Where's the Fizz?
I've been studying the book of Acts lately and am super impressed by the boldness of the early church in its witnss for Christ. It was a group of dedicated Christians willing to sacrifice all (lives included) to serve the Lord. Comparing today's church, I see a major difference. It is like buying a coke at McDonald's only to discover the CO2 is out and the coke is flat. There is no Fizz. The early church was full of fizz as a result of complete surrender and the filling of the Holy Spirit. Could it be that believers today need more dedication to God and the proper guidance of Scripture combined with the power of the Spirit? I believe that would solve the problem.
