OH CHURCH! THE BODY OF CHRIST! IF JESUS SAID WE ARE IN THE WORLD BUT NOT OF IT, WHY DO WE HUNGER AND THIRST FOR THE THINGS OF THE WORLD? WHY DO NOT WE HUNGER AND THIRST FOR THE LORD AND HIS KINGDOM…BEING ABOUT OUR FATHER’S BUSINESS…NOT OUR OWN. WE ARE NO LONGER OUR OWN BUT WE HAVE BEEN BOUGHT WITH A PRICE…THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS.

SET YOUR EYES ON THE THINGS OF GOD’S KINGDOM NOT THE WORLD’S. THE CHURCH IS IN THE WORLD AND OF THE WORLD THEREFORE ARE WE THE BODY OF CHRIST?

WE ARE TO OWE NO MAN A THING. WHY DO WE WORSHIP THE IDOL “CREDIT CARD”? WHY DO WE TRUST AND RELY ON IT? WE ARE SUPPOSE TO TRUST THE LORD WITH ALL OUR HEART, LEANING NOT ON OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING, ACKNOWLEDGING HIM IN ALL OUR WAYS AND HE WILL DIRECT OUR PATHS. HOW CAN WE DO THIS WHEN WE ‘CHARGE’ THINGS? THIS IS OF THE WORLD. MANY ARE IN SUCH DEBT NOW BECAUSE OF THIS IDOLATRY-A HOLE SO DEEP THEY CAN HARDLY SEE THE LIGHT ANYMORE. REPENT! REPENT! REPENT! TURN FROM YOUR WAYS, TURN TO THE LORD! REPENT! REPENT! REPENT!

THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROUTE TO ALL-EVIL. ARE WE SEEKING TO BUILD THE KINGDOM OF GOD OR OUR OWN KINGDOM? SEARCH YOUR HEART AND SEE. IT WILL ALL COME CRUMBLING DOWN IF YOU ARE NOT BUILDING ON THE ROCK (JESUS CHRIST-THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS) DO YOU SEEK TO BRING GLORY TO GOD, NOT YOURSELF OR YOUR MINISTRY? WOULD YOU BEFRIEND ANOTHER BROTHER EVEN THOUGH THEY DECIDED NOT TO GO TO ‘YOUR’ CHURCH? OR IS YOUR FELLOWSHIP STUCK WITHIN YOUR OWN four WALLS? BY OUR LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER, THEY WILL KNOW WE ARE HIS DISCIPLES. DO WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER WITH THE LOVE OF CHRIST? WILLING TO LAY DOWN OUR OWN LIVES FOR EACH OTHER? REPENT! REPENT! REPENT! ALLOW THE WORD OF GOD TO BURN IN YOUR HEART…BURNING AWAY ALL THE CHAFF. TAKE THE KINGDOM OF GOD SERIOUSLY. WE MUST NO LONGER ‘PLAY’ CHURCH BUT WE MUST BE THE CHURCH. THE BODY OF CHRIST -FUNCTIONING UNDER THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN UNITY AND POWER BRINGING GLORY TO GOD, OUR FATHER.
