To believe that Jesus rose and is now present everywhere yet neglect to daily interact with Him is to miss the point of Christianity. For Christians to wake-up is to become gloriously aware that we carry Christ’s presence and to begin to let Him freely work in and through us today!
Making churches better and more efficient institutions won’t advance Christianity. Surrendering control to the living Jesus will! You won’t be able to follow the risen Jesus unless you keep Him continually in the forefront of your daily life.
Many Christians let Jesus hang around in the background of their life, but they don’t want Him to be in the forefront. Always keep the living Jesus in the forefront of your mind and the center of your heart!
Some thoughts that you shove into the background of your mind are coming directly from God. Notice them. The faint voice in the background of your mind trying to gently disrupt your plans is often Jesus prompting you to a better life. When a Christian courageously invites Jesus to step out of the background and instead to become Lord and Master everything changes!
Beware! Many churches now feature Christless sermons — secular-based motivational speeches disguised as religion.
It's hard to hear the sound Of Jesus in the background. Why not let Him come around To the center of your attention And set your life on His solid ground? Jesus in the background, Churches operating like He's nowhere around. That's the hollow sound Of empty religion.
