Agree or Disagree? "We are too much influenced by the world and
too little controlled by the Spirit." -Tozer
We need a revival!
We need a revival of consecration to death,
a revival of happy abandonment to the will of God that will laugh
at sacrifice and count it a privilege to bear the cross through
the heat and burden of the day. We are too much influenced by
the world and too little controlled by the Spirit. We of the deeper
life persuasion are not immune to the temptations of ease and
we are in grave danger of becoming a generation of pleasure lovers.
Any who disagree with these conclusions are within their rights,
and I would be the last to deny them the privilege. But in the
name of a thousand struggling churches and disheartended pastors,
may I not plead for a little more loyalty to the local church during
this season of difficulty?
May God raise up a people who will consult their pleasures less
and the great need more.

Remember – Show up – Be Awesome – Bless Others
Bishop James I Feel God Brown
This is very appropriate for today. It is easy as followers of Christ to embrace a business plan or ministry model and neglect the Holy Spirit. We are called to follow Christ and make disciples and not churches. We all need to be listening to the Holy Spirit.
