Where is today’s Church heading to?

25 11 2012

Shabbat Shalom and greetings I bring to you my beloved ones around the globe in the mighty and resurrected name of Our Lord Jesus Christ our perfect Savior, Redeemer and Deliverer. My prayer for you today is that each one of you will abound in all good things that God has prepared beforehand for those who love God. Continue to read the rest of this article and be blessed at all times. Greetings again to you my beloved ones in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Looking at today’s topic, it is really good that each one of us believers give a sound thought on that. First and foremost let us first define the meaning of “Church.” Most of us probably would think that the “church” is in fact a man made building. But the written word of God says that we the people are God’s temple and that put in plain simple English would mean that the believers in Christ Jesus is in fact the “church.”

Today take a good look around you and you will know and understand what this message means to each believer. The majority of believers are focusing on church buildings rather than building God’s temple that is within us.They spend so much money on choosing the  best materials to adorn the buildings rather than looking after the temple of God that is within each one of us.

Secondly we worship God in vain. We worship God by rules and traditions taught by men.  As the written word of God is written in the Gospel of St Mark 7:6-7  ” These people honor me with their lips,but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain, their teachings are but rules taught by men.”  We are to worship God in spirit and in truth. But we do not find it happening  today in places of worship.

Beloved friends, thirdly giving glory to God has become a secondary matter. People prefer to give glory to men first rather than to God. A very good example can be seen when a wealthy person donates a large sum of money towards a renovation of a place of worship. All glory is given unto a mere person rather than God. This is happening everywhere around the globe. Is this what God really wants from us believers? That is why it is said that our hearts are far away from God.

Nowadays believers are not reaching out to save souls. Many souls are perishing without knowing the gospel and without getting salvation. We rather sit in our own place of worship rather then going out to preach the word of God to the lost souls. Remember that we are all accountable if there was an opportunity to preach the gospel to a lost soul and we overlook the matter because we are so busy in doing other things that the former becomes a secondary matter to us.

How many times do we need to have revival? There are some people who will attend all the revival meetings over and over again to revive themselves. At times I do wonder how many times do we really need to revive ourselves? At times even after attending so many revival meeting there are still the same. Why is this so? There should be the fruit of the spirit in them. There should be a change in oneself to move out and seek after the lost. We are called to a mission.Not just to bask in His glory on the mountaintop, but to share God’s message to a lost and dying world out there. Are we not told to go into all the world and preach the word of God to all creation? (Mark 16:15)

Beloved friends, today what are we as believers really looking forward to? Which is more important in the eyes of God? A building built by the hands of men adorn with all the expensive materials or the temple of God that is within us today? What is our true mission as a disciple of Our Lord Jesus Christ? Will the church of today, I mean the individual of oneself, be able to accept the people not wanted by today’s society? Does a sinner has a place in our churches today? Are the churches only meant for the righteous, the rich and the intellectuals?  If you look around today my dear friends the question that I have put forward are all happening in our churches today!

Beloved friends, do ponder on what I have written. Are our hearts genuinely right before God? Whatever we do, God knows in what intention or manner are we doing things. Nothing and absolutely nothing is hidden from the eyes of God. Have a Blessed Sunday and stay blessed at all times. Love you all with the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

God Bless
