You can attend all of the church services you like, from here till Jesus comes back and it won’t do you a bit of good UNTIL you have a relationship with Him!
You don’t need better lighting, bigger buildings, or cooler graphics….you need to know Jesus intimately.
I know some who will claim they have a relationship with Jesus, but what would happen to them if they were unable to attend their church? How would their relationship with Jesus be? Almost non-existent? Maybe so.
So many equate their relationship with Jesus by the church they attend or how often they attend. Not only that….their perception of Jesus depends on what their particular church teaches or believes…NOT on what they themselves have sought out in God’s word and know to be truth. That is scary! This is also why we have a weak kneed Christiandom today.
I for one have grown weary of trying to be Christian Politically Correct and not offend anyone for standing up for what I believe…especially when what I believe is based on sound biblical foundation.
And if i am wrong…I am not ashamed to admit it.
We don’t need more programs, better lighting, cooler graphics, bigger buildings, or hipper/younger leadership.
We need to be reflectant….so that when people look at us they see a true representation of Jesus Christ. We should reflect His mercy. His grace. His love. His truth.
We need to live this Christian life with wreck-less abandon. Abandoning ourselves for His will and purpose.
We don’t need more church…we need more God!
Going to church is NOT the answer….BEING the church of Jesus Christ is!
