Tolerance isn’t Love

Heart transformation is what is most needed by all and is what I pray most for as I move into disability ministry; for hearts to be changed by the power of the Holy Spirit. It can’t happen any other way. Only then can ears hear, feet move into action and hearts to be full of genuine compassion. Then will the church truly incorporate ALL people it ought to. No matter how uncomfortable or unorthodox it may appear. It takes courage and prayer.

Only then will the Spirit fall and allow people see Jesus in us.

But maybe that is the very thing we are afraid of. After all, revivals, extended worship times and tongue speaking are inconvenient, sometimes loud and at times untidy. Surely not what the Church is meant to look like…or is it?<
Time to read the book of Acts.
