WHAT REALLY MATTERS FOR A CHURCH TO FUNCTION AS THE BODY OF CHRIST?
The very important thing that matters most to God Himself is LOVE. And the reason that our faith keeps growing in God is LOVE.
# God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides continually in him. There is nothing greater than love of God, in this world that can bring peace in us (1 John 4:16)
When you are gathering for a corporate prayer or church, do not go with an expectation for a miracle & break through, Go with an expectation to fellowship with God, because when you seek God with all your heart you will find him and when you find him all your worries and other problems will vanish away.
Jesus was able to do miracles by only when people believed that he can do, though there was news about his miracles performed, in the end it’s the faith and love that mattered.
Like example women suffered about 12 years from blood issues, her faith and love towards Jesus healed her. (Mark 5:25), even with a touch of cloth.
The secret behind this, God draws you toward him & shows you his love, that’s where you taste more love and faith, Heb 10:22. And when you start experiencing his love, your faith rise up and all your guilt is gone away, Now you will fall in love with God more then before, this is the exact point of fellowship with God, where miracle breaks out in your life.
In the same way, Churches should experience the Love of God, then Gifts. Gifts are given to build the kingdom of God but above all, it is the Love of God, which activates all our gifts. The church is a place where you will prosper and be blessed at the same time it’s very important about our motive and intention you are in the church, whether to serve or to be recognizable to others or pleasing men.
It is saddening to see, that churches are using God for their own benefit but not for the will of his kingdom. They are using Holy Spirit for demonstration, but not to expand his kingdom.
Be careful you will never come to know when the Holy Spirit will leave the church,because without him the church cannot grow, days of Acts cannot come back.
Its time we put aside the worldly plans and set out mind above to his will & renew, be ready to serve real God and his purpose.
The church is the place where God dwells in and let us experience the love of God , keep loving one another with all our heart, like the way Jesus did.
I will be back with more, God Loves you all,
Blessing, Ps Enoch
