Church is stuck inside!
What good is being redeemed if we keep it a secret, and do not share it?
A good pastor friend wrote this on his Facebook page:
God has given the Church the power to influence. We have been redeemed to reign and have dominion. This is the posture of which change is created. Let’s take our place Church. Now is the season!!!
This is very true.
Pastors are to equip the saints.
But what if the saints never do anything with what they have been taught?
My thought and reply was this:
Some do a lot for the Lord….but ….most of the time, many / most churches never leave the building.
We need to leave the building and do more while there is still time.
Church is a place of fellowship and worship.
But it is also a place where we learn our obligation to share what goes on there with others.
Jesus told us ALL to preach the gospel, not just enrich ourselves.
Being enriched without sharing is a waste.
It is like an apple tree full of apples, and no one eats them.
If no one eats what is on the tree, then it is a waste of time for the apple tree to produce apples.
If we are trees with fruit, then it is our job to make sure others are fed from our tree.
We do not keep the apples to ourselves.
