Becoming an Apostolic “Sending” Community

‹ Blog Becoming an Apostolic “Sending” Community

The book of Acts gives a clear picture of the early Church as an apostolic “sending” community. As they ministered to the Lord, prayed, fasted, and cultivated love for Jesus & one another, God divinely poured out His Spirit on these communities.

They went throughout their entire region, demonstrating the love of God with power, and it occurred only as they did not compromise in the place of ministry unto the Lord. They truly became “sent laborers” — “sent” straight from the place of encountering God — and the impact of their lives and labor reverberates today.

As a Missions Base, we feel the strong conviction to live out this model, that from the place of ministering unto the Lord as a furnace of prayer and worship, God would demonstrate His love with power. Our interns are emerging from standing before the Lord in the Prayer Room and living fasted lifestyles, then joining our prophetic outreach teams which have almost weekly been going into the city, demonstrating the love of Christ and the power of God in obedience to the Holy Spirit.

As we wait on the Holy Spirit, and ask God what’s on His heart, He faithfully reveals the things in His heart — an image, a word, a phrase, a scripture — then, we respond in obedience. We can’t do His part, and He won’t do our part, because He’s looking for partnership. And partnership is what we give Him. Sure enough, God confirms His word.

Since the beginning of the internship specifically, we’ve seen God minister to, deliver, and heal numerous people, including a broken ankle that had yet to heal properly since September last year. It’s incredibly moving to see God awaken the faith and hearts of these young adults as they step out in obedience.

God’s invitation to partner with Him in prophetic evangelism is open to everyone. We have to step out in faith in trusting God’s leading, and act on it by speaking out.

“…grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, band that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” Acts 4:29–30
