TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHTS
Seeing is believing but it all starts with what we believe. Remember, others have their own beliefs. Ask the Lord for eyes to see how you can help others believe too!
THE SAME KING
Without the church, America would have no conscience. It would not make selfless choices without the Body of Christ. The church is so important right now as the days not only shorten, but darken.
This is going to make the church mad, but here goes: The problem in America isn’t that Islam is so big or so bad, or the haters among us are a threat. The problem is the church is so full of limp-wristed pansies. It’s ridiculous.
We’re not all the same, and because we’re not all the same, we think we have to bow down to the politically correct and fight each other.
We have black churches, white churches, Hispanic and Asian churches. We have men and women leaders. We’re denominational. We’re non-denominational. Some churches are rich. Some are poor. We all have different traditions and rites of passage. There’s a big difference in our methods and expressions. These things keep us at one another’s throats!
Here’s what I say to that: We’re different tribes, but we all have the same King!!
The Body of Christ is not supposed to look the same, act and be the same. We’re all supposed to have the same King. We’re supposed to act differently and have differences to attract a variety of people.
There’s nothing wrong with our differences. They add beautiful layers to the Kingdom. Those differences are our strength when we realize the church down the street is not our competition. Satan is. This world is.
Are you fighting the right enemy? Are you fighting against darkness or competing against the big church on the corner? Get in the right fight with the right people!
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, 2 fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. – Philippians 2:2
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO BATTLE DARKNESS WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS! PRAY FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST AND STOP FIGHTING THE WRONG ENEMY.
