Let it begin with me, Lord
Help me find the way, Lord on bended knee
Let it begin with me, Lord
Many hearts are broken, in His name I plea
Let it begin with me, Lord
Weary souls are hungry, open my eyes to see
Let it begin with me, Lord
Souls are lost and dying, from sin to be set free
Let it begin with me, Lord
By grace, through faith, help me speak bravely
Let it begin with me, Lord
God has no limitations, Nor has no boundary
Let it begin with me, Lord

Why are new people not coming into our churches? Oh, occasionally you may have a transfer from another part of the country. Or you may have a sporadically visit, from a stranger whom never returns. ( 1 Peter 3:15 )

Most people, who visit a church, are truly looking for genuine worship. Not just a "rock band" and "fairy tale" stories. ( 2 Peter 1:5-18 ) And when they don't find the proper spirit, they will just move on. ( Matthew 22:36-40 )

In addition, while I am on my " christian soap box" , is this new church phenomenon, of "meet and greet" serving a purpose ? Or, is it just hindering the presence of the Holy Spirit ? I have sensed, what I feel was a very clear working of the Holy Spirit after singing some very good quite "Praise & Worship" songs, only to have the Spirit suddenly disappear, as the service was broken up by the "meet and greet" segment of the service. Call me a dinosaur, if you may, but that's just how I feel. Yes, I do believe in the " old time religion". The "Spirit Filled Religion" that is. ( 2 Cor 5:10 )

I have honestly observed some members of the congregation remain in their seats during this brief time of "meet & greet" fellowship. Here again, am I just being "picky" ?

So, what is the purpose of our local church? I contend our churches should be "missionary churches". To the local population first, then to the utter most parts of the world. In fact, was that not the last sermon Jesus preached. ( Acts 1:8 )

How long has it been since someone from a local church knocked on your door, to invite you to their Sunday service? Or better still, how long has it been since you played that reverse role of knocking on your neighborhood doors. So, what does the scripture say about these thoughts? ( Psalm 66:16) ( Proverbs 11:30 ) ( 2 Cor 5:18-20 ) ( 1 Peter 3:15) ( 1 Peter 4:11 )

So, let's go to work, sharing "the Gospel of Jesus Christ".( 1 Cor 3:6-9 ) ( Ephesians 4:11-16 )


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
