Inbred Christianity

24 Mar

Inbred Christianity…

Royal families of Europe only associated with and married each other. This led them to becoming inbred. It’s not healthy to intermarry. Families become weaker and vulnerable to diseases.

Likewise, a congregation can become inbred. What is meant by this? It happens when it has no relation any more to the outside world. It has its own Christian churchy culture.

In the same way, if you get so into Christian culture, you can lose the Lord and actually become weaker. You will actually segregate yourself from the very world that needs your influence the most.

If you’re not stepping out, not taking new ground for the Lord, advancing the Gospel or sharing with unbelievers, you are at risk of becoming inbred. You can forget where you came from and what the whole point was.

It’s the fallow ground that bears the most fruit. The power of the Gospel is to go forth. Get out of your comfort zone and begin transforming the areas that haven’t been touched yet. Let’s face it–becoming inbred isn’t good for the royal children of Europe and it’s certainly not good for the royal children of God.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. Romans 1:16

Step out in God today. Ask Him to put people in your path that need to hear about salvation and the love of Jesus. Ask Him for the right words to say. He will help you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
