Let’s talk why extra Holy Spirit Filled Church services help a Church or person to go to the next level in their walk with God or get out of a rut. A lot can happen in seven days. In seven days, God created the Heavens, the Earth, and all that walks upon it. In seven days, Jericho came tumbling down. In seven days, Jesus entered triumphantly, was crucified, and rose from the grave victoriously. However, not everything that can happen in seven days is always something to celebrate. In seven days you can get laid off. In seven days a loved one may become ill or pass. In seven days, there are many ways that life can bog us down. So, if you are only visiting with fellow believers in God once every seven days, then there are six days where you are not directly being filled by the presence and Spirit of Jesus Christ through interaction with fellow believers. But, there are alternatives and solutions to this problem. There is no requirement to only go to church on Sundays, yet that is what many believers do. There are plenty to plug in and continue to be enriched throughout the week.
The first example of one of these ways to plug in is to get involved in a bible study with fellow members of your United Pentecostal Church. This can be done either one on one or in a group setting. While it is great to hear the pastor’s wisdom and teachings through Sunday morning sermons. You may also find yourself with questions that you weren’t able to have answered during the traditional Church service, or perhaps it deals with a personal matter you’d like to discuss and learn more about in a private setting. Whatever the reason, bible studies are a great way to utilize additional services for you and/or your church. Bible studies can provide you with in-depth application of the Bible, often taught by leading members of the Church. When you are feeling downtrodden, ravaged by the temptation of sin, or just plain lost amidst the distractions of this world, a Bible study is a great way to remind yourself midweek who God is and what plans He has for your life.
In addition to Bible study, many Holy Spirit Filled United Pentecostal Churches San Antonio TX offer additional services throughout the week. While Wednesdays are most common, many churches offer services on other days of the week to accommodate your schedule and needs. At Pentecostal Life Church, our doors are open for midweek services each Thursday at 7:00 p.m. The midweek church service is perhaps the better example for engaging in the larger Church body and with the pastor more than once a week. Midweek services at any Church are typically larger than a Bible study group would be, and this allows you to interact with and be held accountable to a larger group of believers than you would at a smaller group. So, what can you expect to hear from a midweek service? How does this apply to your life?
Midweek services are not only a great way to reconnect with the messages heard on Sunday mornings and with the Holy Spirit, but it is also a great way to go further into God’s word and to go deeper into the application of His teachings to your life. While Midweek services typically have more participants than a home group or a Bible study, they are more intimate than the traditional Sunday service. This allows for the topic of discussion to be applied on a more personal level, as midweek services typically offer more interaction between the pastor/speaker and the audience. If you are in a place where you would like to know more about the Lord Jesus Christ and what His sacrifice on the cross means to your life, then an extra service is for you. If you are a new Christian and wish to understand how the writings of the New Testament apply specifically to your life, then an extra service is for you. This increased depth and intimacy offered by extra midweek services fosters new and growing believers in a different way from traditional Sunday services. If you are someone seeking out the next level of your faith or looking to God for how to seek out the next level in your life, then an extra weekday service can give you that extra push.
If you are in a midweek rut, as discussed earlier, and simply need to be fed and to be in His presence, then an extra midweek service is also for you. If you are feeling worn down by the trials of the week, if sin is causing you strife, and if you just need a reminder of the presence, power, and promise of Jesus Christ, then an extra midweek service is for you. Jesus has a plan for each and every one of our lives. Those plans have their fair share of both risk and reward, trial and triumph. There are going to be ruts in your life where the tasks at hand and environments that you are in may seem overwhelming. But, Jesus has also placed you in a larger Apostolic Church body, and an extra midweek service is the perfect way to properly engage with and utilize that placement. It is the place to further engage, to understand, and to let Christ and His body pull you out of the rut that you may find yourself in.
