Acute awareness of the risen Jesus requires much more than hearing a talk about Him. It requires direct, personal, ongoing, and interactive encounter with Him. It requires a knowing beyond head knowledge that ignites the heart with awe-filled aha and hallelujah.
Christ-followers can gather with other believers in heart-felt, attentive awareness of the presence of the risen Jesus. Then, instead of relying on a program, ministrant, agenda, or curriculum, they can experience the simplicity and faith of children relying on their father to pick them up and carry them. That sets the stage for the divine intervention and holy awe that was manifest when the disciples gathered in the Book of Acts.
People who hunger and thirst for a deeper relationship with Jesus can go beyond gathering in “a form of godliness” that essentially ignores the active and ongoing presence, power, and Headship of the ever-present Jesus. They can have everyone present listen to (attune to) the risen Jesus and then say and/or do whatever He tells them to. The resulting demonstrations of Jesus’ reality will be awe-inspiring and life changing.
Then, having encountered and experienced (seen and heard) the living Jesus actively working in and through the ordinary believers gathered in His name, people will have an awareness of Jesus that will remain with them as they are supernaturally empowered to live in, but not of, the world. Try it for yourself. Gather with one or two or more people. Tune into Jesus. Then let each person say and/or do what He prompts them to.
