Men’s Prayer Focus
APRIL 16TH TO APRIL 22ND
I was headed in another direction for this week’s prayer focus, until Pastor Nelson spoke today. Praise God for the message he laid on Pastor Nelson’s heart. As to some additional thought on the message:
Last week I noted that Dr. David Jeremiah in his sermon challenged Christians to “Stand Up” for the word of God as did Daniel. He especially called out churches that are preaching a different gospel that does not align itself with the word of God”.
Pastor Nelson covered ground referring to strongholds we take as individuals positively or negatively. Just in case you haven’t notice the case is being made for a lot of negativity. Look at our world, this person doesn’t like that person, this group does not like that group, and countries don’t like each other, establishing “strongholds that are negative, creating destructive behavior in a fallen world.
In the midst of it all is the church, which is falling more and more off track, as we are in the end of times in which the “Lukewarm Church” is highly visible. Our “Stronghold” is weak. Our divisions are great. Pastor Nelson challenged us to put all that aside and ”Stand Up” and establish a “Stronghold for the Gospel. That means using our time, talents and treasures in a united effort to “Love, Obey and Proclaim Jesus Christ.”
He noted, as evidenced by much of the scripture in Corinthians that Paul, stood up for the Gospel Truth of Jesus Christ, though challenged mightily by the people of Corinth.
2nd Corinthians 10:3-5 Paul writes:
“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Pastor Nelson made it clear that we have to be obedient as a congregation and be unified establishing a “Stronghold” standing upon and delivering and sharing the Gospel truth, or we will become just “another church” fallen by the wayside.
And that guys, is what we will pray about this week. We do not want to “fall by the wayside”
Thanks for your prayers guys
