We Need To Be Reformed

I have decided to present to you, on this Reformation morning, what my vision is, what I think needs to be done, where I believe the Church of God must go in order to accomplish the Great Commandments and the Great Commission. My goal has never been to do the newest program or to become the best-liked pastor. I have not aspired to personal recognition in the association, nor to satisfy every whim or please everyone. My goal has always been that we, both you and I, would become reformed in Christ. What can we do to be reformed this morning? In 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Paul gives us 6 things we need to do in order for our church to experience true reform, true revival.

Don't Look a Gift Morse in the Mouth

Most churches and many pastor’s for that matter believe that the pastor is the one responsible for building the church. He is the chief servant, missionary, trustee, visitor, etc. This being the case, most pastors resort to the ‘whatever works’ mentality. If my paycheck depends on people coming in and the appearance of numerical growth then I will do whatever it takes. I have been asked to kiss a pig, cut my hair off, and preach from the roof of the building. I know of churches that give away cars, offer week-long vacations, cash prizes, and various other enticements in order to ‘build’ the numbers in the church. That is not what we see here.
