Today I want to give you a place to start your week. It’s Monday and in the wake of a great weekend and a workweek ahead, sometimes you just need a “kickstart” to get focused. So grab some coffee let’s start a great week together.
We continued our current series in our Kfirst community that focuses on the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. And our focus turned to Acts 3:1-10 as we desired to “Break the Fourth Wall.” (Click here for yesterday’s notes.)
The “Fourth Wall” in both theater and literature, was the invisible wall that separated the cast from the audience. It was a way to pay attention to your current cast and storyline while tuning out the audience the audience in front of you. The challenge from Sunday was to NOT live life with ANY wall/separation between you and the Holy Spirit. We believe God wants to empower the ordinary opportunities of our lives to create extraordinary moments.
We looked at 2 of the attributes of God’s presence:
- The omnipresence of God.
- Where you are, there He is.
- The manifest presence of God.
- The demonstration of God coming closer in, through, and upon us.
In Acts 3, we see Peter and John stepping out in the “manifest” presence of God and healing a man lame in both feet. How did they move in the power of God? It’s as simple as posturing their lives to engage in the presence of God. We identified three simple ways to do this on an every day basis:
- Actively bring our lives under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
- Consistently deposit the word of God into our lives.
- Frequently spend time in His presence.
This week, would you purpose to take time each day to posture yourself in the presence and allow the manifest presence of God to fill you. And as He fills you, step out in obedience and allow him to do the extraordinary through you.
BTW: Here’s the song we’ve introduced during the series!
