Zechariah 4:6 (NKJV) “So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts.”

One of the biggest hindrances to the church today is man and man-centered methodologies that have quenched the Spirit of God. Do you agree?

The Church is a sovereign work of God, not the outcome of man’s ideas and strategies. God created the church.   We can rest assured that Jesus will fulfill His promise to build His church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it (Matt 16:18).

One of the most beautiful aspects of the global Church is its diversity. With a multitude of people, we see a variety of gospel loyal congregations, all united in their worship of Jesus. Even within local fellowships, we witness a richness of diversity. Yet, all true believers, regardless of the ‘church’ they belong to or the language they speak, are part of the same church family, with Jesus as its head.

We can never forget, especially those of us serving within a church, that the ministry belongs to God and not us. We must keep our fingerprints off the Bride of Christ, His church. We need to see that our local church is a work of His Spirit and that it remains a work of His Spirit in our service to Him. Because it’s too easy to jump in and take charge, we need to be careful not to fleshly drive the church with human wisdom, human ingenuity, and man-centered programs and processes (Galatians 3:3).

Don’t try to fit into any mold. Instead, follow His Spirit. God will lead you exactly where He wants you and empower you with exactly what you need when you get there!
