The message of the Church Empowered in Acts speaks to the power that comes from the Holy Spirit leading us to act in courage and selflessness. The way of Christ's kingdom. It's the way of power. It comes through being confronted by the truth of the gospel, and it comes when God's people turn their ears toward truth, and with hands open say, 'I'm yours God.' To spiritually thrive is to be a part of a community where the power of God is manifested, the truth of God is heralded, and the people of God are convicted. As followers of Christ, we must walk both in the power of the Holy Spirit and focus our lives on the truth of His Word. We are not perfect, and we will make mistakes, but that is what the church is for - to encourage, challenge, rebuke and to spur on.
