This is easy to do and simply requires practice – like learning to ride a bike. The earliest church understood that spirituality is driven by trust (faith). That is, as with all relationships, trust is central. The early church knew God could be trusted because of what he had done through Jesus – it simply believed God and Jesus could be trusted and so the first friends of Jesus gave them their trust. It is the same with enjoying and following the Holy Spirit – he too can be trusted, does different things than do the Father and Son, and is easily known and enjoyed.
To experience the spirituality of the earliest church, this ‘living in the Spirit’, try these steps:
1. Trust Jesus, invite him to be your friend, your saviour from from mistakes, and your Lord for all time. (remember to read and follow his teachings.)
2. Trust the Holy Spirit too – invited him into your life to be empowerer, teacher and guide, that is trust him for these things and follow his prompts.
3. Next, continue living , expecting (trusting) him to connect with you and to show his presence in your life and circumstances.
