The Church is God’s Security system by Pastor Chris

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL TODAY!

THEME: THE CHURCH IS GOD’S SECURITY SYSTEM

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (1 Timothy 4:1).

In some parts of the world today, there is a satanic plan to after the children. Some are peddling the idea that children do not have to listen to their parents, because they (the children) belong to the state. But beyond the children, the strategy is actually an outward expression of a spiritual attack that is also taking place. There is a satanic move to give people an impression that churches are not important. So, they say “You do not have to be a member of a church; just serve God generally and you will be fine.” They spread the idea that you can just be raised through the internet, listening to different preachers online.

What they are trying to do is an attempt to pull those Christians out of the security system that God created for families, thereby exposing them to satanic attacks. Therefore, be smart. The Bible says an heir, as long as he’s a child, he is a child, he is placed under tutors and governors until a time set by the Father (Galatians 4:1-2). Also, he tells us to not forsake the assembly of the local church as some do in bad behaviour (Hebrews 10:25).

When someone says, “I go to many churches, I do not have any particular one”, it is proof that he or she has been deceived by the modus operandi of Satan. The structures that God has set in His Word are important; they must be used for the purposes for which the Lord set them. You not only grow in the church, but you also learn and participate in ministry to others.

In the church the pastoral ministry nurtures the brethren, trains them in the prayer life, faith, an to live the Christian life victoriously daily as we await the imminent return of Christ. So, when you win souls, salvation is only thee beginning; guide them to church. It is for their security, spiritual growth, edification and ministry.

PRAYER
Dear Lord, thank you for the opportunity to be a member of the body of Christ and participate actively in a local assembly. I pray for new converts around the world alongside those who may have been misled; that they’d understand the Church as your security system for them, a place of refuge, comfort and refreshing And as they come in, they’ll grow spiritually and be effective in the work and ministry of reconciliation, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY
Hebrews 10:25 (KJV) “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”

Luke 4:16 (KJV) “And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up; and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.”

1 Timothy 3:15 (KJV) “But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.”
