What is faith? It is a radical trust and loyalty to God. It can't be know if it is not revealed to you. Faith can't come from self or from the world. It can only come from God, because He made it known. Without faith we can't imagine the things we have faith for. Faith is a response from God revealing Himself to us. It is a divine gift of grace and our response to it.
The church has the responsibility to go to the deacons with a need. The deacons have the responsibility to meet the needs of the church. The pastor/minister has the responsibility to pray and to minister the Word of God to the church. If God's model for these matters is followed, the church will receive great blessings.
Where it comes to the office of deacon, we need an awakening back to scripture. Do you know the requirements and blessings of a deacon? Do you realize what will happen when the congregation and the deacons WORK TOGETHER in fellowship? When we follow the God's model for His church? Look at what Acts 6:7 tells us. A true revival WILL happen!
Do you remember the first time you heard and believed the Gospel of Jesus Christ? At that time you were sealed by the Spirit, who guarantees our inheritance of God's promises. We may go through highs and lows, trials and tribulations, we even may back slide, but we will NEVER lose our salvation!
Today there is a great distance between preaching and preaching the Word of Truth. Preaching the Word of Truth should be the only preaching done in God's House. All other preaching HAS to be evicted, as it does not serve God. This other preaching will pull us away from His glory and His will for our lives.
