a little rant!

Just a rant from me J
Having witnessed the tears of anguish for the lost souls from a new believer recently I felt very convicted.. I was thinking to myself the enemy loves to divert our attention from what really matters to God.. the people who have yet come  to know Him.. the souls that are hungry for Him and are looking elsewhere for answers..
We know the King of Kings.. we know His heart is that no man should perish.. we know the truth that is found in Him and Him alone.. He is the way the truth and the life.. He reminds us daily  the harvest is here...
and I was thinking  we can spend so much time on arguing about the smallest details.. about what church we go to.. about the 10 virgins, are they saved or not saved.. although these things have a place for discussion, we must make sure they don’t consume our heart or take place of the compassion and the love  we must have for those who don’t know Christ Jesus..
When I meet people I have’t seen for a while the first question is .. ‘what church do you go to?’.. oh please don’t be offended, but that is just becoming so irrelevant! It is time to wake up and remember it’s about Jesus not the church!! I think He left the building a long time ago!!!
Yes, a thousand times over, It's about JESUS, our Lord and Saviour.. and going about His Kingdom business.. (without being too busy for the King)..

The question to ask each other is how are we going with our relationship with God.. Are we spending time with Him in intimacy.. are we taking the Great Commission seriously? Is our heart devoted to Him and His truth?..
Lets ask Him daily, Lord, use us, we are not ever going to be perfect, so take these vessels as we are and use us to reach the lost, to bring your Name glory, You are the Potter.. Lord we want to take the great Commission seriously and spread your love, your truth and your presence wherever we go.. In the Name of Yeshua, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!! Amen!
The  real heroes of faith are getting their hands dirty with one passion in their heart.. to exalt God, to see the lost come to Christ Jesus, their King..
Well praise God with all my heart that His promises stand, and we will see the Glory of God regardless.. if like some people think it depended on us, we would be a sorry lot!!!

And I could rant on.. but this was just a thought xx

So for those who still wonder what church I go to? I go to the ‘What if’ church..

“What if the word church in ordinary conversation called to mind
‘uncontrived,’ ‘joy,’  or ‘where God has His way’ instead of pews, parking
lots, and preachers?

What if church people had no idea what a ‘sinner’s prayer’ or ‘tithing’ meant, but were instead joyfully repentant, generous without hesitation, and innately compelled by love?

What if church were not a place to learn religion but the best tangible proof of God’s existence?

Where two or three are gathered in My Name.. says the Lord..
