For a long time, God has been ministering to me about the Church, and this week, I intend to share a lot concerning this. I know we are going to be blessed. Do feel free to comment and share with us your deep convictions concerning the same.
Every time the church is mentioned, most especially in the new covenant that we are in, it has never been about a building, facilities, fame across the land, or even popularity among men.
It has always been about God being at work in the hearts and lives of men.
Take the picture of the Early Church in Acts 2; it quite fascinates me how the Early Church began with a SOUND, like that of a rushing mighty wind, which drew many from across the whole earth to them.
It also fascinates me how they conducted their GIVING as per the time; they gave everything. The first converts went and sold everything so as to lay them at the apostle’s feet.
The same money was then used to take care of them who had surrendered all, ensuring their daily provisions well taken care of, and that the truth of Jesus Christ was firmly established in their hearts.
They were not concerned with building buildings from where they could hide in the comfort of themselves; they were all interested parties in the spreading of the Gospel. They, therefore, trained their subjects in the gospel, prayed, and took the time to fast, so that the truth of the gospel would firmly be bound in them. The truth that was to move to the ends of the earth. The Gospel of who Jesus Christ is.
This was the early church; that was not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.
Still, at this time, there are many who are the Church, without buildings, fame, or the glamor that is of men, but are continually in prayer, the word, and fastings, with an inward desire, for the GOSPEL TO EXTEND TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.
This week, I intend to share a lot about the Church of Jesus Christ, and one thing is so clear. Don’t camp inside buildings, singing songs and feeling sorry about the world. But rise, and see the transformation of many with the Gospel.
This was the fire that was upon the Early Church, not that of comfort on earth, but the discomfort on earth, all for the comfort already awaiting us in Heaven. CHRIST IS PREPARING A PLACE FOR ALL OF US.
Let us join in prayer.
FATHER, Let this be to us, just as it is in heaven. For yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory. Touch us with your fire, for this is the good pleasure of your will, let us be ablaze for You In your Name Jesus we pray, Amen.
