whoever humbles himself as this little child�
A church's programs and everything they do shouldn't be for comfort, but for the purpose of bringing people to Jesus Christ. That's why the Church exists. Humble yourself, then, and put others first so that they can be led to Christ!
Matt.18:1-4: At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven? Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.�
The Bible clearly says the role of women in church. They are not allowed to have leadership positions. One achen recently told so that means that women must sit at home and cook and clean and become like door-mats? no. that is not what the Bible says . Women can do anything. Including become the president of a country. But in the presence of God, women cannot lead. It is not my law. it is God's law. The Bible also clearly says that husbands must love and cherish their wife. God's only condition is they cannot take a leadership position in church. The modern American churchs still follow the Biblical traditions. They do not allow women in lead positions in church.
A christian should obey the Commander-in-Chief's call to preach the Good News of Christ to the ends of the earth!
Acts1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.�
Jerusalem is his home town, Judea is his homeland, Samaria is his neighbor, and the ends of the earth is the Roman Empire. Rome was the only known world at the time.
The Christian life isn't a world of comfort and ease it's not a cruise ship. Instead, it's a battleship a lifelong fight against the enemy to win souls for the Kingdom of God. So if you're searching for comfort in life, change your focus to serving the One who is Life!
INSTEAD OF SEEKING COMFORTS IN LIFE, GIVE YOURSELF DAILY IN SERVICE FOR THE ONE WHO IS LIFE
Learning to humble myself,
