This Word asks us one question that opens the door to the new day: Are our actions and methods in alignment with our beliefs? After being in the ministry for some time, Paul had a revelation that he needed to reevaluate and submit what he was doing, “for fear that I might be running, or had run, in vain” (Galatians 2:2).
Are we running in vain? Are we missing the mark? Our founder John Robert Stevens’ revelation was that God wanted to establish a Kingdom under Christ’s Lordship. The direction and goal for this fellowship has always been the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the bringing forth of His Kingdom.
If we are to move forward with John Stevens’ vision, we must honestly evaluate our behaviors and our methods. Are we bringing our churches, schools, and families under the Lordship of Christ? Ephesians 4:12-13 describes our goal: for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.
We begin this journey together by breaking bonds, creating an atmosphere of objectivity, and laying everything before the Lord.
