Satan is tempting us to not need the presence of God in our churches.
Daniel Kolenda shares an eye-opening message and a warning for us and our church leaders. Satan is deceiving us that we don’t need the Holy Spirit in our churches to continue to grow. He is tempting us to focus on our presentation and not needing the presence of God.
“When your presentation is so good and when you look so good, there is a temptation that you can actually make it on that alone for a long time. You don’t really need the presence of God, in fact sometimes, the Holy Spirit becomes a liability in such a situation,” Daniel warned.
Presence of God
When the Holy Spirit comes into our midst, things might get a little bit messy. His presence may mess up our agenda, but it is what we need the most! We need the Holy Spirit more than the lights, the music, the presentations, or our calculated programs. Without Him, everything that we do is empty.
“The Holy Spirit when He comes, things get a little bit messy and things get a little bit loud,” he explained. “And sometimes we go over our time limits and sometimes things happen that generate controversy.”
God is limitless
God is never boxed by any limitation. If you want to follow Him, be willing to let God mess up your plans and your agendas. Following means that you also have to stay outside the box and go beyond your limitations.
“My friend I have news for you, He was never in your stupid box. If you’ve got a box, the only person inside it is you and maybe your church but He ain’t in there. He’s on the outside. And if you want to be with Him, you’re going to have to get on the outside and you’re going to be have to be willing to look foolish sometimes. You’re going to have to be willing to lay down your agenda sometimes. You’re going to have to be willing to let Him have His way.”
