where's the power...

Alot of bark, no bite.

A little less talk, alot more action.

Faith without works is dead, being alone.

Show me the money!

Well done is better than well said.

Big talkers, Spin-doctors.

Come strong or don't come at all.

They talk the talk, but don't walk the walk.

The honor me with their lips but their hearts are far from me.

The kingdom of God is not a matter of talk, but of power.

Having a form of godliness but deny it's power, from such turn away.

Smoke and mirrors.

They speak of things they do not know.

White washed tombs.

Where is the change...where is the transformation...where is the newness of life...where is the substance behind the speech...where is the growth...where is the healing...where is the freedom...where is the joy...where is truth in the inner parts?  

There is so much white noise...such a chaotic flurry of frenetic activity in the church...such a dearth of depth...such a glut of god-gossip.  Where is the choice among the cheap?  God come down and grant us the power to authenticate and activate.  Give us the passion to change.  Give us an unction from on high, quicken our hearts, infuse us with a vigorous faith that humbly surrenders to your will.

The world has for too long witnessed a church of hot air and cold hearts.  We need a resurrection, a church born again to the truth of God's life-altering power.  We need truth in the inner parts...

it's time.

I am teaching the book of James in Young Married class right now - will use this (whether you give permission or not!!!) on Sunday AM. Well posted...thought provoking...I would say Amen, but don't want to be hypocritical - maybe I am part of the problem.
