Someone said to me recently that the whole leadership team seem different lately. That we all seem much more “upwardly connected”. I have to say that is true – we are all feeling expectant, personally challenged by the Holy Spirit in our walk with God, and sensing this is a time of preparation.
Recently we have been experiencing a move of the Spirit in our Sunday morning service. This has shown itself in some of the members of our congregation being physically affected by the Holy Spirit. I thought it might be helpful to reflect on what the Bible tells us about such events.
I love to worship! This is not a surprising statement if you think about it as God created us to worship Him. I have recently reread a book by Darlene Zcheche entitled ‘Extravagant Worship’ She says that ‘Our worship pleases the Lord. There is a real strength when believers bring a corporate offering of praise to God in our church’. Corporate worship can be so powerful!
