I like the following from today’s study: “His (the Holy Spirit) coming produced a transformation in the lives of ordinary people, who became extraordinary people doing extraordinary things in an extraordinary way.”
Yet, as Selwyn goes on to say (below)Â – today, how many times have you seen ordinary followers of Jesus do extraordinary things?
“The two main accusations which were directed at the early Christians – ‘They’re drunk’ and ‘They’re mad’ – are rarely heard today. Most modern-day Christians do not come under this dark suspicion, though this is hardly to our credit.”
Do you think that today’s Church is trying too hard to be relevant to non-Christians that we have become too fearful to fall under any negative accusation by being different?
