ARE YOU A DIFFERENCE MAKER FOR GOD?????? Do you work for the do-little-sit-more Church? BE BOLD FOR JESUS!!!! HE GOES BEFORE YOU AND PAVES THE WAY! GO FOR JESUS!!!
This is such a AWESOME message for such a times as this! WOW! Thanks to Kris Vallotton from CHURCHLEADERS!!! ALL PRAISE AND GLORY TO GOD!!!!!!
In 1955 a 42-year-old black woman, exhausted from a hard day at work, refused to sit in the back of the transit bus. The southern bus driver warned her that her defiance would be cause for him to call the police and have her arrested. But she had had enough of white bigotry. She resented being judged by the color of her skin instead of by the integrity of her heart, so she steadfastly refused to move. Her name was Rosa Parks.
Back in the day……we called this message ‘tough love.’
I pray that you will share this with your Pastor, all Church leaders and congregants! I have stated over the years I am sick and tired of the scarcity of children and young adults in many Churches. I also see such a decline in baptisims in Churches, (How many baptisims has your Church officiated the last 3 years?) no children’s Sunday School, and sadly, a decline in Church attendance. Many good points are made here! Too many Churches are just hanging on with 10 to 20 folks. Leave your walls! Its called The Great Commission!
PS: I had a man from New Mexico tell me he had not witnessed a baptism in the Church he attends in 8 years!
I had a Pastor tell me here in New Mexico that he had not seen a baptism in the Church he left in 5 years!
And people wonder why we have such a movement of Satan in our communities.

As Christians, we are noticing religious attitudes and beliefs changing in our country and local communities. As individuals and as church leaders, we must adjust our ministry model accordingly.
We cannot continue to lament that our communities are becoming more secular while assuming a ministry model designed for a predominantly Christian culture will effectively reach them. More Here
