I want to challenge you this morning with a word I heard this weekend. It will be short and right to the point. But this is hard truth. Paul charged the Church at Colosse with three things! Let’s read Colossians 1:28-28, “We proclaim Him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present every one perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.”
The Lord is calling His Church to three task. Here it is in a nutshell. We are to proclaim the Lord Jesus, teach the scriptures, and set our hearts to reach the world. We are called to make the name of Jesus famous all over the world! Church it is time to stand up, speak up, and it’s time to tell the world about the Savior who loves them. His name is King Jesus!
What God has called us to do will not be easy. But it will never be accomplished in our own strength and in our own wisdom. We would fall flat on our faces. We can no longer sit on the fence and have one foot in the world and one foot in the church. He has called us to holiness and godliness. The greater the purity the greater the power! God is calling us to partner with Him and to lean on Him, trust Him, and believe Him for miracles!
Rise up Church! Get back to what God has called us to do! Let’s stop going through the motions of doing church and checking a box. I say all this in love and with great passion. Our world needs to hear the good news of Jesus Christ, but they will not listen, if they don’t see a difference in us. Love you all and God bless.
