We have been stirred lately to see Jesus be the center of our lives. Paul said, “For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.” (1 Cor 2:2) Many are saying we as a church need to be more relevant or we need to adapt our message to changing times. Paul’s message was simple, “Jesus died for you and wants to save you.” Later Paul warned, “…I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.” (2 Cor 11:3) I fear that, as a church, we are turning away from the simplicity of knowing Jesus. At the end of our lives he isn’t going to evaluate how “relevant” we were to our generation. He isn’t going to evaluate if we were adaptable to what society desired for us to be. He is going to ask us the same question he asked Peter, “Who do you say that I am?” (Matt 16:15) There is a great delusion spreading over the church all over the nations. May we, as Peter did, submit our will to His, follow His Words, and only Him.
Young Lady Finds Shelter at Hope City
My associate worship leader, Stephanie, is the local outreach leader for Exodus Cry. Every week, they search the city seeking to rescue human trafficking victims. Recently, a seventeen year old women was on the side of the road holding a sign, “It’s either this or prostitution, and sex before marriage is a sin.” They spent time sharing with her about the freedom available through Christ, took her shopping for new clothes, and then to Hope City. One of our faithful staff members, Nicole, stayed up past 2am checking her in and getting her a bed. The young lady decided not to stay so please pray for her and for Stephanie as she continues rescuing ladies from human trafficking.
