Human control isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. By letting go of worship services and letting God, Himself, control and personally direct them, church can move into a supernatural dimension.
Jesus wants to use you, and all of His followers, (not just a preacher), to show His love to and to minister to others. He isn’t dead & needing a professional spokesperson. He’s alive & speaking for Himself. Listen!
When Christians come together for worship, everyone is important. We all can have something valuable to share. Fifty-something times, the New Testament tells us to minister to one another in various ways.
There’s no hierarchy in the Body of Christ because every member has a direct connection with the Head, Jesus! In the Gospels you see that Jesus is informal, relational, and unpredictable. He doesn’t follow a set program. In the Gospels the Pharisees resisted Jesus because He wouldn’t follow their program.
If we program Jesus, then we’re the boss. We need to let Jesus program us. Some people would rather personally interact with Jesus than to sit & watch a program about Him.
When Christians gather as an interactive assembly of equals led by the risen Jesus, that’s ekklesia. There’s one leader in the Body of Christ, the living Jesus. The rest of us are followers.
To “let go & let God” isn’t just for individuals. It’s even more powerful if a group lets go of human control and let’s God take over.
Biblical Christianity is a daily adventure full of excitement & joy! Our call is to bring people to Jesus so that they can follow Him, not to make people dependent on a preacher.
In this age of “tolerance” why don’t churches have more tolerance for people who want to obey the Holy Spirit’s promptings? There seems to be no room in church for people who want to share what God puts on their heart according to 1 Corinthians 14:26.
Jesus is far more real to me than any Sunday morning program. Sometimes they distract me from His presence.
True love cares for people beyond race, politics, nationalism, religion, or behavior because all are hurting. Christians are called to loyalty to the risen Jesus above all other loyalties.
I love living in a country where people are free to express disagreement. I just wish we would be kinder with it. I’d rather show God’s love than win an argument.
God’s heart is so much larger than any nation; caring deeply about every kindred & every tribe. O, for the heart of God!P
