Various Scripture

The Spirit Filled Church

Pastor Ryan shares about the four key elements of the early church — and our call to live those out today.

Scripture: Acts 2:42-47

God’s “no” is His “YES”

There is a reason for quarrels and conflicts. It is our pride and envy from within US. We get jealous and judge and we separate ourselves from God who is the judge. We need to let God be God. WE need to submit, resist, humble, etc. We are NOT to do something so we can experience God’s YES for us.

Scripture: James 4.1-12

Life Groups

Everyone knows humans naturally seek out relationships and community. We see that in the common phrases and taglines on church websites like, “We get together because we can’t make it alone”, in the recent explosion of social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) and even in gangs!

Our problem with community isn’t that we don’t know we need or want it – that’s obvious. A study from the University of Michigan or Facebook can tell you that. If we’re all honest – perhaps we’re actually scared of it ending up looking like the early church in Acts 2:42-47.

Here, in this description of the very first followers of Jesus, we see how Christianity started, exploded and was sustained in and through what we would call, “Life Groups.”

The early church didn’t grow at an explosive rate because they had Billy Graham preaching, the Bonner’s singers leading music and perfect looking, comfortable sanctuary chairs. They naturally attracted those around them because they were ‘learning, loving and living in authentic, tight-knit community.’

In short, they were fulfilling God’s design for all us – whether a follower of Jesus or not – to do ‘life together’…to be in a Life Group.
