There is an amazing anointing on an agendaless assembly. It’s the very presence of the living, resurrected Jesus Christ, Himself. The First Century Church knew this, not as a doctrine, but as a powerful reality every time they met together in Jesus’ name.
After all, Jesus had promised them this: “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20) So what does it mean to be gathered together in Jesus’ name? It means that we meet together with no agenda of our own — no prearranged plan, no program — trusting Jesus, Himself, to direct the meeting with His own agenda (in His name).
