1. What are my motives?
Missionary dating is something many of us have heard of, but how many of us have actually taken part in it? You’d be surprised to know how many Christians date someone with opposing religious views, all in hopes of converting them in the near future.
God has the power to use anyone, anywhere, any time. No matter what your circumstances may be, the ability to be used by God is unwavering.
1. It’s getting too big.
When any church is faithful in their strive to fulfill “The Great Commission,” you can’t help but expect lives to be changed, and church growth to inevitably take place. To leave a church based off growth, is to simply deny an opportunity to praise God’s hand upon it. This isn’t to say that all church growth is ordained by the hand of God, but I would hinder anyone from making a decision to leave one based off attendance.
It seems that today’s Christians are more known by what they are against than for. And although there are plenty of things God has called us to turn our backs to, I strongly believe our holy anthem should be chorused by what we are for.
