AS WE WERE FINISHING at our PUSH bldg in Galax today, a young man stopped by to see what PUSH was about. He was newly ordained and had a heart for feeding the homeless. His conversation was so indicative of many who have a heart to serve. He was frustrated with his church. They didn’t want to support what God had told him his Purpose was……..which was feeding the homeless. They wanted him to stay in their parameters and the Pastor was the visionary and only the Pastor.
Unless the church and Pastors start acknowledging that God is the Visionary and God is the leader, churches are going to continue to lose members. Yes, the Pastor is to be respected but Not worshiped. Yes there have to be some parameters BUT GOD sets the rules and is the visionary. It’s time for Pastors and churches to have an ear to hear what God is saying and get away from what people’s opinions are. Individuals, Communities and our Nation are hurting and need hands on individuals. God is 24/7. Why should we not think “the church” shouldn’t be as well.
It’s time to support those called by God even if it isn’t traditional. Stop trying to understand. Pray and Support what and who God has ordained.
