The church should be about changing a person’s life! The very sad reality is that we have made it about everything, but the very thing that it needs to be about. At our core all of us are selfish and we want what we want, but church should challenge and change that.
The truth is that there is something more important and better than what you want and that is what God wants! It is unreal what we have done to and with the church because of our selfishness and our unwillingness to get ourselves out-of-the-way, so that we could pursue a better and more perfect way mapped out for us by our Creator.
I love God and I love His Church, but I must admit that there are days when I grow so weary, because the mountain just looks way to high to climb. I will not give up, even though the tasks looks impossible. I will keep preaching, teaching and sharing the amazing Word of God. I will continue to love and minister to the needs that He shows me with all that He has provided. I will confess my sins and failures and receive His forgiveness and restoration. I will be faithful to God and His Church, because it has changed and is changing my life and eternity and that is really what it is all about.
Will you join me?
