“A House of Prayer: (Not a Hospital)”

“A House of Prayer. (Not  a hospital!)”

Many local congregations  often say that  the church is a hospital.   If the church is a hospital;  does this mean that it  is a place for the sick?  Then, does that mean no one ever gets well?

Think about this  for a moment.  Your body is the Temple of the living God. Christ Jesus did not come to build hospitals. “…He came that we might have life and have it more abundantly.”  John 10  He came to overcome, sin, death and the grave.  And to fulfill the law and remove the enmity put in place due to the original sin.  To restore us.  So, we could live differently and not be  shackled  or tethered to sin.

Therefore, Jesus overcame all these things so that we could be made whole!

A hospital has its place in society, and has become a modern-day necessity. Hospitals are in business to make money by treating the body, but not the soul. The Church is: “A House of Prayer. (Not  a hospital!)”

Prayer is our necessary  essential way of communicating with God. We can do this verbally or without speaking a word. The Word teaches us to  “Praying wIthout ceasing” is good. For  prayer  keeps us connected to God.

Heaven is God’s Throne and the earth is His footstool.

The local muliplicity of places of worship are for us to be able to  gather together as believers.  We can invite and  welcome non believers to get to know Jesus as well.  We  are to honor, pray, praise, thank and worship God.  As Believers we are to encourage the lost to accept Christ Jesus as their  Savior  and Lord and to  embrace salvation. When we do so sincerely non believers can become converted and reconciled to GOD…

Remember this Church is; “A House of Prayer. (Not  a hospital!)”

“Draw nigh to God and He will draw nigh unto you!”

In this 21st century it is believed by many that the Church is a hospital. It is often said that it is a place for the sick. Does this mean that no one ever gets well?

The Lord did not come to build hospitals. He came to restore us back to the Father and for us to have an abundant life in every way. The House of the Lord is a House of Prayer.

What is your place of worship? Is it a place of worship or a place of hospitality? What is its main objective? Is it a social place where many simply seek to find refuge with those they have much in common? Is it a place where you can come to take part in the activities and have a good time? A place to simply feel comfortable and accepted? A place where you can feel good, but not necessarily become transformed by the renewing of your mind by the Word of God!

THINK and ponder for a moment. Is your place of worship simply a hospital for sinners or a museum for saints? Is it here you can simply remain sick sinners for a lifetime?

The next time you are in an actual hospital look around and see all the hurting people. Take notice and see how crowded it is in the emergency room. How long the lines are, waiting for prescriptions to be filled. How long do you have to wait. Notice the many specialists, doctors, nurses and technicians scurrying about. Yes, it is serious business, how sad so many are ailing. They are all there for a multiplicity of reasons.

All things considered, is this really how you think “A House of Prayer” should really be?

All of these questions and more are addressed in my new book. Pick up a copy and go with me to my Father’s House, “A HOUSE of PRAYER (Not a Hospital).”
