Church On Earth

The plan of God is thorough and detailed. He left His body (the Church) on earth for a specific purpose that is clearly stated throughout His instructions.Ye are the salt of the earth: Expectedly, as salt preserves, sweetens and performs the role of cleaning, Jesus Christ left each of us to perform these roles on the earth. We are to preserve the sanctity of all godly institutions, refusing every form of redefinition that are set to achieve social-political correctness! The Church was left behind to bring joy, gladness and desirable atmosphere to our world replicating Philips’s effect of great joy in the City! (Acts 8:8). We cannot afford to lose our savior, and there is no better time for the Church to occupy her role than now.Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid: Did you see Jesus, climbing the available platform that was close-by and screaming on top of His voice, knowing the moral depravity that will come upon the earth, Ye are the light of the world! Beloved you are here to show direction to our world, to guide and to bring life into our environment just as light does. Light dispel darkness, light eliminate groping, and light brings life. Your light cannot and should not be hidden: you have been set on a hill! “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Mt.5:16).The Church must showcase Christ and His ability to save our world from its present gross darkness.Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature (Mk.16:15). The propagation of the gospel of the kingdom of God has been committed to the Church on earth. Woe is me (1Cor. 9:16) says Apostle Paul, if I fail to preach the gospel. As a child of God and a bonafide member of the Church, your life must preach the gospel, your mouth must declare the gospel of the cross, and your total life must declare it. Child of God, preach the gospel, for it is the power of God unto salvation – that is why you are here!

The Church is empowered to put the devil and his cohort in check and keeping them at bay (Eph.3:10). For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Eph. 6:12).

Oh that Today you will hear his voice as a genuine member of the Church of God and rise up to occupy the position that the master has called us into and bring joy to him that sits on the throne.
