Church people

By Paul Stanley

The whirlwind of church continues to catch people up and toss them about; kind of like the tornado scenes from the movie "Twister." Not unlike the debris scattered about in the movie, good and well-meaning people often find themselves scattered about after a "twister" makes it way into the church.

The sad part in all this that it is often (in my observation) a storm that could have been avoided if folks would just take the time to talk, And by that I mean talk to each other and not at each other, or even more so, about each other!

We must understand that we have not only dedicated out hearts and lives to Christ, but also to His bride, the church. We have stood up and told the enemy that we are in the fight. It is not a small matter to do so, because when you jump into the fight, you will get a taste of battle! So when you take one on the chin, why do you act so surprised?

I would like to think that if I were in a battle, I would have a good crew with me who is committed to the cause and who are willing to lay personal and often petty issues to the side for the greater good.  But often in the church that does not seem to be the case and we continue to be our own greatest enemy in winning the war on evangelizing the world.

We are like John the Baptist in a sense, who was sent to pave the way for the Messiah. That is our job now as well. You and I are privileged to pave the road where the King of Kings comes into the hearts and lives of the lost and dying, a people, by the way, that He is crazy about! We must be in this together and quit making the job of the enemy so easy. This is not a thing exclusive to one church by the way; all churches, regardless of size, know this battle.

There will be times when you have to move on, sometimes it is just the way it goes. But allow me to encourage you that in church relationships, whatever they may be, before you give up or give in; get together, and lovingly seek the Holy Spirit's direction, intervention and power in your lives. it is called seeking the will of God. He has a task for us as His church, and we must present a united front in the battle.

I already know we win because I have read the back of the book! Take a look for yourself. And since we know we already win, why do we even give the enemy the pleasure of seeing us act as if we are not sure?

The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and they are saved! And they avoid being scattered by the storm!
