January 4, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional :- DAILY CORPORATE FELLOWSHIP AND DAILY EVANGELISM – ACTS 2:46
The next daily activity you must carry out to unlock the power of daily Christianity is corporate fellowship and daily evangelism.
It becomes so easy for Christians to fall into sin, to backslide, and to change their commitment because of the absence of daily practices. The Bible recorded that the Church in the Acts of Apostles continued (in fellowship) daily, and that was why they had such power. The devil has turned this into weekly gathering in our generation and even attacks the time that we spend in God’s presence now.
When I started ministering as a Pastor, one of the greatest attacks that the enemy first launched against the ministry was to get people to say that we spent too much time in Church. So I went to ask the Lord: “Do I change? Is it good to listen to the people?” And God told me that He did not say the people should form the minister for Him but that the minister should form the people for Him and this is where ministers started making mistakes.
If it was today’s Church that brought the pattern they used in the Acts of Apostles, how easy do you think it would have been to do Church daily? We need to find out what they were doing daily, not only in the Temple but also from house to house. No wonder they worked in such awareness and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. The devil knows that if he lets this continue from generation to generation, the Church would take over the world.
As the Apostles were doing spiritual activities daily, the Lord was adding such as were being saved to the Church daily (Acts 2:47). That means they were doing evangelism daily also but the devil got us to start reducing our daily spiritual activities.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, awaken in me an understanding of the importance of daily fellowship with fellow Christians. Help me to tell others about you when and where I can. Amen.
