The church of Christ is becoming insensitive and losing ground to the camp of the enemy.
The church must wake up from its deep sleep to regain its honorable position.
Paul gave a farewell speech to elders of Ephesians’ church, and his words were full of prophecy and warning to the end-time churches. Paul said,
“Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God. Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock” (Acts 20:26-29).
Serious Lesson for The Church of Christ
Jesus Christ founded the church for the purpose of benefiting the Christian community and make them relevant to heaven.
Christ – the Redeemer purchased the church with his own blood through his death on the cross (and resurrection from the grave) so that all people can fellowship and meet God’s mandate of holiness, and qualify for heaven.
It is unfortunate that the church of Christ has digressed from its fundamental principles and has chosen unprofitable paths.
The same church that Jesus Christ started with a prototype of God’s true love has abandoned its traditions.
It is now losing its Christ-centered principles to some unbefitting explorations.
Our present-day churches have become politically conscious, and our spiritual affairs are now mostly moderated by the politicians.
A few church leaders that have chosen to pursue the clear gospel pattern that honor Jesus Christ has been alienated.
They are labeled as fanatics because they have refused the hellish status quo.
Call to Action
Jesus Christ has his arms wide open to receive our churches again.
He expects us to repent and return to his true love. Our religious establishments are called to repent and turn a new leaf so that Christ can bless us.
If we truly repent and turn to Christ, he will demonstrate his power in our churches again.
We shall witness miracles like the bible time, and have God’s name to be praised.
Christ will honor us if we choose to revisit our honorable Christian traditions that support bible views.
God will reward the church of our present days that uphold his standard of righteousness.
That is, our churches and different denominations must stop promoting promiscuity!
We must stop misrepresenting church setting as a political arena. We must also stop other unbefitting practices so that God can take all glory.
God will truly bless our church leaders that make him proud.
Jehovah will award his crown of righteousness for all Christians who faithfully serve and represent him well in this world.
True believers will be duly rewarded in heaven.
“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done” (Revelation 22:12 NASB).
Prayer For Church Restorations
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, please redeem our churches again.
Please make our church body become relevant again and remain heavenly worthy!
Let our church leaders start to fear and obey your instructions. Also, help members of our different churches to take their heavenly mandates seriously.
Let the truth of your gospel be preached from our church altars; let true love be demonstrated among brethren. Save the church of Christ!
Please, establish your standard of righteousness in our churches so that unbelievers can be motivated to serve you.
When the world clocks finally stop ticking and the end comes, give us the grace to be ready and rapturable at your coming.
Give us Christians the heart of true love to reach out to the lost and be fruitful for you.
For in your precious name – Jesus Christ – I pray. Amen!
