WHERE ART THOU?!?
JJ Daniel, Washington
at the “Church” today is EXCITING! God is busy working on His kids; He
is changing us, molding us, and He is moving us each toward being more like
Jesus. It appears to me that He is bringing us closer and closer to being what
He designed His “Body” to be. Amen?
we look to Jesus, as our example, we see that yes… He did preach in the
Synagogues and Temples. He also preached on the mountaintops, from
fishing-boats, on the streets, in cornfields and fields of lilies; in the homes
of sinners, and everywhere He went. Sometimes people didn’t even recognize that
He was teaching them the ways of His Kingdom - i.e. Matthew 12.
seems to me, that we “Christians”
have hidden in the comfort of our padded pews for waaaaaaaaay to long! I
truly believe that it is time for us to get OUT THERE - in the “hi-ways
and by-ways” and be the “LIGHT” and “SALT” that Jesus says we
ARE! (Mat 8:6-8 - Mat 28:19-20 – Mat
can we be light to a world filled with evil – if we aren’t out there where it
is? The light that shines in my office
does nothing for the back porch of my house… know what I mean? We need to be LIGHT where light is needed. (Like
morning, Saturday evening, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday –
gathering together to worship Jehovah-God is an awesome and powerful place to
be! I LOVE IT!! We are instructed in
the Word of God that we must not neglect to do this. It is a VITAL part of what
we need, to stay strong and to be all that God has designed us to be. It is
however, only part of what God tells us to do.
said: “GO!” He said “heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out
devils… freely you’ve received – freely give!” Matt 10:7-8
are a few
people coming into the church who need all of the above, but there are
multitudes who do not come to church, who need Jesus! Tell me
please… is there any place in the Word of God that says… “never mind the
people who are out there, if they don’t come to church to find Me.. let em
suffer! Let them hurt! Leave them sick and lonely! Let them die and go to
hell!” I think NOT!
will tell them about the love of God, and what Jesus has
already done for them… if not you and me?!
Christ in YOU… the ONLY HOPE!! Colossians 1:27
bless you and yours – with Wholeness, Peace and a new, fresh vision of what He
has designed you to do, before He returns for His Church.
