>Don’t Be This Kind of Christian…..

Posted: July 2, 2009 in Christian Church, Maturity, Personal Growth

>Something I hear often from people that have left a church they’ve attended or from those considering leaving their church is “we just feel we’re not being fed.” I’m sorry “What?”. What do you mean you are “not being fed”? It’s almost always people that have had a relationship with God for a long time. A new believer NEVER says, “I’m just not being fed.”

What they mean is that they don’t feel like they are being challenged or nurtured spiritually at a church. Can the local church be failing at this sometimes? Answer: Yes. But my first question when talking to someone who makes this statement is: “What are you doing to feed yourself”? Daily reading of your Bible? Regular intimate prayer time? Are you proactive in your Christian educational growth by attending classes and reading?Are you serving the Lord by serving in your local church or are you just “consuming”?

When we attend church services with the desire to be entertained we’re committing idolatry.

Realize that a pastor speaking on a Sunday is speaking to a wide spectrum of people from those just initially seeking God to those who have known Him for decades. As we grow in our maturity in our walk with God our role should be changing from just consuming at church to serving and leading.

Let’s Grow Together,
