The church has become sympathetic (passive), but in this season God is raising an empathetic (active) church because it’s time to change things! First way to effect societal reform: Raise disciples. Disciples walk in the principles of God; we are not a group of followers.
Acts 1 speaks of Christians because the people who were the reference were doing what Jesus Christ did. The church is not supposed to be a high maintenance centre handing out miracles but a perfecting centre for societal reform.
