Standing On The Authority Of God

What reputation do you have?  A while back I had asked you to ask others how they would describe you.  Hopefully you did and you did something positive dealing with it.  My heart has been sinking lately as I listen to churches.  Churches with preachers that no longer preach a prayed out message.  Instead, they give happy little speeches that are always timed.  Churches with congregations that moan about the music, the decor, or the people who attend.  All the while the world just stands back and mocks the Christians.  And we Christians let them.  Because we are too busy dividing up the body.  We are acting like our worst enemy.  We stand  offended  and jealous of everyone.  Why?…because instead of allowing the God appointed leaders to lead we think we have better ideas.  Better than God. Limb by limb the body is being destroyed.  We have been given the authority to cast out devils, to spread the gospel, to show the example of Christ.  Where is the desire of the church community?  Where is the love?  While talking to people, I can hear their spirits longing for a revival and as they continue to talk  I hear the carnal side of them describe the how.  Instead of just allowing the Holy Ghost to have control.  If we could stand still long enough to look at ourselves and see that we have work to do there first before pointing the fingers at others.  We just might find that we can’t do this without Him.  There is an old hymn where the lyrics are ” Standing, standing, I’m standing on the promises of God.”  Throughout the Bible you will find several promises that God has given to you.  So Stand Christian!  Stand on the authority and promises that have been given freely to you.
