What Do You Want Church?
The cup of suffering and the cup of blessing….
” . . . choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. . . . as for me and my house, we will serve The LORD.” Joshua 24:15
“Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left.” Isaiah 54:2-3
It strikes me that The Church is fast approaching a decision point that will, to a greater degree, dictate each individual church’s role in the present and coming move of The Holy Spirit.
I hear The Spirit of The LORD saying this, “Do you want revival, or not?
Do you want to serve Me?
Will you serve only some of My Plans?
Will you continue to serve only your own plans and programs?
Will you take the cup of suffering along with the cup of blessing?
Will you enlarge your tent — your vision and your church?
There is a holy disruption upon The Church now, and it will be as unpopular in some places as it will be popular in others.
It will be as welcome in some places as it will be unwelcome — even condemned — in others.
But the world is hungry for answers.
“There must be something else, something more, something better,” is the heart-cry of many.
If you want to take a Nation, you must start with the man in the street.
It is time to get out there and take The LORD to the people rather than expecting them to come to Him.
If you want it, you’ve got to go get it.
