Are people Drawn to or Driven from:
– The Church
– The Gospel
– The Godhead
– The Faith
Why is my church not growing? Where is everyone? Why is the church up the street growing? What is wrong with my church? Why are we driving people from our midst?
Are they offended by the Joy of the Lord?
I don’t think so, there is too little Joy.
Are they afraid of the Power of the God?
I don’t think so, there is so little Power.
Is the problem the Love of the Lord?
I don’t think so, we do not practice His Love.
It must be Gods Mercy and Grace?
You think? Are we Merciful? Do we display Grace?
Are we as Preachers, really teaching or do we just preach?
” Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
Even with this blog, I find myself preaching more than teaching. We need to admonish in Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual songs…..singing and memorizing the Word of God.
We can find and share the Love of the Lord as we sing of His Glory.
The steps of a good man. …
He that dwelleth in the secret place…
Give ear to my words, oh Lord…
The Lord God is a sun and shield. …
I will sing unto the Lord. …
We are a chosen generation. …
I love You Lord, and I lift my voice….
Singing the Word of God has helped me memorize scriptures, find my way out of depression, understand the Promise of God.
It is hard to condemn when singing of Gods love and grace. We need to learn how to share His Love in song.
