“Father, I see that you are drawing a line in the sand and I want to be standing by your side, holding your hand. So, let your kingdom come; let it live in me. This is my prayer. This is my plea.”
These are words from the opening verse of a song made popular by Phillips, Craig, and Dean a fews years ago called “Let the Worshippers Arise.” We do it at our church in OKC.
Those words are so relevant to where I believe we are as the Body of Christ. I believe there is a line being drawn and those who call themselves Christians are being forced to make a choice. The choice is very simple and very clear. It is the choice between continuing to live in mediocrity or really becoming the Church of God that we are intended to be.
The Apostle, Paul says in 2 Timothy 4:3-5: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”
The chorus to the song I referenced at the beginning of this post says “Let the worshippers arise! Let the sons and the daughters sing! I’m surrendering my all. I’m surrendered to the King!”
It’s time we stand and be the church!
Are you in or out?
It really is that clear of a choice.
