I SIT BACK AND SHAKE MY HEAD AS MANY WALK AWAY FROM JESUS AND HIS KINGDOM, BUT REMAIN IN THE CHURCH.
I pray about this all the time and ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom in understanding what to do as a Pastor. At times I think about a new follow-through program, maybe more calls, chasing people to try to convince them that they should be consistent…….
THEN ONE DAY I OPENED THE WORD TO THE BOOK OF ACTS!
Acts 2:41b, there were added that day about three thousand souls. ESV
Acts 4:4, But many of those who had heard the word believed, and the number of the men came to about five thousand. ESV
Just in two services, 8,000 men were genuinely born again. That doesn’t count women and children.
They did not have a follow-through program!
They did not have a team of people to chase those who missed 3 weeks of church!
They did not have all the computer programs!
WHAT DID THEY HAVE?
The people chose Jesus and refused to allow the ways of the world to draw them back.
They did not live with both feet in the two worlds.
YOU CANNOT LIVE FOR JESUS AND LUCIFER AT THE SAME TIME!
Saying the prayer is not the magic potion. It is a genuine relationship with the Living God.
IF SOMEONE HAS TO CHASE YOU DOWN TO BE AT THE HOUSE OF GOD……….You might need to ask yourself about your commitment to the King.
IF SOMEONE HAS TO CONVINCE YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN MINISTRY…….You might want to check your passion and desire to obey the Word of God.
AWAKE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD – JESUS IS COMING – BE GENUINE WITH THE SAVIOR AND SERVE HIM WITH ALL YOUR HEART…NOT THE LEFTOVERS.
1 John 2:15, Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
