There was once a community of Believers who were so totally devoted to God that their life together was charged with the Spirit’s power. In that band of Chist-followers, believers loved each other with a radical kind of love. They took off their masks and shared their lives with one another. They laughed and cried and sang and served together in authentic Christian fellowship.

Acts 2 tells us that this community of Believers, this Church… offered unbelievers a vision of life that was so beautiful it took their breath away. It was so bold, so creative, so dynamic that they couldn’t resist it. Verse 47 tells us that ‘the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved'”    

(from Bill Hybel’s book Courageous Leadership)

Questions…

Where has that beauty gone?
Will the Church ever see that power again?
