You go to church for worship. You sing the songs. You drop your offering or tithe in the plate. You listen to the sermon. And you go home much the same as when you arrived. Maybe for you, the two hours you spend in church every week feels like two hours of your life wasted. Church is just an institutional ritual, far from the dynamic, prayerful, powerful church of the New Testament. However, there is hope. Receive and experience life-changing spiritual growth through this devotional that offers a challenging, informative journey back to the heart of the early church. This compelling Bible study of the book of Acts examines the mission, the leadership, and the lifestyle of the early church, with the premise that God intended for the body of Christ to be exciting and dangerous, not fixed, bored and apathetic. Through twelve weekly lessons, Carrying on the Mission of Jesus makes the case that the church is to be an alternative form of community, living in grace, service, love and compassion, and transforming the community around it. If you have ever felt disillusioned, disconnected, or unsure of your destiny in Christ, this study will help connect you back to the heart of God and to the purpose and nature of the church and those who comprise it. Carrying on the Mission of Jesus is not a safe book; it is only for those who have a genuine desire to be radical, to see a revival of Holy Spirit power, prayer, missional motivation, evangelism, and clear purpose in the church, in their lives, and in the community around them. It is for those who want to bridge the gap between what the church is now, and what the church used to be.
