Prayer

  • Lord, please heal our land...2 Chronicles 7:14
  • Lord, protect those working on the front-lines, those serving the sick and those in essential ministries
  • Lord, let all Christians and churches reach-out with hope and love while people’s hearts are open
  • Lord, how can I bless my church financially during these challenging days
  • Lord, please use me to bless others in Jesus’ name

We are praying for you today…

A Tale

Apparently, the person in question had a dream in which he was being shown around heaven. He was shown three separate rooms, two enormous and one quite small.


The guide showed him into the first room where there were many angels, too many to count, sorting out all the prayer requests and categorizing them ready to present to the Almighty. They worked 24/7 and, despite the myriads of angels, were quite unable to keep up with their work.

The second room was of a similar size with as many, maybe more, angels who were recording the many answers to prayer.

The third room was much smaller with only one angel in it who was crying with boredom and spent most of the time asleep with so little to do. It seems that his job was to sort out the thanksgivings for answers to prayer.

The remedy: remember to say Thank You!

We have become complacent

We go to Church or listen to the services online, we praise the Lord God in worship music. But we don’t have the zeal to spread the Gospel. I know that some of you do ask people to church and for that we are all grateful, reaching out to the lost and dying world.

But what about the rest of you. Do you share your faith with the people that are outside of the circle of your church?

We are all a part of the body of Christ!

1 Corinthians 12:12

For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

Paul praised the church of the Thessalonians, for their work of spreading the Gospel of Christ not only there but to the people in Macedonia and Achaia and abroad (AU-K-AU)

1 Thessalonians 1:8

For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.

So why, are we hiding His (Christ’s) message from our community or anywhere else. We have forgotten our calling to share the message of Jesus Christ to the world.

It used to be that Christians were excited about sharing the message to other people.

We need to find our way back to share His message.

Whether it be by word of mouth, tracts, phone, through the Internet or standing on a street corner, by whatever means possible, like Christ is coming tomorrow and we want everyone to make it.

I remembered when I first became a Christian that I had to tell others about Him. I wanted to share it with anyone who would listen.

We have become dossal in our effort to spread the Gospel. It’s not just the Pastor’s job to spread the Gospel, but the call is to everyone that know Christ Jesus as their personal savior.

It used to be that Christianity was the in the forefront in our churches, community, state, country and the world. We had set the tone of everything from family matters, communities, government and nations

But now we just hide and let every other groups, set the expectations for our nation and the world.

Just like the riots across the country are setting the expectations in the United States. We need to get as radical about sharing the Gospel message.

Pray and ask God about what he would have you do to get out and share Christ and His message to everyone around you.

Let’s become radical for Christ once again.
