God’s People, where are thou?
It comes a time in everyone's life where you have to look at yourself, and accept responsibility for the decisions in which are made. Often times we are sitting stating we are waiting to hear from God when He has already spoken. The Faith we profess to have is not aligning with our actions. There is always something that is holding us back. The self-preservation and self-defense tactics are real. We are no longer going about our Father's business but we are self-loathing.
It is my conclusion that we are seeking to justify the unjustifiable. One of our biggest problems is that we are not honest with ourselves. We are allowing ourselves to sugarcoat the reality of life. We are not listening to the truth nor speaking the truth to others. We are so caught up in being political correct and earthly minded that there is no room or time to speak the God honest truth. Religion has taken over and relationship has cease. We have more people hurting in the church than ever before.
When we speak of kingdom building the right thing we seek is position/title. I have heard many people say the words, "the Pastor, is just a man, he is just like everyone else". If that is true, then I see why no one wants to attend church. I am sorry but the church is to be set apart from the world. You are to see differences and have different expectations and accountability. It is said how can you hear the word without a preacher. Well, if the preacher is just like you and I then I contend we are all doomed. You see I stand by the statement, "there are the self-appointed and the God-anointed, the two are not same and should never be confused as one". As the statement goes, "Many are called, but few are chosen". You better know what you
know and be able to stand on the rightness which is the holy unadulterated truth of God.
God is not to be mocked and it is time out for anything goes in the living church of God. God can and does use the unqualified. He can renew and change anyone. What we will not do is, continue to do what we want to do, and then say, "Don't judge me". Or say my all-time favorite, "let he who has not sinned cast the first stone". Anytime I hear these two statements all I think about are those who are still babes in Christ, and who do not want to live Christ like. We must be very careful, as we are all living by Grace.
