Daily Devotional: Day 4 Prayer
Church to awaken to the shaking and have a strong backbone.
Connecticut and Delaware
1Timothy 3:15 If I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God's household, which is the church of the living God, pillar and foundation of the truth.
In this passage Paul is reminding the "church" how they ought to conduct themselves..."in truth"!
Verse 14 says, he hopes to get to them soon but if he is delayed here are instructions on how to proceed as the body of believers. I emphasize, " in truth". That means not skirting around hard issues the world wantsus to allow. That means pastors have to stand with a strong backbone and call sin, Sin! Today because we want to be inclusive we allowed the "enemy's agenda" to creep into our church as we calmly put on our sunglasses and looked the other way. Someone just told me, "Well, I'm a progressive christian". That just means if I'm not affected by it personally then its okay. In Revelation 3:16 God says if you are warm He will spit us out of His mouth. Gid wants us hot or cold. So the answer is No Church. Last Sunday in New York City, during a catholic mass, a priest had parishioners respond "yes"as he denounced anyone who is "white". (Youtube has this posted) Again God says No! Psalm 139:14; I praise you (God) for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are your works, I know that full well.
I will not apologize for who God made me. We are all created in His image; Black, white, yellow, brown. Color doesn't make me who I am! God "in me" and the holy spirit "shining through me" make me, Me; loving and Christ like, standing on His words. Not condemning but also not to allow the enemy's agenda to be ours. Jesus said we are in the world but not to be "of the world".
Come on church..stand up! Stand tall in the faith. Pastors preach the gospel! God's gospel; not the worlds watered down lukewarm version of the truth. That leads to one place...Destruction.
Pray Church Pray!
