The story so far…
Jesus has died, then three days later resurrected to full glory with God. Leaving the disciples alone, lost and uncertain of the future.
Reading: Acts 2
Acts 2 starts and finishes with the disciples being together.
At the start they are huddled together feeling lost and alone. Then the Holy Spirit falls in the very room where they are meeting, new power and passion takes over them, they start to speak in tongues. Chaos starts as they break out into the streets, people of different nationalities and languages start hearing the incredible message of Jesus Christ. At that moment Peter steps up and preaches to all those hearing and on that day three thousand people were added to the Church.
At the end of the chapter we see that the believers have devoted themselves to being together, praying and breaking bread. Everyone filled with awe and miraculous signs followed.
Our vision month series is entitled New Levels.
Taking our lives to brand new levels, of faith, expectancy and awe.
The disciples in this chapter have stepped up to a new level. The Holy Spirit has empowered them to go to their next level, but they didn’t stop meeting together.
We all need groups of similar faith based people, where we can learn God’s Word, pray and mature in the faith that God is calling us into.
How do we get to a new level?
We do it together!
- Helps us grow
- Reminds us we’re not alone
- Makes us stronger
- Gives us a bigger picture of God
Through Connect Groups, through faith based friendship groups, we can grow in faith as we meet together to pray, study, learn and lean on each other, based around the central focus of Christ.
Do yourself a favour and get connected!
