Do Something!

The promise has been fulfilled: the Spirit of God is among us, lighting a fire under us, shaking things up.

In his speech before the Athens city council (Acts 17:22-31), Paul cautioned the people about their worship of idols. Idols are things we make which obstruct our view of God. Things we make so important that they interfere with knowing God and loving God. And when that happens, God is unknown to us.

This can be a problem. It’s hard to do what’s pleasing to God if our interests, desires and resources are going elsewhere. Maybe even to the “idol” we’ve made more important than God.

Paul calls upon us to “change your hearts and lives.” Jesus called us to do the same. So did John the Baptist. They summons us to turn toward God, seek God’s will and change our lives. In other words, not just talk about it, but to do something.

During our Windswept journey, several opportunities to “do something” have been identified. Each of us has been invited to covenant with God in an hour a day of spiritual practices. Each of us has been called on to use the gifts and interests that God has given us to serve the body of Christ. Each of us has been invited to invite others to worship, learn and serve with this community of believers. And, each of us has been encouraged to take a realistic look at our financial giving - re-evaluate it and give it its proper place in our relationship with God.

The Spirit of God is among us. We are witnesses to the bold power the Spirit brings, and evidence of the Spirit’s fruitfulness is abundantly clear. It’s time for us to Do Something.
