Is God There?
Is God present in your church? I know it sounds crazy, but God is not involved in every congregation. Just because something bears a resemblance to a place of worship, does not mean that God is being worshiped there. Here are a few quick questions to ask yourself about the congregation you fellowship with.
When God is absent from church:
People are under the bondage of sin.
Man is being glorified.
Nobody really changes.
When God is present in a church:
There is freedom from bondage.
Jesus gets all the attention and the credit.
The people begin to look more like Him.
“May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.” 1 Thessalonians 3:13
