Don’t be in a hurry to say that you know what the lost art of the church is! You’ll be surprised it’s not prayer, neither is it evangelism. While prayer, fasting, evangelism, preaching, giving, doing one or more things for the Kingdom of God are all very necessary and important, they are not the ultimate. In fact, this practice, or rather, lifestyle, was what made the Early Church wield tremendous influence despite their limitations. The Early Church, you know, never had technology they could leverage on. Still, their impacts are far more than the impacts made by the present-day Church. Without technology, they turned the whole world upside down for good (Acts 17:6). Through this secret, the Word of God reached continents (Acts 19:10)
“And this continued for two years so that all who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews, and Greeks.”
What then is this lost art of the church?
“…Enoch walked with God three hundred years…
“And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.” (Genesis 5:22, 24)
See the secret here that made God to literally take a man away! The man never died! What evangelism outreach could be stronger than that? The secret is genuine love for God!
Apostle Paul who did so much for God did cry out, “That I might know Him (God)” (Philippians 3:10). The word knowledge isn’t common knowledge. It carries the idea of the highest level of physical intimacy between a man and his wife. It is the same Greek word meaning it has with the knowledge mentioned in Genesis 4:1.
“Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived…”
The lost art practically explained
This secret of maximum impact without sweat is a constant fellowship with God. It is getting before God and just appreciating Him, loving Him, thanking and celebrating Him. It is just wanting to be with God! Many Christians struggle to discover God’s purpose for their lives. But they don’t need to. All they need do is just love God and keep spending time with Him, as you would with a lover. Trust me, by the time you’re done for that moment, many things would have become supernaturally done for you! Activities that would have naturally taken about 10 hours would be done in a few minutes! You will experience breakthroughs.
Many times, we struggle to do instead of just be! We’re human beings, not human doings! Just be with Him, and He’ll take care of all your cares. Your walk with Him is far more important than your work for Him. As a matter of fact, God wants to partner with us to carry out the greater works He’s promised. (John 14:12, Ephesians 2:10)
- Restoration of the Lost Art
The restoration has to begin with you, or rather, increase with you. Start spending time with God just loving Him, worshipping Him, reverencing Him, listening to Him, and before you leave there your heart would have become full of joy and power. Your life becomes naturally attractive because the aura of God has rested on you.
Go, start spending time with God!
