Mike Yaconelli once said,
“The impotence of today’s church, the weakness of Christ’s followers, and the irrelevance of most parachurch organizations is directly related to the lack of being in the presence of an awesome, holy God, who continually demands allegiance only to Him – not to our organizations, to our church or our theology.”
This past weekend I referenced our loyalty to country in relation to our dependence upon God. I believe many Americans place their patriotism too high in relation to their spiritual walk with Jesus Christ. Be careful when reading my thoughts that you don’t take them out of context. I support and love my nation, but I am very careful not to substitute or equate patriotism with God’s Kingdom. If (or when) America fails/falls as a nation, God is still in control.
Taking Mr Yaconelli’s quote and these I have made, what are your thoughts on it?
