A call to go forward for Christ
Sunday is usually the day when fellow Christians gather to hear and study Godís word together, to once again marvel at Godís grace and mercy as well as to share in the life of our Church. Mostly we renew our commitment to live our lives as Christ wants us to, however there is often a challenge in Godís Word, the scriptures, a call for us to take action. Often too there is a failure to hear, or a refusal to go where God, our church or even our own conscience are all pointing us.
These few words tell what Christ asks of each of us as Christians in a prayer written by JD Greear which perfectly summarizes the one trend every church should focus on- the gospel message:
ďIn Christ, there is nothing I can do that would make you love me more, and nothing I have done that makes you love me less. Your presence and approval are all I need for everlasting joy. As you have been to me, so I will be to others. As I pray, Iíll measure your compassion by the cross and your power by the resurrection.Ē
Many are the pressures on us as Christians today from social, cultural and political trends in our country, and will be.
