Tragedy in the Church ·

Text

Rev 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Outline

1. The Tragedy of the Unbent Knee

Prayer does not always mean kneeling is part of the process. God expects us to always pray where ever you are, what ever you might be doing.

Luke 18:1  And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

2. The tragedy of the Unread Word

John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

3. The Tragedy of the Unpaid Tithe

Mal 3:8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
Mal 3:9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
Mal 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

The Problem is not always what you are doing wrong, but what has been left undone. We should definitely pay heed to the "thou shalt not's", but do not miss the "thou shalt's".
