An Open Door


This is a picture,of a church my husband,and his family,went to when he was a teenager. It speaks a sad song to my heart..The Gospel Center,The Good News Center, the place where those in need of hope,could find it…As you can see by this recent picture,it is no longer open,tho the door stands ajar…I wonder,if the lost in the world,see us {those who say,we have the Gospel} in this same condition…Still taking up space in this crowded earth, but empty,no longer alive,no longer holding out hope…So occupied with debating,over endless ,dots and commas,in the Precious Word,that we’ve forgotten the essence of that word…To give LIFE to those who need it..I have to say,I still need it ,life that is..The life that was {and is} found in the simple words of Jesus..It seems the Camp of the Lord,is so divided, we have those who will stand for nothing, and those who debate over any thing and every thing…Matt.22: 36-40,{Amp.} Teacher,which kind of commandment is great and important[the principal kind] in the Law?,37 And He replied to him,You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.{intellect} 38 This is the great [most important,principal]and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as{you do} yourself.40 These two commandments sum up and upon them depend all the law and the Prophets…Don’t get me wrong,I believe we should earnestly contend for the faith,as the word instructs,but for the purpose of gaining back those misled, to the One fold..So that we can ALL be about our Fathers work,reaching those who have not yet heard the Good News…Maybe we need a fresh dose of that Good News..Isaiah 58:4[Amp} The facts are that you fast only for strife and debate and to smite with the fist of wickedness.Fasting as you do today will not cause your voice to be heard on high…Sounds like this attitude of heart, causes our prayers to go unheard..Not good news…Oh Lord bring us back to the First Love,,St.Luke 5:31 {AMP.} And Jesus replied to them,It is not those who are healthy who need a physician,but those who are sick..Meaning the lost, but I ask,”Is there a Docter in the house”?   2 Cor. 11:3{k.j.v.} But I fear,lest by any means,as the serpent beguiled Eve,through his subtlety,so your minds should be corrupted from the SIMPLICITY that is in Christ..Where is that Docter?
