Get Real Church

I have met two people at a church that are always fine. Everything is always good. Everything is always fine. I used to be annoyed by this. I suppose I was either envious, or perhaps more self conscious of the challenges in my life. Maybe I was both. Now I am not envious, nor am I more self conscious of my own life. One of these people is the pastor of a church, and the other attends the same church. Now I understand what I missed all along. My opportunity to pray. But I must not limit my prayers to this one church, nor to these two individuals. I am actually concerned for the Body of Christ as a whole, for His church.

The truth is that not everything is fine. None of us humans are immune from trials and tribulations, and I am concerned for those who come across as immune for two reasons. First, I am concerned they may not reaching out for the love and support they may need. And I am concerned because I believe that now more than ever America needs a real church.

A real Body of Christ. I believe we need to get real. I am not inspired by those who are fine all the time. I am inspired by those who are real – the ones who go through life’s challenges with the Lord and His Word and come out the other end. So I will not limit my prayers to two random people. I will extend my prayers to the Body of Christ, me included. Let’s get real.

Jas 5:16  “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
