Dave over at Searching God’s Heart asked me to guest post about the topic of Spirit-led Meetings. Have you been part of a Spirit-Led Gathering? How do you know? So many people have different ideas about what a Spirit-led gathering is that it’s hard to know. Here’s a paragraph from the post:
Joy floods the room as everyone begins to glorify God. Several brothers surround the man and begin to pray for him. Plans are made for a baptism the next day, which interferes very little with everyone’s plans because most had planned to assemble together the next day anyways. The gathering goes late into the night as others share about the greatness of Christ, the worth of following Him despite the cost, and the imminence of His return. You leave late into the evening encouraged by the supernatural work that has obviously taken place.
I’d like to encourage you to jump over to Searching God’s Heart and read the rest of the post. This is the first in a series of three posts. Join Dave, his readers, and myself as we discuss the importance of churches being corporately led by the Holy Spirit.
UPDATE: You can see all three parts of this series. I will update the links as they come out:
Today, I’m introducing the Pursuing Glory Facebook Group. You can join by clicking the link and liking the page.
Now you may ask yourself, “Why should I join the Facebook Group when I follow the blog?”
That’s a great question. Here’s my take. Blogs are for discussion and interaction around a certain topic. Facebook is designed to build already existing relationships a little bit deeper. My hope is that those of you who come to the blog and really believe in what God is doing in the Earth in this generation would get to know each other a little bit better. Call it an apostolic christianity “green room” if you will.
My other hope is that we can use it as a place to gather like-minded bloggers and possibly coordinate blogging topics. So if you, like me, love writing about the kind of Christianity that embraces the lifestyle of the apostolic church this will be a place to gather and encourage each other.
I’ll leave you with a quote that sums up the reason behind the Facebook Group:
“Turns out that tribes, not money, not factories, can change our world, can change politics, can align large numbers of people.” -Seth Godin.
Come and join the tribe.
Also: Don’t forget, Monday I will post my review of Ross Rohde’s tremendously helpful book, Viral Jesus. Stay tuned.
