Despite the world’s most prolific spiritual network of houses of worship, media, schools and organizations, the Church in American is shrinking.
Why is this?
Churches do not need a business plan. They need a spiritual plan. Its foundation is Papa’s truth, and its CEO is Jesus.
The Church is not a business. It is a living organism— the people of God.
Making paradigms of reason and intellect ineffective in equipping Christians with a biblical worldview and nourishing spiritual transformation. A transition from a church— business mindset to a Kingdom mindset is necessary. This requires strength, determination, perseverance and a willingness to take risks.
What does this look like?
Compassionate. Being the hands and feet of Jesus.
Trusting in Papa’s love and goodness.
Unconditionally obeying Him.
As Christ becomes your focus, godliness is integrally interwoven into your spiritual DNA. Not only can you hear the voice of the Good Shepherd when He speaks. Others hear His voice when you speak and extend His compassion.
I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you took Me into your home. I needed clothes, and you gave Me something to wear. I was sick, and you took care of Me. I was in prison, and you visited Me.
