We hear it from everyone, right.
Why can’t you get this thing done,now? You don’t have all day? Time is money. You know the deadline is tomorrow.
We are a people in a hurry, a, to do what next? oh yeah, the next thing on our list, and the list goes on, and on,and on, and on. But why?
What is Life? For us humans, it seems that we can’t seem to be still for anything, unless we are in ‘timeout'(so stupid). We can’t just sit still and smell the roses, drink a cup of coffee, talk to a neighbor, talk to our friends, talk to our family.
Mankind doesn’t know how. It has it’s priorities of its own, that is more important to be concerned about. It’s never to be about our family or close friends and their ‘needs’ that we are aware of but it is of our own ‘needs’ that we must fulfill first. It is as if we are the only ones on the planet.
And now their is this other creature that has risen upon us that taken over our lives, the pity card that we are somehow mistreated,un-cared for, and for all intensive purposes just trash, and we want everybody to look at us and do something about it.
What I want to point out to everyone, is that we are the cause of ‘all’ the problems in the world. It is because we have chosen ourselves to be ‘in charge’ of this world because we felt that we could do it better, than the God who actually created us. Mankind is fighting itself over which ‘group’, religious sect, race, people, nation, can ‘do it’ better. It’s like watching some kids on the playground trying to prove themselves to be the ‘one and only’ “Savior’ of the school! This scenario is not just happening in the United States but all over the world. Mankind is fighting amongst itself to try and prove ‘who’ is the one to lead the world. According to history, it has never happened yet, and the odds are that it will never happen.
To the ‘Ekklesia’, I say, because we the ekklesia are only the ‘Ekklesia’ in Name only, we will see this continue as a reoccurring theme in our world. The Ekklesia is not ‘being’ the church. We are playing the ‘church’. We are playing the ‘those people in that building on the corner’, that we never see what they always talk about that they say that they ‘do’ and represent as ‘Christ’.
We, as bodies of Christ, are to be the ‘action’ of Christ in the world, in our neighborhood, on a daily basis,day after day,consistent with our message to the world. It is not the model of ‘Church’ building that is getting the message across to the world, it has failed in it’s message, it is when we as an example of who Christ is and does that will make the difference in the world. It will be that one raindrop in the water that makes that first ripple that spreads the ‘good news’, it will continue with the next raindrop, and the next raindrop, and the next raindrop and next the whole world will be filled with the Glory of the Lord in his Holy and everlasting water.
But as I started with, it is in God’s own timing as to how,when,where, and with who it starts with.
This is why God’s timing is perfect!
Stay vigilant o Ekklesia!
