Missing the Main Point of our Faith

IMG_1484
There are so many things that vie for our attention that we lose sight of God. I’m not talking about the cares of this life, I’m speaking of the spiritual things. We talk too much about doctrines, church multiplication, God’s mission, giving, gifts of the Holy Spirit. We are too busy with the things of God, unknowingly we are losing Christ.

We talk about church multiplication, but never mention Jesus Christ. We preach holiness but failed to present Christ as our holiness. We preach righteousness but failed to mention Christ as our righteousness. We talk about blessing but failed to remind the Church that Christ Himself is our great blessing. We are passionately pursuing the things of God, without realizing we are putting other things on the throne (religious, spiritual things) and let Christ sit on the floor. And we wonder why we couldn’t see Christ move in the Church

This reminds me of the story of Zaccheus and the young rich guy who questioned Jesus Christ on how to be saved. He failed to see Jesus as Savior. He wanted salvation but never seek the Savior. He wanted an answer but not the teacher.

Zaccheus however, did everything just to gaze at Jesus Christ. He risk whatever he had to see Jesus Christ and the Lord rewarded him. Jesus Christ dined with him, conversed with him and revealed Himself to him.

We maybe rewarded with knowledge when we pursue the things of God, there is more than knowledge though, Christ, He wants to reveal Himself to us. May we not miss the main point of our faith which is Christ alone by pursuing the spiritual things.

Hebrew 11:6b “he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him”

One thought on “Missing the Main Point of our Faith

  1. I appreciated your Likes on our Blog Jhunnelle showing that you liked our messages and also what you shared in your message was good, which is that it is not about worldly wisdom or fleshy works that we should be seeking for but God’s wisdom and doing His works that He has prepared for us to do in advance and equips, Motivates and empowers us to do and they are all about God’s Love, Compassion and Mercy in Christ Jesus and as we walk as Jesus does we will do them because it is Him in us that empowers us to.

    When we are Born again we will show we are and this is what we are to aim for and as Jesus tells us we seek , ask and knock so we can be complete in Him.

    Hebrews 11: 6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he/she that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

    James 2:18 Even so faith if it hath not works is dead being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne
