The Insulated Kingdom

17 May

The Insulated Kingdom…

As a child going outside in the wintertime, my mother would dress me up in a sweater, scarf, snowsuit, and wrapped inside layers of insulation. It was great, but there was one problem. I was so insulated, that even though I was outside, I was still inside, hermetically sealed.

So as believers, we tend to have an insulation problem. We insulate ourselves against the outside world. But the Great Commission is outside, beyond the church building. The people outside are the ones who need salvation.

You have to go out for the kingdom to grow. Most new people are brought into a congregation by new members, not by the old members. The old tend to get insulated, inside Christian relationships.

They don’t touch the outside anymore, so comfortable in church culture. We need to get out. That can’t happen by only connecting with other believers. It happens when you take away the insulation.

Out is where the lost are, where the kingdom grows, where the Lord commanded us to go. It’s where you need to go if you’re going to touch this world. Get uninsulated and get out.

And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 1 John 3:23

Today ask the Lord for someone to share the love of Yeshua with, pray with or invite to your congregation – and spread the word!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
