I’m reading a challenging book today called Endued With Power: The Holy Spirit in the Church. I just read a thought-provoking quote from the book:
“If the church that is claiming to be Spirit-filled is not a missionary community that is living with a sense of urgency, then its members will be caught up in the rush to respectability and social accommodation” —Steven J. Land
(1) Do we have that sense of urgency? Are we living and working and sharing like today is the day Jesus could return?
(2) Or are we more concerned about what is socially acceptable and politically correct? Are we just playing church?
I pray that I am leading our church always into that first category. I pray that I personally am always living with that sense of urgency.
