Yesterday I arrived in London once again. I have come to love this great melting pot of city. So many nationalities and cultures live and work here. This time I am here by invitation to speak at a Christian conference organized by a group of different churches with different ethnic backgrounds. Last night we had the opening service and I spoke about the Holy Spirit and His personality. The Lord blessed us with His own presence, revelation and lots of joy.
It seems to me it pleases the Lord when people from different ethnic backgrounds come together to worship the one and only Savior Jesus Christ. In the book of revelation we see people from all tribes, nations and tongues standing before the throne of God worshipping together. Matter a fact in a city like London lives lots of unreached people, many from nations where the gospel is deficit, churches practically nonexistent not talking about evangelism to reach them with the Good News of Christ.
They are no within reach to hear about Jesus and we have to take the challenge to proclaim Christ to them. Secularism is not the answer, Jesus is. New church planting initiatives are needed all over Europe, new barns for a new harvest in a new time. And then new workers are needed, equipped for such a time as this. Able to use the cultural language of our day to communicate the Good News to these big city people.
The church cannot and should not be a place for politics nor exclusive interest groups but it’s for all Gods people. Focus is Jesus and His glory. Salvation in no other name and worship of none other than the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Church must be a place of worship, fellowship, joy and freedom. It is supposed to be a fountain of Salvation, where we meet Jesus, having a great time together! All in honesty and without hidden agendas, everyone included no one excluded. Not a place for perfect people but non-perfect seeking to be Christ like in their unique, god-given personalities. The bible tells us to not be conformed to this world but we are also not to be conformed to each other but to be transformed into the image of Christ.
Now I have to run, the service begins and I am not even in the service!!! God bless!
