change

Ponder this:

houses.gif“God is changing the church, and that, in turn, will change the world.  Millions of Christians around the world are aware of an imminent reformation of global proportions.  They are saying in effect: ‘Church as we know it is preventing church as God wants it.’  Amazingly, many are hearing God say the same thing to them.”

–Wolfgang Simson (Houses That Change the World)

Simple observation, but very interesting.  Any thoughts?

  1. What about the bit in Matthew about only a few folks entering by the narrow gate?

  2. Phillip…explain.

  3. God doesn’t limit His voice to a select few…I think what Wolfgang says is true, that he is speaking similar things to different kinds of people…it’s only when we start to dialogue that we realize He’s saying the same things to many.

  4. What I find interesting about the quote are the critics in the establishment saying some of us are out there. I’ll admit, I am out there and plan to stay out there because that is where the people live.

    Travis, you’re right about realizing God is saying the same thing to many of us. I spent an hour last evening talking to a few folks about the condition of the North American Church. They are frustrated and hurt by the empty promises their pastors have spoken. People are looking for more when it comes to their spirituality. What will we do to? What has the Bride become?

  5. A spiritual mentor of mine once said, “as wounded and as broken as the bride is, she is still the bride.”
