Inward Focus


Church Family,

This Sunday we are going to begin prayer walking a neighborhood. This neighborhood has a high percentage of people who do not know Jesus as Lord. Why? Why prayer walk? Any time a church is not focus on Christ in a way that points them to reach the next generation(children/youth) and those outside the church, that church is focused on itself. It is all about them and not about Christ.

Micah 3:5 Thus says the LORD concerning the prophets who lead my people astray, who cry “Peace” when they have something to eat but declare war against him who puts nothing into their mouths.

What is the main concern of the prophets? Is it to reach the lost? Minister to the next generation? No, their concern is their comfort. This also became the concern of the people of Israel. They no longer advanced the name of God. They now only cared about what met their physical desires. In fact, they would go so far as to declare that God had given them “Peace”. In other words, don’t worry about reaching others, God is happy with us as long as we are comfortable.

Can I encourage you to search your walk with Christ? Is your walk strongest when you have what you want or when God is leading you? Are you willing to give up physical peace to see others come to Christ? Is “Peace” with others greater than telling others about Jesus? The Jews were united, but their unity wasn’t from God, it was against Him. Is your church willing to leave the 99 and to go find the 1?

Reminders:

  1. A HUGE Thank You to everyone who helped make Mother’s Day so wonderful yesterday!
  2. We begin Prayer Walking Sunday at 5:30pm. More details will come later this week.
  3. Graduate Sunday June 3rd. We are looking for pictures of the graduates. A baby pic, school age, and now or cap and gown pic. See Terri Poston or Andi Brown for more details.

Love, Serve, Go
