Lifeway Church in Dacula, GA | Sundays 10 AM

Changing And Growing

Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and [one] sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. - Acts 2:1-4 NKJV

The disciples were changed in an instant and were positioned for growth as they were filled with the Holy Spirit.

This was a great change from those that believed and followed Jesus to a power-filled Body of Christ baptized with the Holy Spirit. Power was available to them to change. This was the will of God manifested.

God filled His church with Himself because there were those that chose to obey the command of Jesus to go to the upper room and wait. He was welcomed. They were expecting.

Immediately they began to yield themselves to the Holy Spirit and as a result they began to see bigger, think bigger, speak bigger and act bigger. And they changed and grew!

In Acts chapter 2 they added three thousand and Acts 4 they added five thousand. They changed and they grew.

The pattern was established here in this encounter with God. We change on the inside in order to grow on the outside.

How much are you changing on the inside?

If you are changing on the inside, how much are you growing on the outside?

"I yield to the Holy Spirit in my life. I wait on the Lord and receive the infilling of His Spirit. I expect to change on the inside so that I can grow on the outside. I am excited about my future because I am seeing bigger, thinking bigger, speaking bigger and acting bigger. I am stretching in every area of my life!"
