you hurt we all hurt

We may be discouraged by our personal circumstances, or even in our own churches and denominations. Nevertheless, there can be no doubt that Christ’s “little flock” centered in Jerusalem has now spread into every part of the world. Even in the face of perennial persecution from without and corruption from within, the church is still the kingdom that Christ is building, with himself as the cornerstone.

 

 

 

“Do not go beyond what is written.” Then you will not be puffed up in being a follower of one of us over against the other. 7 For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not? 1 Corinthians 4: 6b-7

 

 

 

For all we have comes from the Father, there is a steadfastness in realizing everything we have and everything we need is given to us by Him; and if we are without something He sustains us.

 

 

There is nothing more nurturing than His Word, the bible and as the Apostle Paul points out, Christ is to be all to us and His Church is to be a reflection of His love, grace and mercy. Does the church fail, yes at times it does, but is you and I in our flawed humanity that fails to reflect Christ adequately.  Not Christ, nor the true Church, like we must forgive one another and sometimes we need to pray for our churches to be the image of Christ, as God intended.

 

 

 

If you are dismayed or disappointed by the church you are attending my I recommend instead of church hopping, (which becomes a disease) stay and try to make things right, pray more for your church, become more active instead of less active. If it’s pastor that is offensive pray to God that things change, God is more interested than you know in that person representing Him in that pulpit, and will move mightily in that person’s life if you pray.

 

 

Well I could turn this subject into a book, so let me stop there.
