Church On A Pedestal

Interesting title, eh? This was on my heart this morning and I wanted to share this from the Lord. People are worshipping church. Yes, worshipping church and church going. I have heard people tell me, " We need to be there every time the doors open!" So afraid to miss a meeting, for fear they will go to hell. Literally!! Church can be an idol, just like any kind of idol that is out there. Idols are what you worship. Idolatry is the practice. "the worship of idols or excessive devotion to, or reverence for some person or thing." Excessive devotion. I think that is a good way to put it. Some people have excessive devotion to CHURCH GOING. They are more focused on everything that makes up services and the committees, etc. , rather than focusing on the reason why they are there.... JESUS. Now, I am not saying that it is bad to go to church. Not at all. But what happens is that people go to church for an hour on Sundays and then not BE the church and take what they learned and spread it to others. I can't tell you how many times I have spoken with people who have NEVER ministered to ANYONE outside of church. Most likely because they are not taught how to do it! Plus they are filled full of fear. And that's the pastor's fault.... This is what the Lord spoke to me today... "I am more concerned with what peoople are doing the other hours of the week..." Ouch. Praying can be done anywhere. Seeking God can be done anywhere. Getting answers from God can be received anywhere. Anywhere you are... because He lives inside of you, His church body. He will speak from His Spirit to your Spirit. A church building is just a building. God can there too, of course. But don't think that is the ONLY place where He dwells Stop worshipping church going and the pastor and get back to worshipping HIM...
