–Now Hear This: “Be Doers Of The Word”–
What if Christ-followers met to do the word
And not just to hear one man give a talk about it?
We could take turns doing the more than
50 New Testament one another commandments
Along with the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit.
We could prepare the way of the Lord
And build a habitat for Him
By cultivating an atmosphere
Of people listening to the voice of Jesus
And then doing what He tells them to.
Then we would transform church
From an auditorium for religious lectures
To a gathering of doers working together
To encourage and build each other up,
As a body of spiritual assemblers
Directed and led by the risen Jesus Christ.
–I woke up this morning with these words in my heart so I put them together in a poem format. Are these ideas realistic? Will they work? Yes, indeed. We do this every Sunday morning at 10:45 at The Salvation Army Berry Street in Nashville, Tennessee, 225 Berry St. 37207.
Come see for yourself. However, if you can’t make it in person, there is a book about how we meet available here.
