A powerful image of a culture-transforming Church is revealed in Acts 2 after the Day of Pentecost. The attention of the believers was focused first and foremost on the Lord, not on an unredeemed culture.
The Early Church devoted themselves to the Apostle’s teaching and fellowship all the while surrounded by a sense of awe created by a miraculous demonstration of God’s presence. It was that evidence that drew the culture to the message of the Gospel, not a watered-down ministry of accommodation and a faith void of signs, wonders, and miracles. And as a result of that focus, “…each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved” (Acts 2:47).
Maybe that is the needed recalibration taking place in this time of social isolation – a return to our original blueprint.
