Acts: Week 6, Day 1

2. One of the things that struck me in the notes was the information provided about the hub of the church now moving to Antioch.  To me, this shows that the center of the church is not in some physical place, but that it is centered on where the spirit is moving, where the word is being preached and where brothers are responding, proactively, to the needs of other brothers.  It reminded me of the dialogue between Jesus and the woman at the well.  She challenged Jesus over the physical location of worship – the temple in Jerusalem.  In John 4:23 He replied: “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.  God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.”  I think we are seeing the church in Acts modeling worship in spirit and truth.
