Truth in Love – blog entry

“God goes where He’s wanted.” Philip Yancey

A group might ask, ‘Why is God not moving among us? Why is nothing happening, here at our _________?’ Most likely the reason is God is not wanted there. God may have been invited but He is not truly desired.

It is much like an office party you intend to have at your house one weekend. You really want to have the party, you really want the company of all your coworkers and you dream about all the fun everyone will have. What you do not want however is for the boss to come. Yet, if you have half a brain, you are not going to have a weekend get-together with the entire office and not invite your boss. That would be career suicide. Therefore, what do you do; you invite the boss even though secretly within your heart you do not really want the boss to be there. When and if he shows up you will make nice and kiss up to him as need; but your heart wishes something would have happened, which prevented him from making it to your well planned, well organized, much anticipated and greatly desired party.

Do you really want the boss there? Is God really invited into ____________?

Spiritual/Political Disclaimer:

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

  1. Many Christ-followers cry out that America is no longer a Christian nation and that may be true. If true, how do we change that? This post smacks us all right between the eyes with the answer. If we want America to return to the foundation our founding fathers established, then let it first begin with me. In the words of Joshua, “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15) I am afraid, however, not enough of us want truly and personally invite God to invade our space and crash our party. I pray more and more of those who claim allegiance to Christ will personally make the same declaration as Joshua coupled with a true conviction of heart and then allow God to radically reshape them into His likeness. Then, we may see America return to her roots. Thanks for the reminder!
