If we meditate on Acts chapter 4 verse 31, I think we’re duty bound to say, then what does this mean for me? Let’s look at it. And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.

What does this mean for us? Are we speaking the Word of God with boldness? Am I? I don’t mean here on YouTube, I mean in my day to day life. Am I speaking the Word of God with boldness? Whether or not people want to hear it.

Is it bold to say, this is what I believe, but whatever you believe, that’s okay? Is it bold to say that to people that we know according to our faith are perishing, they’re running headlong into disaster?

I know there have been many moves of the Holy Spirit over the years, over the decades and the centuries. Do we need another move where the place in which we’re gathering, as brothers and sisters, as Christians, is shaken, and we are filled with the Holy Spirit. Because it’s only with that Holy Spirit filling us, that we can hope to speak the Word of God boldly, with authority, with power.

This meditation draws us back to God, draws us back to the Holy Spirit, draws us back to Jesus, the author of our faith, to say, help, please, our world is dying. We need you. We need your boldness and we need that power of the Holy Spirit.

Shall we do that? Or shall we just watch the world burn? Do we or do we not want to see our friends, our neighbours, our family in heaven with us when Jesus returns?

Oh Holy Spirit, I ask you to come and shake your church. Please fill us with that power, with that boldness, so that we can speak, so that we can reach this suffering, dying world, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
