If we take Act 2:42-47 as the ideal picture of the church, then we can surmise that the ideal life of the church is one that is nurtured on Spirit, Word, and Sacrament. We need a diet of all three to have a healthy and holistic Christian community.
Many churches are very logocentric, they have a heavy priority on the teaching and preaching of the Word, but at the neglect of the other of the means of grace. The problem is that, if you have a church so fixated on the Word, with no room for the Spirit to move, and no place for the sacraments, then you’ve effectively turned the Church into a Mosque. Islam is all about “word,” the Qu’ran is a dictated revelation and that is it, there is no symbol or sacrament of God to draw us closer, no Spirit of God to move in our midst, it is just word, word, word.
If you have a church that is all for the Spirit, seeking to be filled with the Spirit, trying to walk in the Spirit, yet pays lip service to the Word, and ignore the sacraments, then you’ve effectively moved into Mysticism. The emotional release of worship and the empowering of the Spirit for work become disconnected from instruction in the Word that the spiritual life thirsts for. The Spirit binds together worship, word, and sacraments, so a healthy yearning for the Spirit should naturally leave us hungering for God’s Holy Word and the signs of his grace.
If you have a church that is focused almost exclusively on the sacrament, which explains away the Spirit, and reduces the Word to little sound bites of good advice, then you’ve reduced the service to Magic show. Here God becomes a jack-in-the-box, who jumps out when the bread and the wine land on the table. The elements become substitutes for faith and obedience. The sacraments only have their power in the union of Word and Spirit, so feasting on the blood and body of Christ is possible only by the Spirit that connects us together with Christ, and by the Word by which the elements are given their true meaning.
