There has been lost the first and foremost importance of love, communication and brotherhood in the church.
In our process of moving forward with God's will in our lives and for the church, the body of Christ (God's people) got lost in everything else that is going on. We have forgotten our brothers and sisters in Christ and the love we should have for one another. If there were no body, the brotherhood, (the people) there would be no church.
Losing sight of the love of God for his body things become superficial. We can be doing everything we're to be doing for Christ and everything seems to be right but where is the love for your brother? If there is not love there is nothing. The doors are open, the lights are on, the cameras are rolling but the love for your brothers in Christ has disappeared.
Impersonal impacts no one. Never lose sight of where it all first began. To many times ministries have failed, church doors have closed because of losing sight of one thing. The love of God, for his people. To much emphases on being known or expanding and becoming more shines the wrong light on the real purpose and will of God in the eyes of the body of Christ. And too those on the outside watching us.
God has a great plan for his Church. But sometimes the lights of bigger, better and more than any one else could be the wrong message being sent. The sheep of the Fathers flock holds top priority over anything else. If the sheep wander looking for love somewhere else how many will be lost and who stands accountable for those sheep?
We are responsible for our bothers and sisters in Christ. God says, "love them more than ourselves". That means more than our ministries, our missions and yes even the things of the church. For without our love in brotherhood there would be no church. Where does love fit in everything that we are doing for Christ? If it doesn't come first then it is being done with the wrong intent. It's time too check our reasons for what it is we're doing in the Name of Jesus..
