A Place to Make a Kingdom’s Stance

Written on July 7, 2013

While the changes in society continue to propel away a people looking to God’s Word, one might think there would be an obvious exodus to being planted in the local church: representing the pillar of truth. But, at times this can prove disheartening, as each local church tries to navigate its way through the apparent urgency, yet also keeps itself and programs running and intact.

Where does one really GO? Where do we plant our feet?
“Let us go to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach…” (Heb 13:13)

The following six verses have come my way to form a framework in which a Kingdom stance has become clearer to me. Perhaps it adds a guided security. I would like to share them with you for your consideration:

Ps 84:10: “For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness”
1 Cor 9:12: “If others are partakers of this right over you…nevertheless we have not used this right, but endure all things lest we hinder the Gospel of Christ
1 Cor 9:15: “nor have I written these things that it should be done to me, for it would be better for me to die than anyone make void my boasting”
Heb 11:25: “Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin.”
Acts 5:29: “…we ought to obey God rather than man.”
Acts 26:22: “Witnessing…saying no other things than those which the Prophets and Moses said would come.”

Choosing to be merely a doorkeeper, not using rights, not fulfilling our need of expression, obeying God rather than man, speaking only that which conforms with His Word, and choosing the company with His destitute ones.

May we stand until that Day.

    機會係個天俾嘅 yes. BUT it is only those who are prepared that can see and catipalize the chance given. The people who always blames god/命/天 that there is no chance is absolutely wrong! If they haven’t prepared, work hard or think hard, how can they see the chance themselves, even if they see the opportunity is right in front of them, they wont have the skills, connection, knowledge or experience to take advantage of it.How sad!!!Bomb

    Thanks for your interest and your thoughts. We are in a day to believe in the great mercy of our Lord. I reread Titus 3:3-4. We the ones chosen to live at such a time. Thanks for your time, Tunepak5
