We Need Another Whoosh
Act 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
This entering of the Spirit of God into their prayer meeting was:
Sudden - "suddenly"
Unexpected - Nothing was as it was before. There had been a crucifixion and resurrection. They had no idea what to expect next. Jesus, they knew, the Holy Spirit was another story.
Unprecedented - Nothing like this had ever transpired, but oh, what a welcome and needed event!
Powerful - "Mighty" It changed everything.
Complete - "It filled all the house where they were sitting" "They were all filled"
Unfortunately, many churches, many people within those churches, are content with the same old liturgical deadness. They are perfectly content with their song, song, prayer, song tradition, unwilling to allow the Spirit of God to bring His life-giving freshness to their services. How sad!
How long since you experienced the "whooshing" of the Holy Spirit in your church services? Perhaps it is time to get unified and pray, pray, pray for Him to move upon you!
