In Acts 2, The Holy Ghost saturated a small company of 120 saints, imperfect, but committed, and they turned the world upside down. This model of the church is the only Biblical model and anything else is bound to fail. The world is full of church clubs, social groups, and self-help institutions, named by church names but powerless to redeem souls. These systems are turning to sociological and psychological ideas to empower the church, but the power is flesh power and can only place bandages on wounds of lost and hurting humanity. We desperately need a fresh “Book of Acts” experience in the 21st century church. Anything else will only continue the downward spiral the church world is already experiencing. The early church was a dynamo, but only because it was “His” church. We must become the kind of people who consistently announce, embody and demonstrate the kingdom of God.
