DAVID GRAY: "..High-Time To Move..."



...High-Time To Move...

“…You Know I’ve Been “in the church” a very long time…

…And we say that an awful lot in reference to “a building where we fellowship”…

…But you Know What? I Believe we gave that place that we call “church” Our Power…

…Because…That building that we call “church” isn’t anything but an empty building…Until…

…The People Arrive…Because The Church Is A People…Living & Active…not an inanimate building…

…And Don’t Get me wrong…There Are A Lot Of Good Things That Happen When we Fellowship…
…Because we Are Gathering With Like Minded Followers Who Believe In Jesus Christ…
…But…As The Body Of Jesus Christ…What Is Our Corporate Calling? We Are Called To Go Forth…
…We Are Called To Go Out Into The HighWays & ByWays Of the lost world & Disciple them Aren’t we?

…If we Aren’t Learning From Our Pastor That he Discipling & Teaching us To Do ‘what he is doing’…
…In The Life [Jesus] Circles of our own co-workers…friends…family & neighbors…Then…
…We have missed The Same Boat That Jesus Is On…A lot of ‘pastors’ aren’t even on This Boat…
…Many ‘pastors’ are too busy building their ‘own kingdom of followers’ behind closed doors…

…I’ve Learned That there really isn’t that much power if It doesn’t Come Out from behind ‘there’…
…Honestly over the years I have seen more activity behind the walls then Out In The CommUnity…
…And I Know This Because…I used to be a big part of the issue…It’s what ‘church taught me’…
…And I Believe that is one of the main reasons for the record number of people leaving ‘the church’…

…Because how do you have a REALationship with ‘a building’? A bunch of activity just doesn’t do…
…And in the ‘old days’ we used to ‘invite people to church’…Which is a pretty good premise…But…
…What Really Happened most of the time was that we didn’t Invite them Into Our Life [Jesus]…
…As People…We Need & Require REALationship…Leading others to a inanimate place just won’t do…

…That Is The Whole Issue With The Church’s Identity Being Given Away to ‘a builing’…
…Because then we ‘gotta go somewhere’ to Experience God’s House or God’s Power…
…And That Is Not Even Close To The Truth [Jesus]…All Of That Goodness Is Right InSide each of us…
…We Carry…Deliver & Release His Power & Presence EveryWhere That we Go…Because…

…He Is With us…And The Church Is A People That Lives & Moves In His Being EveryWhere we Go…
…We Have To Remember That Our Leader Came To Save sinners easily found ‘out in the world’…
…It Isn’t ‘someone else’ that The Word [Jesus] Is Calling & Commanding To Go Forth & Make Disciples…
…It’s you! It’s us! Most of us are not Called to be pastors of ‘these buildings that we call church’…

…Most of us are Called To Disciple…Minister…Pastor…Preach & Teach In Our Life [Jesus] Circles…
…There are fatherless children…the needy…the poor…prisoners…the sick & widows all around us…
…He Fully Expects us To Engage…Impact & Get Intimate With The CommUnity He Has us In…
…That…Is What The Church Looks Like…not what it may look like to us…

…But What It Looks Like To Our Father & Our God…
…We’ve been ‘inanimate’ long enough…

…It’s High-Time To Move…”
