I was in a discussion today with a fellow pastor about the passionate issues of our day. As we discussed gay marriage, the economy, and other hot topics, something began to occur to us.
At first he said, “The Church is off focus. It’s off it’s target.”
Then, I thought, “Wait. It’s more. So is the government.”
BOTH are “off their game.”
The Church isn’t being salt and light… and we need to learn how again.
The government is in the short term narcissistic game of thinking only of short term goals and forgetting how to truly govern people.
I don’t see the government getting back on their game. This I know… THE CHURCH better get back in focus! We are drifting badly and truly need to seek a new baptism of power… and understanding what the KINGDOM is all about.
