“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” -Edmund Burke
‘Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” – Howard Zinn
Sisterhood is about action, doing acts of kindness, valuing another enough to do something, actively seeking out way to reach out to others, proactively making a difference where God has placed you. It is not an ACT where pretence and just the appearance of Godliness is presented.
ACTS the plural of act (defined as the root word of action: One of the books of the Bible written by Doctor Luke is called the ACTS of the Apostles. It is not a book of the church pretending to be on stage and putting on a performance that is not real. It is a book written to record for us the actions of the early church and the profound difference they made on the world at that time. These men and women had been with Jesus and what transpired when each small act was multiplied into many. The book of Acts is a record of the actions of the first believers and the actions of the early church. It is a record that shows real life and the journey that unfolded when reality is confronted with heaven. Where the power of the Holy Spirit enables to ordinary men and women to do the extraordinary and where simple action have powerful impact. Down through the ages we are feeling the difference of those actions. Who down through the ages will feel the effect of your actions today.
If I were to write a book simply recording the acts of Hills Sisterhood I would love future generations to read and feel the difference each small act has made to the church of today and it’s influence on the church in decades to come.
There are some many powerfully relevant acts in this book that I couldn’t begin to record them all so let me encourage you to go read it for yourself and ask God what action he would have you take to contribute to lives, communities, cities and nations being transformed.
If we were to write a book called The Acts of Hills Chicks (I am sure there would be a modern version) …I would hope that it would be just as powerful and influential as the original book of Acts. Full of stories of ordinary women who chose to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and do acts of the supernatural kind. Imagine if you decided that the book of Acts would be your mandate for a year………The Hills Sisterhood would revolutionise the world.
