There are so many Churches, so many Pastors, so many frustrations.
Pastors who love the Lord, who desire to make Disciples of Christ. Unfortunately, their Church isn’t growing. Frustration… after Frustration.
There could be several reasons.
- You have reached the number of people you can Disciple. Are you having success? Is your flock doing the work?
- Are you teaching the full council of God? Probably not. Prosperity, poverty, tithing, giving, Gifts of the Spirit, healing, Old Testament, New Tesrament, Sin, Sanctification, justification.
It is almost impossible for one man to teach the full council. We all know what we know, teach what we know, believe the parts of the Word, we believe.
Some teach humility, poverty, justification. Others teach prosperity, tithing, giving, Sanctification.
Some teach about the Spiritual, others focus on the Natural.
These are all valid Biblical truths. How can that be, you would have to be double minded…. NOT SO.
We must realize, there is a time in our lives for all these things. Do not get stuck in any one, they are all in His Word, there to guide us to truth.
We must ask the Holy Spirit to lead, guide, direct. Allow others to teach the parts we don’t understand. Check it against the Word.
If you think it is wrong, but it is in the Word, it is YOU, WHO IS IN ERROR.
King James Version (KJV)
“The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”
If it is in the Word, it is profitable for us. If we don’t understand it, ask the Holy Spirit to show you. DO NOT JUST REJECT IT OUT OF HAND. IT IS FOR ALL OF US.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
We must take off Doctrinal glasses, read the Word, accept the Truth of the Word, over the Doctrine of our Denominations.
Let the Word and the Holy Spirit, lead us to all truth. Open our eyes and hearts, to receive the life, truth and power of Your Word, Oh Lord. Amen
