THINK ABOUT IT: 

At the risk of being controversial, I am going to share these thoughts and questions that came to me during my quiet time regarding the state of the "Church" in the USA. 


#1 - Why do many Christian leaders put more time and effort into our Sunday morning services than we put into reaching the unreached parts of the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ?


#2 - Isn't the purest form of worship displayed to God through our obedience to His commands and not how well we can preach, sing or play worship songs? Mark 16:15 "He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."


#3 - Did you know that many churches put more money into their worship, audio and video departments than they do into world missions? Isn't that sad? All this is happening right under our noses while over 1/3rd of the people in the world have never even heard the gospel of Jesus. 


#4 - Why do many of us put more time and effort into planning out the entertainment in our lives than we do on fulfilling God's Great Commission? And many of us spend more on entertainment than we do on giving to world missions. Time to change don't you think?

#5 - What are we going to do to make the necessary changes? Think about it and let's do something now! When we stand before the Lord would we rather hear God say 'Well done, good and faithful servant!" (Matthew 25:21) or "well, you made it."? 


We are saved by Grace, but that same grace compels us to serve and obey the one who gave His life for us. 2 Corinthians 6:1 "As God's co-workers we urge you not to receive God's grace in vain."


Luke 11:28 "He replied, "Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it."


LET'S PRAY:
Hear our prayer Lord Jesus and help us to not only Read Your Word, but to Obey Your Word, so we can Do Your Will and Fulfill Your Purposes in this World that You Gave Your Life to Save. 


I know I have been bought with your Blood and I am not my own, so I say to You today - Here I Am, Send Me! Let Your Will be Done on Earth as it is in Heaven! I pray this in the all powerful name of Jesus!! Amen
