Proper representation

The church is in an interesting state today. There are a lot of churches doing good stuff but so many of the people in those churches are longing for something more. Long time Christians don’t want to hear the same stories they have been hearing since they were a kid and new believers are seeking something they can’t get in other organized clubs or meetings. Everyone really wants the same thing but they may not fully realize how to verbalize that desire. What they want is a real tangible encounter with God. Here’s a news flash for you: that’s why you are on the earth! Giving people the encounter they need is your primary mission. You were created to carry the presence of God with you everywhere you go. Supernatural activity should be part of your normal lifestyle. Joy should overtake sadness and depression, love should replace hate and unforgiveness, demons should run away in fear, and sickness and disease should disappear as soon as you walk into a room. Jesus changed the environment of everywhere he went because he knew his mandate. “On earth as it is in heaven” is not a catch phrase or wishful thinking; it is a mandate to transform the earth so it looks like heaven. People will flock to churches by the thousands if they know God is doing something real and tangible because they crave the encounter, we all crave that encounter. Let’s set the atmosphere for people to have the encounter they need. All it takes is one encounter with God to forever change a person and enough of those encounters will forever change the earth.
