Where do you stand in the building of the Church?
Nehemiah 3: 4 -
And next unto them repaired Meremoth the son of Urijah, the son of Koz. And next unto them repaired Meshullam the son of Berechiah, the son of Meshezabeel. And next unto them repaired Zadok the son of Baana.
The Lord in continuing to speak to us on the topic - the Church, and today is addressing to our role in the Church.
In most churches there are 2 groups of people the active people and the passive people. The active group are part of the service and other activities of the church and the passive group are like the audience they attend.
In the book of Nehemiah we see all were part of the building of the wall. The Lord is telling us there is no audience in the church; all are supposed to be part of the building of the Church. Also like the portion of the wall each one did connected with the portion the other was working on and in turn was all connected to form just one wall, so also the church we are part of is connected to the other churches and is part of the one Church in Christ.
As Christians and believers in the salvation by the Lord Jesus Christ, are called to be witnesses to His death and resurrection. We are commission to continue His work on earth of bring His lost sheep to Him. To be mouths through which the Master's voice can be heard by His sheep. To be hand and feet that continues the great work of the Lord in His people.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, forgive us due to our lack of understanding and our carnal minds we have broken the House of God into numerous pieces. Lord, help us to be of one mind, one heart, and one understanding. Help us to know to reach that oneness we need to continue holding hands on the journey. Help us realize it is not by our wisdom or our ability that we will reach this oneness but only by our surrender to the Holy Spirit...
