In light of the events in the world, I ask this question: Where is the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and what are we doing?
I think we have become so much like the world, we have lost the ability to impact our culture for Christ. It appears our leaders are more concerned with prestige and position than with the souls of men. There once was a time when we sought to be at the feet of Jesus and search for the heart of God. Now we strive to be on the more popular television and radio stations. Where is the anointing anymore?
We should be walking in power and in the presence of our Lord. Yet, it appears we have no power. Our prophets often miss the will of God, and our leaders seem more interested in crowds rather than the glory of the Lord.
Paul teaches the Roman believers,
“The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.” - Romans 8:19 (NIV)
I wonder what prevents the church from being revealed to the world? Jesus said we are the salt of the earth and the light of the world, and I wonder if we are doing a good job with that responsibility.
The world is in terrible shape, and there seems to be no hope at all. What must we do to represent Christ? I invite your response at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Love God, always!
