Icon of the Pentecost

From Mornings with Tozer:

The coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost was a gracious experience of fulfillment and blessing and direction for the Christian church.  It was the continuing emphasis for believers that we must live to gear ourselves into things eternal and to live the life of heaven here upon earth.  We must yield our first obedience and loyalty to Jesus Christ, at any cost!  Anything we try to offer God that is less than that really is a degradation of the Christian church.

Frankly, I would rather be a member of a group that meets in a little room on a side street than to be part of a great activity that is not New Testament in its doctrine, in its spirit, in its living, in its holiness, in all of its texture and tenor.  The Spirit-filled and Spirit-led congregation will be a joyful people.  Beyond that, it will be useful and caring and compassionate!  I do believe that the Christian church ought to be a helpful influence to the whole community!
