BLOG: The Church’s Word is: Presence by Kevin White
Survey About Pages on most church websites and you’ll see very little reference of the presence of God.
Throughout the bible God’s whole point is us in his presence and his presence in us. God’s word teaches us that every guidance and provision we will ever need can be found today in God’s presence. One significant take away of the global pandemic is that God is an ever present help in time of need.
The greatest opportunity today is for The Church to lead people into the presence of God, teaching them to encounter God, hear his voice, and rely on him for every guidance and provision they will ever need.
We all know the saying: Give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. The same is true about the presence of God: Tell a man about Jesus and you impact him one time. Teach a man to experience God and hear his voice day-by-day and you will impact him for a lifetime.
In 2021 it is important to be crystal clear about our purpose. Bring it down to one word. Only one. The Church’s word is: Presence.
Jesus said, “I am the way.” The way to what? Most people have totally missed God’s presence today and said Jesus is the way to heaven or the way to God (later in heaven). No, Jesus is the way to God’s presence today.
If Covid-19 and all the unrest in the world have taught us anything it is that we have to live moment-by-moment in the presence of God in order to survive.
In Exodus 33 Moses declared his value for God’s presence and established that the distinguishing factor for God’s people is God’s presence with them.
The Church is a great institution doing a great work! Bravo to every fellow pastor, church staff, leader, and volunteer. To God be the glory!
I’d love to help you know, align, and communicate your word! I would love the opportunity to help you encounter God, hear his voice, and rely solely on his presence for every guidance and provision you will ever need. Let me know how I can help you prosper.
