How many of you were told about church and it’s horror stories? How many of you had a life altering issue and it made you question God? How many of you only attended church for parents or grandmother? How many of you still attend church? It comes in different forms but what you will see is that it doesn’t matter whether you are currently attending church, heard it through the grapevine, through your own experience, or held against your will, you’re being taught something.
Who is your first? Noo not like that. Who is your first point of contact? Our first inclination is to call someone we know. Someone we know usually answers the phone. Someone who is reliable. We have to learn to make God the FIRST person we call on. We have to make God our FIRST priority. Y'all, we should wake up, speak, think, eat, breathe, walk, talk, act, like our Heavenly Father. Any and every situation we’re in a lot of times, is our own doing. We thought we were able to take care of it but it quickly fell apart. There was no foundation. No support.
Even when things look /sound crazy, do it! You need to stop looking around for someone else when God has called you. He’s waiting to bless you out of obedience. He’s waiting to share with you the plans He has for your life and the lives of others, how you’re going to be blessed to be a blessing.
Ever thought the reason why people depicted Jesus as either white or black was to simply... This message shines light on a dark place we like to hide. It's all too familiar but one thing among others, we don't necessarily talk about because it would interrupt the status quo. Today, I want to challenge that status quo and your minds and help you truly read and understand the Bible as you should and not the way of listening to others but listening to God himself, the TRUE author of His own story.
