As we go about building the Church — when I say building the Church, I mean helping people, reaching the lost, being a city on a hill, a light for everyone to see, being salt and light, the last beacon of hope — His name will be the Hope of all the world (Matthew 12:21).
Building the wall:
We need to keep building the wall (the Church), no matter who comes against us with fear and intimidation. Way too many pastors and churches are weak. They believe the Church can be dictated to by a lost world. Out of fear they call it concern, being caring. They have shut their doors. They have stopped being the hope of the world. They have decided to acquiesce to an ungodly governor.
Acquiesce means to accept something, but without protest. This is why we have changed our services to protests: we are protesting for our religious freedom, being free to help those who are hurting and afraid, those who are broken, hopeless, relapsing into addiction. That is why the church should remain open.
We must decide what we believe and what we will follow. You can follow the lost world or follow the word of God. Are you going to stay on the wall working or come down to your peril? Our city, our state is depending on us to continue to stand watch and continue to build the wall — the Church.
It’s always our choice. Which will it be for you?
Just a thought,
