After I sent off the last blog on Tuesday, I actually wondered if I’d ever write another blog. I didn’t feel it was strong as it should be. I put it before God and he kindly sent me several people who emailed me and said that Tuesday’s blog hit home for them. Wow—I was encouraged!
A few hours after writing that blog, I bumped into an article that hit home for me.
If you remember, I mentioned the fact that Jesus threw the moneychangers out of the temple—and there was spiritual transformation that day! Now I realize that not all churches are money hungry businesses. However, this article made me think.
Well, pastor and author Perry Stone mentioned in the article that when Jesus threw the moneychangers out of the temple, the crates of doves naturally tipped over and doves were released—OUT OF THE BOX! I had to mention that here. Maybe the Holy Spirit wants to be released out of the boxes we’ve put Him into in our attempts to make church happen. What would happen if all the church money suddenly hit the floor and at the same time The Dove was released to fly at will?
Now there’s something to think about . . .
