How can we as the Church, ever expect to create an impact in this world if the only thing we do is pray a petition to God to handle something WE think needs to be prayed for instead of praying about what He wants us to do as well? According to John 14:15-17;26, God gave us the same Spirit that dwelled in Jesus when He walk this earth. And according to John 14:12, Jesus said: 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
It's like we forgot that we are vessels possessing the Holy Spirit of GOD!! We are the ambassadors of the Kingdom of Heaven!!! We are the hands and feet, the eyes and ears of our Lord. Not just the mouths! We're talking too much and not doing anything!! Where's the impact in that without the actions to back them up? Let's stop just saying I love you and start walking in love!! Let's stop just saying I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me and start walking in His strength!! What's the use of having faith, even if it's as a grain of mustard seed, if we never operate in it? No wonder the earth is full of chaos...... we haven't been good stewards of the earth and we're reaping a bad harvest. I don't say this to shame, but more to encourage!! Acknowledge who you are in Christ and the Spirit you possess within your being!!! We have the power in Christ!! Power is not the words you speak, but the actions and effects those words cause!! Our authority comes from GOD through Christ, but our actions must line up with the Word He speaks to and through us to have the impact we are suppose to be making!! Now, more than ever is the time for the Church to stand together in the unity of our faith!!! We are to be an example in the world and an aid to one another as the body of Christ, not viewed as competition for one another. A house divided can't stand (Matt. 12:25)!!
STAND UP SAINTS!!!! THE TIME IS DRAWING NEAR, AT OUR VERY DOOR STEPS!! WE HAVE WORK TO DO!!!!
