I had a dream……………
…..that churches would share buildings, resources, and even staff to better reach their communities.
……that churches would not compare themselves to the church down the street.
…..that Christians would not view non-believers as the enemy. There is one Enemy, his name is Satan, and he is much worse than someone whom does not hold same religious beliefs as you.
…..that the Church would focus on Jesus FIRST before any other doctrines and traditions. Doctrines and traditions are nice……but if you do not have Jesus……you don’t have Christianity. You now have _ _ _ _ _ _ ianity. (no Jesus)
…..that we would be more concerned with pleasing God than in pleasing others.
……that we would be different from the world; however, we would not be distance ourselves from the world as “holier than thou”.
…..that we would invest in the children and youth of the church more in terms of programs, staffing, etc.
…..that our churches would be better with money. Yes, tithes belong to God but people worked hard for that money in today’s rough economy. Maybe we should actually pray before we make financial decisions in the church.
…..that our leaders would get along. Enough said.
What is your dream for the Church?
