"Are you devout? Or are you dangerous?" That is the question Pastor Mike Signorelli of V1 Church poses in his latest teaching from Pentecost Sunday.
Signorelli takes us to Acts 2 to set up the scene for Pentecost. There we see the fire of the Holy Spirit come upon the believers in the upper room, which led the devout men dwelling in the city around them to be amazed and astonished at those who to them were mere Galileans, simple, uneducated men. The difference between the devout men and the dangerous ones was that the devout had a spirit of religion, whereas the dangerous ones were filled with the Holy Spirit.
Signorelli reminds us that Satan does a lot of our devout practices too. Satan read the Bible. Satan knows Jesus, and he attends most local churches every week! So what takes you from devout to dangerous? Doing the will of the Father.
In Mark 16:15, Jesus gives us a mandate to "go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation." Signorelli points out that it doesn't say go to church or a Bible study, or go post a carefully curated video on Tik Tok—but go into all the world. He says this will then make you desperate to go to church so that you can be refilled and equipped!
He goes on to make a bold statement that, "Being a Christian who doesn't tell non-Christians what Christ did for them makes the most miserable existence possible."
So we'll ask again, "Do you want to be devout, or do you want to be dangerous?"
