Church – Hub or Destination

Usher: Hey Deak, you ever listen to Reggie McNeal?

Deacon: No, what’s he about

Usher: In this great speak, he talks about airports and churches

Deacon: And…

Usher: Well, he talks about how the church should really be a terminal, kind of like an airport – serving as a stop-over.  Instead the church has become the destination – kind of like an airport without any gates – Best analogy I ever heard on the condition of today’s church – plus he’s funny and looks like Carrol O’Connor:)

    (Psa 91:1 KJV) He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
    (Psa 91:2 KJV) I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
    (Psa 91:3 KJV) Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
    (Psa 91:4 KJV) He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
    (Psa 91:5 KJV) Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
    (Psa 91:6 KJV) Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
    (Psa 91:7 KJV) A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
    (Psa 91:8 KJV) Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
    (Psa 91:9 KJV) Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
    (Psa 91:10 KJV) There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
    (Psa 91:11 KJV) For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
    (Psa 91:12 KJV) They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
    (Psa 91:13 KJV) Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
    (Psa 91:14 KJV) Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
    (Psa 91:15 KJV) He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
    (Psa 91:16 KJV) With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.

    Do Not Be Surprised
    Do not be surprised when some church leaders do not accept you, for there has always been people who hold high positions in churches who speak evil of men and women of God.

    Many of God’s people over the centuries have come up against people like that. We read in 3 John v 9 & 10, of an elder called Diotrophes, who with foolish and malicious words spoke evil of the Apostles and who would not receive them or their teachings.

    He loved to have pre-eminence among the local church at that time, and if any did not obey him, he would have them thrown out of the church. Have things really changed today?
