As we begin to think about joining the Holy Spirit for a spiritual awakening, we need to take origins into consideration. What did the Holy Spirit do at Pentecost that is essential today if we are to become a community that blesses?
When the Holy Spirit filled the disciples and brought salvation to 3000 souls at Pentecost the initial response was devotion of the community to the apostles' teaching. What expressions of this devotion are found in a community filled with the Holy Spirit today?
One of the commitments that a Spirit-filled community makes is to live in fellowship with one another. What is fellowship? How is it expressed?
The Holy Spirit led the church in Acts to devote themselves to the breaking of bread. This commitment was to more than just eating for sustenance. It was a beautiful expression of community.
