Another Cog In The Wheel?

I am a Cog in the wheel, a part of Christ’s body, no doubt God wants to use me but sometimes I feel like “Christianity”, religions & church gatherings become so robotic & mechanical. 

I have to continually ask God to help change my perspective so that I can turn the world upside down. 

The real party & celebration should be in the Church buildings not the night clubs.

If you are part of an organization or corporation perhaps you also need God to put things into His perspective, which often times is completely different from ours

Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.                1 Timothy 1:19 NLT 

But among you it will be different. Those who are the greatest among you should take the lowest rank, and the leader should be like a servant. Luke 22:26 NLT

We can say with confidence and a clear conscience that we have lived with a God-given holiness and sincerity in all our dealings. We have depended on God’s grace, not on our own human wisdom. That is how we have conducted ourselves before the world, and especially toward you.     2 Corinthians 1:12 NLT

But the Jews were jealous, and taking some wicked men of the rabble, they formed a mob, set the city in an uproar, and attacked the house of Jason, seeking to bring them out to the crowd. And when they could not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also, and Jason has received them, and they are all acting against the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.” Acts 17:5‭-‬7 ESV

If you stand firm on God’s Word it may mean trouble for you & what you once thought was paradise. Just because a leader says they have been given authority by God doesn’t mean his or her word is the final say. Measure everything against God’s word as a whole, not in part. May our steps be in step with Christ. 

As a member of His body He is the head, not me, not mankind.

In Christ, beetle
