their own lives. In the process, like leaven working through a lump of dough, the fabric and texture of society begin to change. This is true organic transformation, not something enforced upon a church or a community or a civilization from above. Acts 19 provides a picture of how this happened in Ephesus under Paul’s ministry, where people willingly changed their religious practices and eliminated old practices. During this stage, new organizations and institutions arise both to propagate the teaching of the kingdom of God as well as to sustain the work already underway. Laws may be changed to reflect a God-centric viewpoint. New institutions such as hospitals or universities or denominations (new wineskins) may be founded. Reformation is the means by which the new teaching and experience about God is handed on to the next generation. This is a necessary step to secure the harvest, as the Church is always only one generation away from eclipse. New societal values giving rise to new laws and to new institutions…together these give rise to a new worldview. Reformation is more than an experience; it engages the heart, the soul, and the mind. It is literally changing the deep structure of a people’s thought, of a society’s priorities, and of a civilization’s worldview. Reformation introduces and sustains the abundance of God’s presence in a society by providing access to supernatural living.
