Which is bigger a Gnat or a Camel?
Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. - Matthew 23:24
In this world most of us who like to hear what we like and what we do not like even if it is going to change our lives and make us a better person, we will ignore. Like I explained in my mail dated 15/03/08 - 'Hear the Lord'; we are all uncomfortable to surrender completely to the Lord. We find ways and excuses to stick to the ways of the evil one.
Just yesterday I was telling someone how one of the places I go the preach God's Word, some Hindus (hardcore worshipers of kali) surrendered themselves to Jesus along with their wives. The person who I was speaking too, was more interested in finding out which sect of Christianity I was changing them to, not the fact that they had surrender completely to Jesus or the many souls from their lot, whom they have brought to the Lord!
When we believe in one - Lord Jesus Christ and if we are lead by one - Holy Spirit of God then why sects?
It is only because the spirit of error is working among us. We do not hold on to the Spirit of Truth who reveals the Word of God to us.
Do you question your church leaders or elders or their knowledge on the World of God?
If they do not know the guidelines or instructions from God, how are they going to lead the congregation?
You will be surprised that 90% of the so called spiritual leaders are illiterate to the Word of God; they have not even read the whole Bible even after many years of so called study and service of God! If they do not know God how are they going to guide you and others to Him? Ask them what do they spend most of their time reading? And I will tell you the secret - NEWSPAPERS! Most of them are addicted to the newspapers. Ask them what is happening in the world and they are up to date on the smallest matter.
Let's stop searching for gnats and remove the camels. Wake up your church leaders, ask them to explain you the Word of God and if they do not answer you right, explain it to them. If they feel ashamed, no problem, they will soon learn. You will save them and those whom they guide.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, I prayer for the so called leaders of the congregations, who themselves are lost. Father appoint many messengers to bring them to light and save your sheep whom they are guiding. I pray this from my heart Father God, in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
[ Reference Scriptures ]
4 To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:
6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.
7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
