Is the Church Weary?

As Christian believers, we stand together in the evangelical faith—the historical faith of our fathers. Yet, we must confess that many congregations seem bogged down with moral boredom and life-weariness. The Church is tired, discouraged, and unastonished; Christ seems to belong to yesterday. The prophetic teachers have projected everything into the dim future where it is beyond our reach-unavailable! They have dispensationalized us into a state of spiritual poverty—and they have left us there! But regardless of such teachers, the course of spiritual victory is clear; let us trust what the Word of God continues to say to us! The Scriptures are open and plain. Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord. He is our great High Priest, alive and ministering for us today. His person, His power and His grace are the same; without change, yesterday, today and forever!

Verse

In this, the children of God are manifest. 1 John 3:10

Thought

The church is tired, discouraged and unastonished—Christ seems to belong to yesterday.

Prayer

Lord, let me not grow weary doing Your work.
