Suppose Believers gathered today in the same manner of openness as those early Saints? Would the Body of Christ enjoy the same blessings today?

"Now the Lord is the Spirit;

and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

But we all, with unveiled face,

beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord,

are being transformed into the same image

from glory to glory,

just as by the Spirit of the Lord,"

2 Corinthians 3'17-18.


Prayer. Heavenly Father, thank you for all your abundant love and grace to your people. Thank you, too, for the refreshing ministry of the Holy Spirit.

And, Lord, restore to your People the powerful preaching of "the Good News with the Holy Spirit sent down from heaven".

In Jesus' name. Amen.
