The Church is a living organism
The church is a living organism!
It is empowered to move about throughout its community of residence with a message of eternal hope.
The “power” source is from God, the creator of the world we live in!
His command to the church is to “ go into all the world and make disciples of all the nations!”
This is not a suggestion it is a commandment! Evidence that resistance by the world to these kinds of efforts put forth by the church, is proof that the church is invading the territory Satan has laid claim to for himself.
But,…let the church arise and go in the Name of Jesus, to take back what Satan thinks is his! Let’s take back the people through invading prayer! Let’s take back the territory through living our faith boldly and courageously before a sin-loving world.
Sin and its devasting effect on children, families and even whole territories is increasing! But, the Bible still says, that “Where sin abounds,…Grace abounds much more!”
Here is a plain easily understood rendition of this verse taken from the “Message” Bible: “All that passing laws against sin did was produce more lawbreakers. But sin didn’t, and doesn’t, have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace.
When it’s sin versus grace, grace wins hands down.
All sin can do is threaten us with death, and that’s the end of it.
Grace, because God is putting everything together again through the Messiah, invites us into life—a life that goes on and on and on, world without end.“
