Bible Reading: Acts 19: 18 – 20, Matthew 16:18

Memory Verse: So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed. Acts 19:20 (KJV)

Sometimes, you will see a 3- storey building housing three different Churches. Atimes, a denomination will have to vacate a hall for another denomination to use for the same Sunday service. Worst still, pastors from the same denomination fight each other over proximity of their churches to each other. O Lord, what has befallen our generation? Please don’t get me wrong. I am not against establishment of churches because God has given His Generals, our fathers in faith different mandates.
However, I believe there should be a structure, and ultimately, the quality of lives of the congregants must be more important in our church administration and decision making process than any other thing. If we will borrow a lead from the early church, perhaps we can say that we need more house fellowships than churches especially for effective follow up and discipleship. There are so many Churches, yet our world is still full of enmity, kidnaping, hatred, corruption, arson, tribalism, witchcraft, etc.
It should concern you if there are so-called fire brand churches on a street, and yet, there is a brothel or beer parlor thriving successfully on that same street. Where really is the revival fire? That will not happen in the days of John Knox who shut down the beer parlors in an entire country. He wailed unto God on his knees, “Give me Scotland or I die”. Now, that takes me to the next question: What really are we Pastors preaching? When last did your pastor talk about Living the crucified life, Absolute Surrender, Sacrificial obedience, The Cross, Righteousness, Holiness, New birth, Genuine salvation, Heaven, The Second coming of Christ, or Hell, etc.
We need sound teachers of the word especially for Sunday worship service and weekly Bible study. Not until we are deliberate about the spiritual growth of the members of the Church, we shall continue to go on this vicious cycle of little or no transformational impact in the lives of the brethren while we are so full of activities. O Lord, purge your Church and let it start from me.
Quote: Change starts with you.
Prophetic Decree: We scatter all the deceitful activities of the devil in the body of Christ, in Jesus name.
