BOTTOM LINE: We Are Empowered by the Spirit to Look Like Jesus.
QUESTION: Do You look like Jesus? Does our Church look like Jesus?
DOWNLOAD: One of the unique characteristics of the Early Church is that when you lay them over top of the life of Jesus, they are so similar. Does our church/life look like Jesus? Do people thirst for Jesus becuase their life has collided w/ our life?
1. They had PURITY from WITHIN.
2. They had RESPECT from WITHOUT.
3. They had POWER from ABOVE.
APPLICATION: So here’s the question … do we have a longing to be a part of the MISISON of God? Do we hunger and thirst for the Holy Spirit to fill us … so that we can go and share the Gospel w/ those who need to hear? Does our heart truly break for what breaks God’s heart?We don’t get another lifetime … this is the only one … and every day and every moment matters … and it starts w/ you and I chasing PURITY in our lives … and PURITY in our personal lives will allow us to gather together as a community in Unity … all gathering not for our own MISSION but grateful for what God’s done in our own life, and excited and honored about being a part of what God’s doing in this world … and in order for those around us to truly thirst for a real, sincere, authentic, genuine relationship w/ God … we have to ask … do we look like Jesus? Because what we see in the early church … looks just like Jesus!
