In today’s church, there are (spiritual) orphans. There should not be any orphans in His Family. We must do something about it.
Christ loved the Church. He laid down His life for her. Are we willing to lay down our lives for the Church?
Christ is the Head of the Church Family. If we are His sons and daughters, we will build our house out of love and not out of duty. If we are His sons and daughters, we will own our Father’s vision and not serve only the parts that we like. If we are His sons and daughters, we will speak the language of family i.e. we, us and our, not I, me and my. If we are His sons and daughters, we will be family-oriented and not issue-centred. If we are His sons and daughters, we will stay put under fire and not look for greener pasture.
Our faith in God the Father gets us started and faithfulness will see us through. We are His sons and daughters. We have ownership in His house. We take initiatives not just instructions. As His sons and daughters, we build the vision of our Father God and not our own.
Dear Father God,
Give us a clear vision. We want to focus on Your vision, not ours. Guide us and we will do Your will - Your way. Teach us. We are willing to learn. Convict us and we will change. Discipline us and we will be transformed. Give us a teachable spirit. We want to show the world that we have a good good Father. We want to embrace spiritual orphans who are in desperate need of spiritual fathers and mothers. Use us Father God. We will do Your will. Speak Father God. Your sons and daughters are listening. You know all of us by name. Call and we will answer. Dear Father God, we are ready to go where You want us to go, do what You want us to do, and be what You want us to be. Hallelujah!
