Spiritual Security

I wonder what our nation would be like if we who are God's children would devote as much energy towards protecting spiritual security as we do towards protecting social security?!

So much of our focus over the last few decades has been distracted to our material well being that we have given the devil a huge opening to usher in vast numbers of demonic deceptions and spiritual seductions! As I said above, spiritual competition is at an all time high and growing more so daily!

Many of our families are spiritually divided, many of our churches are focused on gaining acceptance in and by the world, many of our leaders are introducing principles for living that are simply contrary to the Message of God - - and because they have gained celebrity status, they are accepted as the genuine article!

Many churches are now allowing false religions to hold equal standing with the teachings of Christ Jesus and seminaries are teaching future ministry leaders that they must embrace the teachings of all religions alike if The Church is to remain a viable institution in our society!

Woops! There is the problem - - we are NOT an institution, WE ARE THE EARTHLY BODY OF CHRIST JESUS, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS!

We are to be more than conquerors in Christ Jesus! We are to be leading the way in showing the world not only God's Love but GOD'S TRUTH ABOUT MANKIND - - that humanity is a race of sinners in need of reconciliation to God our Father and that Jesus Christ IS THE ONLY WAY TO THAT RECONCILIATION!

When are we going to begin to be more concerned with our ministry and mission than how much like the world we can be and still be loved by God?

When are we going to begin to deliver the message again that if people want "social security" they need spiritual security? When is the Church Community going to rise above the false teachings of humanism and sensual satisfaction and begin showing the world that Christ offers a DIFFERENCE - - that being a Christian is not having everything that the world has plus Jesus, but that being a Christian is HAVING WHAT THE WORLD CAN NEVER GIVE A PERSON - - ETERNAL LIFE!

When is the Church Community going to begin living in the reality of eternal life? Eternal life is not something that happens after our bodies die! Eternal life is KNOWING THE ONLY TRUE GOD AND KNOWING JESUS CHRIST WHOM THE FATHER SENT!

Answer: When each one of us decides that we will not settle for anything else!

What are you waiting for?

Many Blessings!
Dr. Timothy

My sentiments exactly! An excellent article that sounds an alarm that it is time for the Church to wake up and stop playing church. There's a hurting and dying world that needs hope that can only be found in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Nothing I like better than the "Truth." Thanks for sharing!
