THE EMPOWERMENT ZONE BLOG: MISHANDLING THE THINGS OF GOD………. A TIMELY WORD TO ENCOURAGE, EXHORT AND EDIFY:Vol 8, Blog 2
MISHANDLING THE THINGS OF GOD
This is an opinion blog regarding behavior(s)in the Holiness church:”Mishandling the things of God”..I believe that in our efforts to celebrate, speak well, demonstrate how impactful a message or a messenger was, our language has become too common….Church conferences and conventions are not “preaching, singing, playing, and dancing, competitions.” However, we now release such statements in the atmosphere like..”shut the conference down after that message or “I feel bad for anyone who has to preach following…” What are we really saying and declaring..Gods anointing is always available, and really each succeeding service and/ or workshop should go higher and higher, no matter who the messenger is. We describe the anointing with such words and phrases like ” bananas,beast, killing”. What are we implying and declaring, is this just a message that entertained me, or have I been challenged to do better? How many were saved, how many who came to the service with serious issues, received the answer/ solution in service.? Think about Gods Glory and what his anointing is…and how we speak of God…REVERENCE HIM, REVERENCE HIS ANOINTING…My brothers and sisters, we must do better. Let us try to make an effort to declare the wonderful works of God and how HE MOVED DURING THE SERVICE AND WORKSHOPS….Let me , let us GLORIFY GOD AND declare HIS WONDERFUL WORKS..
