Truth in Love – Losing Heart, Losing Hope

Wednesday, April 11, 2012 – Entry – Losing Heart, Losing Hope

 

One of the primary problems with the decay of the church’s influence on our culture, country, and society is the fact that many Believers who once burned red hot for Jesus have lost heart.  Through time, wounds, and disappointments these once powerful warriors for God have turned into broken people who have, or are, losing hope.  God never said that endurance with Him was a picnic.  Just the opposite is true.  Perseverance is no picnic and not for the weak and faint at heart.  Yet, there is hope because someone who has given themselves to a spirit of losing heart and hope can be renewed in their zeal for, and faith in, the Lord.  All they need do is ask the Lord to renew them, heal them, and bring them back to the place they once were in Him.  Then they stand up and begin to walk again, forgetting the time they spent in their pain, apathy, and doubt.  We must not let disappointment and discouragement take root in our lives; we can’t the Body of Christ is waiting for us, they need us and we need them.  If you once had such a passion for God that you believed you could make a difference for Him and a difference in your world for His glory then I urge you to once again find your way back to that passion.  Find your way back to the One who is passionate for you.

 

 

Spiritual/Political Disclaimer:

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended.  It will not be in any way politically correct.  It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love.  I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
