Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God's household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. - 1 Timothy 3:14-15
Dear Jesus, Your church is the pillar and foundation of the truth. That's why your heart aches when we let our churches grow complacent, distracted and inactive. That's why you hurt when pastors teach things foreign to your word and ways. That's why you intervene and interrupt our churches when we are fighting and competing with each other. Oh Jesus, make my church a strong pillar for the truth so we hold your gospel high to confront the world with your love and do not crumble under the weight of our own weaknesses. Amen.
God wants every church to be a healthy place for sin sick souls to be healed.
