“Will the REAL sons of God please stand up?” That is what I am asking. We as children of the Most High God are to be in the world but not of the world. Are we truly different?
Let’s see. Does your church building have a place for single parents and the elderly? Does if over an outreach program to help with the needs you may have? How about life skills that teach you how to treat people how you’d like to be treated? If not maybe we all can learn a thing or two from reading the book of Acts and 1&2 Timothy.
I hear a lot “there is no perfect church”. Yet perfect in the Greek meant complete or whole not the same as in English. So as you just learned by reading my previous post (What is the church?) You are alone complete and whole in Christ.
If Christ is not the foundation then everything fails! Thus the reason why the real children of God needs to rise up in the Earth. We need to fight the good fight of faith and overtake and recover all the enemy has stolen! We need to set spiritual captives free! We need to declare “Thy Kingdom come, that will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.”
Arise arise and put on strength!
When you read the title of this you may have thought a place where believers gather weekly to worship. Or a place to experience the presence of God. Those are good but not totally correct.
Don’t kill the messenger. Please hear me out. The word of God says to us in Corinthians that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Later in the Holy book it says where two or more are gathered in my name there I am in the midst. I being the Most High God in the statement. Christ told us that if we abide in Him, while He is in the Father then the Father abides in us. Also we know that God is Love. And we should abide in Love.
So chruch in the book of Acts was a house or hidden place where believers ate a meal, sang praise to God and did miracles. Shoot even a jail was church.
Sadly America and other nations have lost sight of what church really is and should be. It has become a “charitable organization” ran by “donations” and faith. An agency of sorts. I would say to them in leadership as Christ Jesus did “He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying…” Come back to your first love. We are the body of Christ! No group of people are more worthy of the name “children of God” than the next. He came for the Jew and Gentile.
If you have opened the door to Christ Jesus then you are His Church. His Holy Spirit will lead and guide you into all truth. Let us not forget that “The truth shall set us free”!
Peace be unto you!
Mercy Ever Reaching You. That is what mercy means for me. The Most High God through Himself in the form of the Christ, sought me out until I was found.
I was lost doing things my own way. The Bible says “There is a way that seems right unto a man but that way leads unto death.” Here I was being in control of my own destiny and leading myself to an early grave. If not physically then spiritually. But MERCY called out my name and pursued endlessly after me.
God help me to see the error in doing for myself and allowing others to. He showed me that He will NEVER fail me or disown me. He showed me what true love is. (Read 1 Corinthians 13). His love is all that plus more!
If MERCY has called your name answer. Even if you are reluctant do it anyway. He’d not stop drawing you back unto Himself. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us “I know the plans I have for you says the LORD plans of good and not of evil. To give you a hope and a future.” Christ in us is the hope of glory! Praise God! And the future is an everlasting life of abundance in Christ Jesus though the leading of the sweet Spirit of the Holy Ghost our Helper. He is with us always!
Let go of the reign of your life and give yourself to the One Wise God our Saviour. His mercy and love endures forever!
