The Guidance of the Spirit

"The first Christians were most conscious of the guidance of the Holy Spirit when they met for common worship and common deliberation. No one who has experienced this unifying process can remain in doubt about the power of the Holy Spirit. So remarkable can the agreement of the Christian fellowship be that at a famous church meeting at Jerusalem [Acts 15:28] a momentous decision was recorded in these words: "it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us.""
