Friday Quote

>> Friday, August 29, 2008

There are so many statistics of people who don't go to church anymore because they've been hurt and offended by the people in the church.

I recently read about a number of people that were surveyed, 75% of them would like to become Christians. But 45% of those people didn't want anything to do with the church.

I realize that we as humans can easily offend others and also get offended easily ourselves. We get hurt and run off and poopoo in the corner, like spoiled undisciplined little kids. I am amazed that God continues to love us and nurture us and train us and discipline us etc. If I were God.....I would make great use of the lightening bolts!

God wants us to become those people who will not offend others, but will love people into the Kingdom. I believe that He wants us to toughen up also and not be easily offended. His heart is that He would be a Father with a family that loves each other. Think of your own kids when they have sibling rivalry. Don't ya just hate that?

It's time for the church to grow up and walk in obedience to the command of loving our neighbors as ourselves. It's time to die to our own self and our own emotions of the flesh. It's time for us to mature in our walk with God so that we can be an example and a light to those around us.

Let's let our light so shine before men that they see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Blessings on your weekend!
