Lord, have mercy

Do we value public perception and reputation of our churches? Do we value that more than we value purity and integrity of heart? Are we more impressed with our programs than we are desperate for the power of God?

Do we esteem communication skills more highly than we esteem faithfulness to the Scripture and proclaiming whatever truth needs to be said to the people of our day? Do we esteem natural talent and leadership gifts more than the anointing of the Spirit?

Charles Spurgeon said, “The world is always at peace with a lukewarm church, and such a church is always pleased with itself.”

Lord, have mercy on me, on my church, on Your Church!
