...enlarge and build up the body of Christ.

A word for a season...
(Words from various people in our church body at VCC)
A word following the theme of the worship on Sunday, August 1, 2021.
Is the Holy Spirit speaking to you about this?
"I want to know You!" "I want more of You." Themes from some songs and spoken words today. All those statements require us to make a move toward Him. Did you know that? He isn’t going to force Himself on us. He will never violate our free will. Those phrases indicate we must intentionally draw near to Him. Without action, they don’t reflect intentionality. They are hopeful words but our savior isn’t going to make it happen. It requires our involvement. It takes a growing relationship with the Savior. We cannot wish it will happen. If God has anointed us with a gift but we refuse to grow in that anointing, it will wither and die. Again, it requires action! Nicole’s word about the Seahorse and going deeper comes with a requirement. We must grow closer to Him. He will not take us deeper or come closer to us without any effort on our part. Again, this requires action from us. We cannot live like always and expect God to do all the work. That isn’t even scriptural. This is the influence of the Western church culture. If you want to know Him and get closer to our Lord, then it’s time for action. Time to move, to get serious about our commitment to Jesus Christ.
