Don’t Lose Sight

By   •   January 25   •   Topics: ,


We might as well face it, strife has even infiltrated our church life. It is true enough that the Church is now the Church militant. But, as such, its warfare ought to be that of dedication to revealed truth and divine holiness, and not intramural bickering and carnal disputes. We read in the second chapter of Luke that Joseph and Mary lost Jesus one day. Where did they lose Him? They lost Him in the most unlikely place in all the world-the Temple. I have seen many people lose Jesus right in the church. I have seen them lose Him in a dispute about who was to be choir director, who was to play the organ, who was to be an elder, or who was to be the minister. Yes, because we are human, though Christian, it is easy to lose sight of Jesus right in the temple!

Read Billy Graham’s answer on what to say to someone who had a bad church experience.

Prayer for the day

Don't let me lose sight of You, Lord, in the
complex logistics of everyday life.

  2. Gerry says:

    We should remember that all churches everywhere are made up of a group of sinners. However if sincere , we are also trying to do our best to serve God and improve our sinful ways. When bickering begins within the church quickly turn to prayer and ask God for guidance and intervention.
