A Swift Kick

Act 1:1-3


Synopsis: Change is not easy no matter how young or old you happen to be.  We all know that change is a part of living.  Physically, we are either renewing our cells or we are dying.  The same is true spiritually. 

      Over the course of life I have been made painfully aware of the spiritual principle of “A Swift Kick.”  It is a biblical principle relate to the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of individuals and through them to the life of the church.  J. W, MacGorman helped me to identify and name this principle through a study of the book of Acts back in 1990.

      The stories in Acts help us identify ways we as believers often resist the leadership of the Holy Spirit when it comes to change.  I hope this sermon and the reading of Acts will help you identify spiritual barriers that you and others before you have erected to block others out and fence you in.  May the Spirit of Christ lift you over these barriers and give you and those around you access to the transforming power of our Lord Jesus Christ.
