world, but not of this world.
- Christians Go Out—Acts 2:42-47
…there were added unto them about three thousand souls. …they continued steadfastly.
Doctrine is the study of the Word of God.
Fellowship shows that they had to have the support of each other in common purpose and encouragement.
Breaking of Bread together is taking time for each other and taking time to know each other while sharing a meal.
Prayers, the power for the Action in the Book of Acts is found in the Power of Prayer.
Let’s keep working and praying together for revival!
You are loved.
