“Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles.” Acts 2:43
When is that last time you were awestruck at the work and presence of God? According to Acts 2 it was happening over and over in the hearts and minds of those believers (kept feeling awe) in that first New Testament Church. There is a diligence that is recognized in the attitudes and activities of these believers- God’s Word, genuine community, honest and engaging conversations with the Lord.
As more and more of our church body return to Bible Study and Worship, I see and sense awe in the countenance and the hearts of our members. Now would be the perfect time for each of us (and all of us) to recommit to be diligent to those spiritual disciplines and expressions of love and grace (listed in these 6 verses). We just might keep feeling a sense of awe at what the Lord is doing in and through our church!!
