Let's Stop...And Then Let's Do

And we back away.

We cover our eyes and turn a cold shoulder.  

We allow ourselves to be moved by smooth talkers and the "learned."

We take someone else's perspective of the scriptures as gospel and infallible.

We fill our calendar with busy work about the Kingdom in place of work in the Kingdom. 

We get bogged down in theological discussions.

We cripple ourselves and allow others to cripple us so that we say nothing, do nothing, write nothing,

We spend more time questioning and doubting God than we do talking to Him.

So fearful are we of saying the wrong thing, we grow mute. 

We spend so much time dissecting the scriptures that we lose sight of what God is saying to us through them.

We do things our way and hold so fast to our truths that we miss The Truth

Let's stop doubting and start listening. 

Let's spend time daily reading and speaking to God about His Word and then listening for His voice to answer our questions. 

Let's spend more time seeking who Jesus is than we do asking others who they think He is. 

Let's put our questions and concerns to the Lord and allow The Holy Spirit to work in us without preconceived notions of what that will look like. 

Let's believe...really believe...that God can do all that He says He can.

Let's allow our faith to be made plain by our words and actions together, in unison.

Let's stop being blinded and deafened by the noise and distraction in this world. 

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17
