Don’t Just Go to Church | Go Be the Church
Matthew 28:18-20, NKJV
God’s Original Intent and Purpose for your Life, Church, and Family is that wherever you go, be a witness for Jesus. (Acts 1:8, NKJV)
He will then give you a power that you need, want, and love. (Acts 2:1-8, NKJV; Acts 1:8, NKJV) “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.” (Genesis 1:28, NKJV)
When we forget God’s Original Intent and Purpose, it will bring Confusion and Destruction.
The Old Testament church forgot God’s original intent and, therefore, was scattered. (Genesis 11:1-9, NKJV; Acts 8:1, NKJV) God told them “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.” God did not tell them to build for themselves a city to heaven.
The devil gets you to focus on yourselves which leads to confusion and destruction. God wants you to focus on His purpose and plan for your lives and that will lead you to power, passion, praise, peace, priorities, and purpose. God wants us to GO, the devil wants us to simply gather.
We are to come to gather at the little “c” church, then GO and be the big “C” Church wherever we go. What are you going to do with what God has given you? (Genesis 11:5-6, NKJV) When you’re not using, what God has given you for His purpose, it will lead to destruction. (Genesis 11:6-7, NLT2)
Confusion comes from wrong priorities in your life. Confusion and destruction will come if we only gather and don’t go. (Genesis 11:8-9, NKJV; 1 Corinthians 14:32-33, NKJV)
Go into the World.
Go from personal purpose to a power Kingdom purpose.
Go from a building to the people.
Go from limited power to unlimited power.
Go from having to go through a priest or pastor to a Person (Jesus) through the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 2:14, NKJV)
Go from a physical temple to a personal temple. (1 Corinthians 6:18-19, NKJV)
